Unable to Zoom on All Locations on a Generated Map

Issue

When using a map view on Tableau Desktop, the view generated does not zoom on the area where all locations selected from the filter should be visible

Environment

Tableau Desktop

Resolution

Review the underlying data for invalid values present in the coordinate fields (longitude/latitude) used for creating the map. To verify this you can create a new sheet and show the values of the Coordinate fields for each row. If you find non numeric values, filter out these values from the view and the map will generate correctly.

Cause

Tableau Desktop cannot generate the map properly when the Longitude or Latitude field contains non-numeric values for some of the rows selected.
