Issue

Even though Maps are selected on Show Me, ZIP codes of some countries are displayed as dots. 

Environment

  • Tableau Desktop

Resolution

This is by design.

Cause

Tableau uses map data provided by our mapping partners: Map Data Partners. If polygons of ZIP codes of a country are not included in the map data, ZIP codes are displayed as dots.
