3410689 - Using GeoMap without latitude/longitudinal data in SAP Analytics Cloud


 GEO MAP can be used without longitude and latitude data with Live HANA database or not?


  • SAP Analytics Cloud 2023
  • Live connection

Reproducing the Issue

  1. From the Insert menu above the story canvas select  Geo Map.

    A geo map widget is added to the canvas and the (Builder) opens under Designer on the right.

  2. From the Basemap list, select a visual style for the map hosted by Esri ArcGIS.

    For example, the Streets basemap can help you clearly visualize city neighborhoods, while the Light Gray basemap provides a simple, uncluttered look.

  3. Select  (Add Layer) to add a layer to the map.


Behavior is by design.


  • Longitude and Latitude data is mandatory for geo map in sap analytics cloud.
  • Location ID and dimension is mandatory.
  • You can use location references from live HANA systems to create map filters, however both references need to be on the same system.
