Data Setup for BI Map

[ Edited ]

I am trying to setup a BI Map in M.App Enterprise 2016 update 4. I remembered there are a number of requirements that must be met in order to use the dataset in a BI Map.


My data is stored in an Oracle table.


The requirements I have so far for a polygon dataset are:

  1. No Geometry Collections.
  2. Two ID fields on the table (Primary Key plus a "Geometry Key" field) - why is this?
  3. Data stored in EPSG:4326 (also tried with data stored in EPSG:3857)

I can display the datasets fine in a Browser Map but in the BI Map I can select the vector dataset but it will not display in the map. The error shown in the legend is "Layer type is not supported".




I was able to create a Heat Map visualisation of the dataset so something is working, but I need to display the dataset as well in the map.


What could I have done wrong?

Re: Data Setup for BI Map

I still need to understand what the data setup requirements are for a BI map. Can anyone answer my questions?
