BI Viewer - Choropleth Map Editing

Contributor II


Hi gang,

Does anyone out here use Choropleth maps in BI Viewer and was able to figure out how to create new Shapefiles? Bi Viewer includes a bunch of default maps (8 in all - World, Europe, Asia, NA, SA, USA, Canada, Africa) but I’m looking for SHP files by states (i.e. California, Texas, etc.).

Has anyone built different SHP files for BI-Viewer? If yes, please explain how?


Cosimo, you can download them for free from many sites. BI viewer guide explains how to import a custom map and what to do to bind the data.



Brother Celvin always comes through!


Where can I find that BI Viewer guide?


Can not access it. Is there a way to download the file? 


I'm assuming that you replaced the server name and port number with your server name and port numbers and you are on a 6.3+( I believe that's when the HTML help came out). If not you can download them from Marketplace.

Hi team! 

I have the same problem but in my case I need the SHP files by regions for Spain.  If It's possible ? I've tried to load shp map but an error appears, and in this web site I can not see the possibility to download SHP maps for Spain regions (madrid, catalonia, andalusia, basque country, etc)
