Power BI: Force Correct Locations on Map Visualization

If your locations aren't correct on your Power BI map visualization, you can make an adjustment to your dataset to force them into the right places. This is possible without having specific latitude and longitude coordinates. For example, if I try to map the city of Sydney then Bing Maps tends to place that in Australia. Unfortunately what I'm actually looking for is the city of Sydney in Canada.

The easiest way I've found to quickly correct this issue is to add a new field to your dataset that joins together as much of the location information as possible. For my purposes I would have City, Province/State, Country. So instead of using 'Sydney' as a location I am now using 'Sydney, Nova Scotia, Canada'.
