Key-value pair mappings transform data in the ServiceNow platform to a value that
can be plotted on a map. Mappings are used during map source configuration when data
requires transformation. Each mapping exists in a mapping group.
Default system key-value pairs map data to geoJSON hc-key values. All hc-key values
follow ISO 3166 standards. Default mappings exist for the most
commonly used data values. If your data uses a different value, you must create a
key-value pair mapping.

For example, the default mapping for United States of America
maps key USA to
us. If your data has
value of United States instead of USA, you must make a new key-value pair to map
United States to ISO value
Add the mapping to a report source, so it can be used to map data from that source
to a map.
Navigate to the Locations Mappings [sys_report_map_source_mapping] table.
Open the mapping group to add the mapping to.
Select the mapping group that corresponds to type of object that you want to
create a mapping for. For example, if you are creating a mapping for field value
United States, select the Country mappings group.
Fill in these fields.

||The field value to transform. For example, USA.
||The value to transform the key to. For example, us. This
value is typically an ISO 3166 standard value. Each value
can be used only once per map.
