ApEx 4.0: Map not showing data points correctly

In ApEx 4.0, when working with a map region (World without Greenland) (Map world/world_wo_gr.amap) you might experience that not all data points are correct.
For example: when you work with the map “World without Greenland” and you choose a query with Series Type of Bubble, Switzerland is positioned in America while Spain is in the ocean.

ApEx 4.0 data points not showing correctly

Oracle recognizes the bug (9950531) and will supply a fix in upcoming patch 4.0.1.
Meanwhile as a workaround the next action is suggested: setting “Series Type” to “Map”, and the countries will be correctly labeled
