I have GeoIP configured in Wireshark, and when I go to Statistics > Endpoints and click on the IPv4 tab, I see location information, including latitude and longitude. However, when I click on the Map button, I always get a blank map; no locations are shown.
I'm using IE 8. When I click the Map button, I get a bar across the top that says "To help protect your security, Internet Explorer has restricted this page from running scripts or ActiveX controls that could access your computer. Click here for options." I click on the bar, and then click "Allow Blocked Content..." I get a second warning that ends with "Are you sure you want to let this file run active content?" I click "Yes," and the map appears, but there are never any location points shown.
Any ideas on why I'm getting location information, but not seeing the locations on the map?

You should probably file a bug on the Wireshark Bugzilla for this.
