This should be really simple, but I've screwed up a map several times trying to figure it out and I'm working on a deadline, so I don't have any more time to play around with it.
I just want to produce a map where the base shows only the state of Massachusetts, and none of the surrounding states. There's a FAQ link on how to do it, but I can't seem to figure it out. http://docs.cartodb.com/faqs.html#how-can-i-show-only-one-countryarearegion-on-a-map
I've applied the SQL query
SELECT * FROM tablename WHERE name = 'Massachusetts'
to my map, but it doesn't seem to do anything besides screw up the filters/legend/settings I have in place.
Am I missing something critical?
