Null States

For reasons unknown, there are locations in the patentsview database where the US state is not filled in. Their values are null to indicate this condition. This page is sending in a get request to the /locations endpoint with the following parameters:

q={"location_country":"US"}
&f=["location_total_num_patents", "location_state", "location_country", "location_latitude", "location_longitude", "location_city"]
&s=[{"location_state":"asc"}]
&o={"per_page":100}

What's shown below in the table and resulting map are just the rows that were returned by the service with state values of null. The map below is initially centered on Indianapolis. To display the map centered on one of the null states, click on the corresponding radio button and then click the "Center Map" link. All of the states are supposed to be in the US (requested by my query and returned by the service as US) but clearly not all of them are in the US. Hover over a pin to see the city name or click on a pin to see the latitude, longitude and number of patents the location has.
