Looking to learn more about Power BI Mapping? In a recent webinar, Nick Lee explored utilizing maps to their full potential in Power BI. He reviewed the many different mapping tools we have at our disposal, as well how to optimize map usage. There are several types of Power BI Maps, including:
We primarily use maps to organize sales and production by geographical areas. They are also crucial when trying to chart geographical trends and gain geographical insights. Maps in Power BI Desktop all use Bing Maps, so you must be connected to the internet to use this tool.
It is always important to follow best practices for Power BI Maps. These include using hierarchies, such as premade fields and ad hoc hierarchies, combining fields using DAX or Query Editor, and applying data categorizations. Using hierarchies is the first step in creating less ambiguous data. Watch the full webinar below.
