Over time, this personal blog (somehow) became a Power BI mapping blog. As a result, it would seem odd to not address the newly announced Esri collaboration and ArcGIS Maps for Power BI here. My thoughts on the announcement from the Microsoft Ignite conference, however, have been expressed on the BlueGranite blog. Take a look: https://www.blue-granite.com/blog/power-bi-arcgis-maps-closes-a-critical-gap
Once the feature is released, I will likely have more to say about it here on the DataVeld blog. In the meantime, I am overjoyed that we will be able to make visually appealing maps in Power BI.
