If you followed my blog throughout 2016 and 2017, you may have noticed a passionate focus on mapping in Power BI. What originally started as frustration with Power BI’s nascent geospatial capabilities became a small series of celebrations as new enhancements arrived. As 2017 turned to 2018, I consciously shifted focus away from maps to banal topics such as fonts and themes. All the while, I was working on a new publication for BlueGranite called Exploring Maps in Microsoft Power BI.
In some ways, this publication is a successor to my original 5 Ways and 10 Ways to Create Maps in Power BI posts. In other ways, it places greater focus on data preparation and visualization than those popular Pro/Con posts. While the core of this free whitepaper started out as an update to 10 Ways, I ended up writing about much more than what visuals and custom visuals are available.
BlueGranite also hosted a webinar last week with the same name and slightly more content than what is in the whitepaper. View the recording here: https://www.blue-granite.com/maps-in-power-bi-mar-2018
