Super charge your Power BI reports and dashboards with Data map visual. Discover hidden pattern in your data and get a better understanding of spatial trends and patterns. Add a location context to measures and derive deeper location aware insights.


  • Use Coordinates or Well-know texts from Power BI dataset
  • Integrate Power BI datasets with external spatial datasources
  • Support for GeoJSON, KML and ArcGIS feature service layers.
  • Use basemaps from OpenStreetMap, MapTiler or Mapbox
  • Use heatmap, point clusters or standard symbols
  • Conditional formatting to symbolize features colour and size
  • Drill down upto 7 hierarchical level
  • Support for all EPSG projection system

Getting started

Data map requires atleast one category field to get started. Fields

  1. From the Fields pane, drag a field to catgeory field. This will change the visual from landing page to world map with OpenStreetMap as base layer.
  2. At least one other field is required for cross higlighting to work.
  3. We can use coordinates from Power BI dataset to display points, add longitude/X-coordinate and latitude/Y-coordinate fields. Both these fields are required to display point features using coordinates.
  4. We can use well-known text to display any geometry such as point, line and polygon. Drag a field containing WKT to Well-known text field bucket.
  5. Both WKT and Coordinates can be used at the same time to display features on map.
  6. Single or multiple tooltip fields by dragging them to Tooltip fields bucket.

Note: Tooltip setting should be turned on in format panel for tooltips to be visible.
