Power BI designer should integrate Power Map design experience, don't let Power Map just like a stand-along part of Power BI...

We are looking to improve our maps. A new Shape Map control is expected in the summer which will solve some of these issues.

RE: Power Map integration

GOV networks may not have the ability to connect to Bing maps due to security concerns. We have developed applications around local mapping resources and have invested millions in this capability

RE: Power Map integration

The map pointing to local or preconfigured special maps is critical to my customer. Approximately 80,000 users and a total revenue of 45 million a year/year needs to have this addon to BI ASAP. thank you, Alex

RE: Power Map integration

Even with the Shape Map control the mapping in Power BI is very limited compared to Power Map. We need the ability to be able to add large custom region files into the mapping as you can we Power Map. The lack of being able to customise the data in mapping is a major issue.

RE: Power Map integration

Power Map would be nice but much more important would be the ability to combine map layers based on WMS or WFS services. These services contain loads of map based data.
Esri Insights will be otherwise an important competitor of Power BI when maps are important.

RE: Power Map integration

The time aspect, creating animation and storytelling is most definitely needed. Shape is a start but a "playback" is a must.

RE: Power Map integration

The biggest selling point of Tableau is its mapping capabilities. If we're able to surpass it then we will greatly increase market share.

RE: Power Map integration

Hi More than a new shape map - we'd like the Power Map functionality currently in Excel within the Power BI toolset. For example, the 3D maps, the antimation, the Map storytelling, etc..
