Here is a simple technique for the Shape Map in Power BI that allows additional focus on relevant polygons as well as adds some enhanced appeal.
In the Power BI Desktop update last May, Microsoft released “Quick Calc”. As a convenient feature that eliminates the need to write a custom DAX expression for a simple percent of total calculation, it was lauded at the time of release. Does Quick Calc have a future with the addition of more convenient built-in calculations? I hope so.
In a previous post, I framed the Microsoft Professional Program in Data Science (MPP) and discussed some of the benefits of the program at a high level. In this post, I hope to discuss in more detail my experience with the MPP and what it provided for me and the hundreds of others who took part in the initial cohort.
The MPP is a program designed to help provide core skills in data science and advanced analytics. After completing the program, you have a professional credential showcasing that you have competency in data science concepts and how to apply them.
With the preview launch of ArcGIS Maps for Power BI, one unexpected improvement is the ability to enhance tooltips. Whether you would like to add an image, formatted text, a table, or a list; you have a few different options to enhance your tooltip with HTML.
One of the nice features of the ArcGIS visual is that you can add a reference layer that sits on top of your basemap but below your data. The ability to search means that you can provide your own custom reference layers simply by creating and sharing them first in ArcGIS Online.
With the September release of Microsoft Power BI Desktop, the recently announced ArcGIS Maps for Power BI are available in preview. After having an opportunity to use the Esri ArcGIS map for the first time in PBI Desktop, it is an impressive step up from what Power BI had before.
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.
