The enhanced map for Power BI offers anyone a starting place who would like to incorporate the popular Leaflet JS mapping framework into Power BI. D3 provides scales to handle the fill for polygons (choropleth map) as well as optional areas for points (bubble map).
A set of open source tile layers are provided with attribution to Open Street Map, CartoDB, and Stamen where appropriate. In addition, custom image overlays as well as an option for no base tiles are available.
Integration of SQL Server geography is available via WKT or Well Known Text format using the .STAsText() function. This is more of a proof of concept for integrating Leaflet with Power BI, so other popular geo data formats are not currently available but could certainly be added at a later time.
