Synoptic Panel by SQLBI

by danieleperilli Regular Visitor on ‎09-30-2015 03:52 AM


Description: The Synoptic Panel connects areas in a picture with attributes in the data model, coloring each area with a state (red/yellow/green) or with a saturation of a color related to the value of a measure. Starting from any image, you draw custom areas using, which generates a JSON file you import in the Synoptic Panel. You can visualize data over a map, a planimetry, a diagram, a flow chart.

I think I'm having the same problem as @mitchvh.  It appears to have started overnight.  Yesterday I was demonstrating a report with Synoptic panel in it on iOS.  This morning, on all platforms, the report is there, but the page that contains the panel is blank.  I can open the report in Power BI Desktop, and can see the panel with data.  I re-publish, and the published report still shows blank.  I think I'm using a version of Synoptic panel that was available as of 10-Dec-2015 (is there a way to check which version is being used?)

@mitchvh @Sohrab I've just updated the component, it should be solved now. You can download it from

@danieleperilli thanks!


How do I use the new version in the report that I have?  When I do "Import from File" in Power BI Desktop, I see two instances of SynopticPanelBySQLBI.  Is there a way to "swap-in" the new version without re-authoring?

@Sohrab Strange... it should automatically replace the previous version component. I'm sorry, I don't know how to help you Smiley Sad

After using the synoptic designer to create an svg map file, I imported the most recent version of the Synoptic Panel visual into a new PowerBI report.  I dummied some data with a categorical variable, and a single value variable, and tried to make a visual with the categorical variable as the Legend.  However, no matter what combination of fields I try, the “Select Map” button will not show up.  It gives no option to select the file containing the visual map.  I followed the exact steps from the tutorial video.  Has anyone else run into this issue, or is there something I am completely missing?  Thank you!
