Correlation plots can be used to quickly find insights, showing what otherwise would require lots of iterative slicing and dicing of your data.

Download this sample to see how a correlation plot can inform marketing strategies in different market segments.

1. Install R Engine

Power BI Desktop does not include, deploy or install the R engine. To run R scripts in Power BI Desktop, you must separately install R on your local computer. You can download and install R for free from many locations, including the Revolution Open download page, and the CRAN Repository.

 

2. Install the required R packages.

Download the R script attached to this message and run it to install all required packages on your local machine. 

 

Required R packages:

Re: Correlation Plot

This is a great R visual.  I have taken some time to build a complete tutorial on how to 1. Install R, 2. add R code to PowerBI, 3. Manipulate the code to change the visual.  You can follow along and learn how to build this here (www.PowerBI.Tips).

 

Enjoy,

Mike
