Identifying Visual Type in Power BI Sample - no indication

Hello, this is my first post here, so I am hoping this is the correct forum thread.

 

In the Regional Sales Sample available from Microsft's sample reports (from this: https://app.powerbi.com/learn)

When downloaded as a .pbix file to open on Power BI Desktop, most of the visuals, when clicked, I can identify what the visual is. For the map titled Forecast by Location, there is no visible visualization highlighted.

It doesn't indicate that it is a Bing or ArcGIS map, and it's simplicity would be nice for my particular needs. Does anyone know what this visual is built from?

Hi @SBusheyDewberry,

This is the shape map. It's a core visual that been in public preview for a very long time and will work in your report, however it has to be enabled in your Desktop settings to be accessible/inspectable.

The instructions here should help you get started with this. Good luck!
