A report showing the results of the EU Referendum. It uses the new shape map visual to allow you to click on a particular area to view the results for that location.
Data is sourced from the Electoral Commisssion. For England and Wales additional data is sourced from the Office for National Statistics to show the Age profile in the area selected.
That map is really useful but I can't reproduce this.. is there anyway I can download this from the visuals gallery or what do I need to get the same map layout?
No need to download the visual, it's in the latest release of Power BI Desktop, but it's a preview feature so you need to enable it. Follow the instructions here: https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/documentation/powerbi-desktop-shape-map/
There's now the ability to add your own maps in TOPOJSON format which is what I've done for this report. Lots of sources of these on the net, or they can be easily converted with free online tools.
Hope this helps.
