Add data points to filled map

Hello All,

 

I have a simple filled map where I would like to include a handful of data points, in this case field offices. The states are shaded based on whether I am approved in that state (shown in green below). I've added the field office points manually using a graphics program so that you can see an example of what I am pursuing. I have searched the Power BI community board without success. I have also attemped to create this using R Visual, however it is beyond my working knowledge of R. I was able to plot the map and points, but I could not get the state shading to work at all. It seems like a simple task and I'm sure I'm overlooking an option through PBI.

 

Any help you can offer will be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Re: Add data points to filled map

@geotech so I understood your question, you want to shade the State but at the same time you want to show a point where the acctual office is? Is this correct understanding?

Re: Add data points to filled map

Hi @parry2k, you are correct. There are essentially two sets of data being displayed (or desired to be displayed).

Re: Add data points to filled map

Hi @geotech ,

After my research, I'm afraid it couldn't achieve in Power BI for now. Maybe you could try to generate a custom map visual,refer to this post:Filled regions and points on map. You can also come up with a new idea and add your comments there to make this feature coming sooner. Here is a similar idea, you can vote: Add customized points on Filled Map

Re: Add data points to filled map

@v-joesh-msft , thanks for that - the response seems to be similar to a few posts that I've come across after digging around the community. I'll do my part and vote on similar suggestions. Do you happen to have a good resource for developing maps in R Visual where I can format states based on certain conditions? I realize this isn't a R forum - I've searched on this topic for a few hours today and haven't come across anything yet on this topic.
