Re: Addresses to longitude and latitude

There is an "Address" data category. In the data model, click your address column and in the ribbon go to "Modeling" tab and then change the Data Category to "Address".

@Nahel88

 

In Power BI Desktop, when you specify an address, it will hint interal Bing geocoding to resolve it into accurate position on map. However, it's not supportd to return the interally converted Longitude and the Latitude information and resolve it into data fields.
