Re: Create Your Own Custom Map for Power BI

Hi - great work! It seems to be working for me, i.e. the two test shapes I created appear and render fine........but there is no background map.........what am I missing?

I'm not sure what you mean by background map.    I see two shapes rendered.  You want to make sure your Default Color Border Color and Border Thickness in the Visual Formatting Options

Re: Create Your Own Custom Map for Power BI

Amazing post. great work. thanks for sharing.

I have been working on soemthing similar and have got to the point I want to try and build a custom map visual but don't know where to start.

In summary what I am trying to do is create a distance based circle from my data to show coverage from a centoid (chosen suburb). My data has a radius stored as Kilometers and I was hoping to use the size and buble visual, but it does not scale properly. It would be great if there was a switch to do this and take in to consideration the scale to size the circle on the map.

Here is a link to what I have done so far. My mapping Adventures in Power BI

Any suggestion on where to start building a custom map visual to show radius distance circles in Power BI, would be appreaciated

Cheers

John

Re: Create Your Own Custom Map for Power BI

Are you able to add another layer to these maps? My end goal is to have the UK postcode districts (which I have already created) and then to have certain points on this map (by longitude and latitude)? Any help or advice would be much appreciated.

Re: Create Your Own Custom Map for Power BI

Almost there....

 

I can see the US county map in mapshaper

change to albersUSA in mapshaper

then export as TopoJSON

add to Shape map in Power BI

add matching field name to location

change to custom map and point to the new json file

then the map looks like all the shapes are STACKED on top of each other

if i try the equirectangular projection i can see the outline of the US and Alaska and Hawaii are in the correct location but all the boundaries are routing to the middle

Using the Mercator projection, all shapes are stacked

any ideas?  i'm sooooo close :-)
