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
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
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.
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 :-)
