i had this problem, but solve in another way in this link : http://www.projanco.com/
We would like to display labels next to points/arcs/polygons in the Shape Map visualization. We would like these labels to be continuously displayed on the map, i.e. not as tooltips.
The idea is to use these labels for street names on a Shape Map that's displaying a small part of a city.
Is this technically feasible? If so, how?
Hi, thanks for the good article. I have issues finding the "add map" button in my visual. After I select the Shape Map visual, under the format tab, I don't see that option. Any idea?
You have to add at leat one data field onto the fields tab and then it should show up in the format tab. It could be more intuitive...
Hey, I'm new to PowerBI and I found this very helpful!
Is there a way to add a basemap to the shape map as well? Preferably some satellite data that we have analysed ourselves.
Adding images is not supported with TopoJson. I would look at Bing, ESRI, or MapBox to include satellite views.
Great stuff and perfect timing for a project of mine. Thank you! - Jude C.
Do you find the shape map to be slow? I have a custom map of over 350 region (ploygons). It is a pain trying to zoom in and out on the map or just do anything with the visual.
You might want to use mapshaper to reduce the number of points and then see if it works.
