Custom Map joining an excel file

Hi all,

 

I am new to custom maps in Power BI and am finding it difficult to get what I want. I have successfully imported my topoJson file converted from a shapefile but I only get 2 columns.

How can I see the attribute table so that I may join an excel spreadsheet to this spatial file so that I can do calculations and represent my data?

>>I have successfully imported my topoJson file converted from a shapefile but I only get 2 columns. 

Topojson file is used to setting custom shape, it not means direct import file to power bi. After setting custom shape, you still need to import your map data file as source of shape map.

 

BTW, I think you need to take a look at below documents to know more about add custom map.
