@elliotdixon apparently this visual is not perfected yet - if you read the comments at this link
seems people are complaining from the same issue
I couldn't get the HEAT MAP to look any better
Cheers to all who helped with this one. I ended up going with just the basic map as it showed the details I need for now. Hopefully an update soon will allow further manipulation of the way it is presented in PowerBI.
One remaining issue (which I would have thought impossible) is that I have events occuring in exactly the same point even with GPS coordinates down to the second! PowerBI then joins the two events and increases the dot size (and adds the value) annoying but something I guess I can live with for now.
Great help and advise on the forums again though
Bit late to the party I guess, but NZ is not a region of the world understoof by Bing. I have had lots of success heatmapping down to property size for NZ, but this has all been based on specialist polygons in other tools. I have had some luck bringing in shapes in my queries but it seems to slow down performance more than it should. Your last attempt is the best you will get out of the current powerbi suite. Bring in post code and you get mapping points all over the world, your lat/lng is the best you will get at the mo.
I imported this globe map visual to the visualizations pane but unable to see the images. Unexpected error messages is displayed each time as I click on navigation keys. After providing each value inut i can only see their names as legends bt no map just a white screen. can u help me and tell how it appeared on your powerbi desktop. m using the latest version of powerbi and visual too.
