Is it possible to do K-Means Clustering using more than 2 Variables?

I'm curious whether PBI's default clustering features accommodate clustering when looking at multiple variables, since realistically, there might be several variables to take into consideration.

 

I've only done this using Scatter Charts where there were two variables so far, so I'm not sure if the capability goes beyond that.

Re: Is it possible to do K-Means Clustering using more than 2 Variables?

Hey,

 

using DAX to create kmeans can be become "sporty", maybe you want to use an R script visual as mentioned here:

There is also a R script visual available as a custom visual.

 

Hopefully this provides some ideas.
