Maps - Direction of marker


In power BI maps feature , I have a certain requirement.

I need to place markers (or an icon) in a particular place in the map based on the latitude and longitude. This is straightforward and easy to do

But the requirement is the Icon should be in the direction of where its facing . Suppose If its a  fleet of "trucks" , i want to keep a small vehicle icon facing the north direction (based on a "direction" column)

I dont need to trace the route of the vehicle or anything. Just to rotate the icon as per the direction mentioned in column field. Please help..

Re: Maps - Direction of marker

Hi @hkmurali,


Based on the documents and my test, I afraid this is hard to achieve. If you can add an icon in the map, maybe you can add an predefined icon, which has direction and type (trucks). 

name              type               direction    iconURL

TruckNorth     vehicle            North       http://... ...

TruckSouth     vehicle            South       http://... ... 

TruckWest      vehicle            West         http://... ...

TruckEast        vehicle            East          http://... ...

... ... 

If you achieved this, could you please share with us. 


Best Regards!
