Re: Problem using custom shape map

Can you help me

i want to use some countries shape maps that are not in Power BI, for example Finland, i downloaded the GeoJSON file from here

Re: Problem using custom shape map

Hi!

The GeoJson you had behind the link has things throwing PowerBI off,

  1. it has Scandinavian chars (e.g. &auml = ä "Itä-Uudenmaan maakunta") - reading this evening through several stack traces when trying to feed multipolygon GeoJson for PowerBI, it just rolls down and cries if it sees something outside Latin1. meh.
  2. according to validation feedback from GeoJsonLINT the GeoJson you have there also does not follow the right hand rule, which seems to be a thing also.

Having run around internjets for a moment now seeking for a suitable source, I am not seeing a clean WGS-84 compliant, right-hand rule -following GeoJson of Finnish borders, let alone one with e.g. postalcode area geographies. I will do something about it (create one, validate it, test it with PowerBI) tomorrow and be back. In case I succeed and you are still struggling with this, ping me at

Re: Problem using custom shape map

I  was able to take Shape Files straight to http://MapShaper.org, import them, and in the Console window, run -proj wgs84 and convert the map to something Power BI would accept.

Re: Problem using custom shape map

This response needs to be ranked higher. Our security settings at work prevent us from installing qgis, and arcgis is too expensive. But running "-proj wgs84" in the console dialog worked like a freaking charm.

Re: Problem using custom shape map

I have tried for weeks to convert to the correct projection, but it does not work...  could someone convert this shape to topojson please? I have tried with QGIS, ARCMAP, used http://mapshaper.org/ but it continues showing in powerbi the Picaso Effect, The link of the shape is this : https://drive.google.com/file/d/1kbY_HkCulQzWD8SgJkP9nHu9bjmILY3U/view?usp=sharing
