Re: The map visualization in Power BI Desktop does not work.

Hi @Oshchekhin,

 

Can you open  https://www.bing.com/maps/?

Try open cmd, input "ping bing.com".

If you can see time, you can reach bing.com. The smaller the time, the better the connection.

 

Best Regards!

Re: The map visualization in Power BI Desktop does not work.

Hi @Oshchekhin,

 

Please check these below:

1. Are there proper relationships among the three tables?

2. What is the data of the column "plant"? Does it have the right values of locations for a map? Could you please provide a sample?

 

Best regards!

Re: The map visualization in Power BI Desktop does not work.

Hello!

 

1) Yes, there are proper relationships among the three tables. 

2) The data of the column "plant" have values of locations for a map.

This problem 

I found this example on the official site microsoft rus:

http://download.microsoft.com/download/8/C/6/8C661638-C102-4C04-992E-9EA56A5D319B/Supplier-Quality-A...

 

I have this problem with any example, with any maps. Perhaps the problem is due to connecting to BING?  I do not know.

 

Thank you!

Hi @Oshchekhin,

 

Your sample works great. Please check if you can connect to Bing map. The Data Category of plant should be "Address", which aren't city names.

BTW, I hope your data isn't confidential. Your link is available to the whole Internet.

Tell me please how to check connection with BING? I think it's about this.

Hi @Oshchekhin,

 

I think you should contact your IT admins for professional advices. Some suggestions:

1. Open the page of Bing map: https://www.bing.com/maps/;

2. Ping bing.com in CMD or PowerShell.

 

Best Regards!

Hello,

 

Unfortunately, this did not solve the problem.
I'm sure that the problem is to connecting to Bing. But I do not know how to check the connection.
