Using Canadian postal code (FSA) to make a filled map to show area boundaries

Is there anyway to make a filled map using the forward sortation area (FSA) aka geographical region indicated by the  first three characters of the postal code?

When I add the FSA values and tag them as postal code I can only get pinpoint locations. When I add them to the filled map it only does a count of the FSA or forces a measure, so that doesn't work either. 

 

Is there any way to make a filled map that shows area boundaries without having to run a measure? I'm hoping to create some this like the picture below but will power bi filled map

Hi @xbrenes,

 

I would suggest "ArcGIS map" for your scenario after trying other two maps. 

1. Open "Options" in Desktop or "Settings" in Service, check "Use ArcGIS maps for Power BI";

2. Open visualization "ArcGIS map for Power BI (preview)", add FSA codes to location.

3. Click the ellipsis, select "Edit";

4. Change the settings as the second picture showed.
