Power BI geographical filter on mobile app

Hello,

 

I am preparing a Power BI report that contains geographical information(latitude, longitude, city, etc.). After publishing it in Service, I can filter my data based on City where I am on mobile application, but just based on City.

 

Can Power BI detect and return latitude and longitude of my exact location? If so, I will want Power BI to filter my data based on my location(for example based on District of City).

 

Is that possible?

 

Thanks in advance.

Hi @husss,

 

As document said, current this feature support to use location geographic names as filter.

 

So if your geographical informations are stored in same table, you can use geographic names fields as filter to indirectly filter your visuals which created based on 'latitude and longitude' fields.
