Shape Maps - report server including base map option

Hi Shape Maps are not available in August 2018 Report Server.


This is one of the most often asked feature for our internal users. We've created a series of TopoJSON files.

We are neither national nor regional so having underlying an map would make it much easier to visualise where the shapes relate to the ground.

It would be brilliant if there were an option to display an underlying map (not all TopoJSON's directly relate to the ground, eg we've created HEX maps to show equal sized shapes as the geographic features can lead to visual bias). It would also need an option to set the transparency of the shapes so you can see the map behind.


This isn't availble in the cloud BI Desktop so huge kudos if you get it sorted in time for the January release 🙂

No, ESRI have been very quiet.
