Draw Polygons in PowerBI Maps

  • 1.  Draw Polygons in PowerBI Maps

    Posted 4 days ago
    I am looking for help, to draw different polygons in a map, and then use filters to highlight this areas.
    The origin of the data is a CSV table with different columns, and the one I need to work, shows this info:

    Data of a Polygon

    Then I have the different columns with text, and so on...the problem is to insert this data, and create the map, or draw the polygon, perhaps as a layer.

    Looks like the data is in geojson format. Load it into mapshaper.com, convert to topojson, and then load into the shapemap visual as a custom map.

    ​I've also been looking into this and the avenue I want to go down when I find time is using Python's geoPanda's class. My understanding to date is that the Py visual gives you flexibility to manage layers in your map as well as geometries. The shape map visual with TopoJson format is great, but not quite all I want...

    If you're interested in polygons generally, the SQL BI product of Synoptic Designer works wonders. Insert your .svg and watch it go!

    Best,

    You guys should really try the Mapbox Visual in Power BI. It offers a wealth of features, including the ability to style your maps and easily add layers to any map.

    Check out my video on how to create a choropleth in the Mapbox visual using your own geojson:

    Here's another video of the Mapbox Visual in action using a geojson that I bounded to show only the City of Baltimore:
