  • 1.  My 1st Power BI App Hits a Snag :(

    Posted 22 days ago

    Hi team,

      I'm attempting to create my first Power BI application and it needs a Drilldown Choropleth map.  I've watched the Youtube video by Devin Knight and read some other blogs.  For some reason my map only shows an orange background and shows two squares instead of Jefferson County Kentucky postal codes.  My custom map shape is a json file that I converted to topojson.  Can anybody tell what I might be doing wrong from the screenshot and topojson link?

    For anybody out there who may run into a similar issue, the problem was my json file.  The site that I used for my shape file had multiple download format options so I choose json. I then used mapShaper.com to convert this to a topojson file.  For some reason powerBI did not accept this.  I finally went back to the site and redownloaded my file as a shapefile, converted it to topoJson using mapShaper, and it worked perfectly.
