Join Gini von Courter for an in-depth discussion in this video Create map visualizations, part of Power BI Pro Essential Training.
- [Voiceover] I've added another page to our report…for territories, so that we can take a look…at a few intricacies of working with geo-spacial data.…The types of data that we can plot on a map…include things like the postal code,…the territory which in this case is actually state,…city, street addresses in some cases,…and it's helpful if you actually are using…the appropriate geographic names for the column headings.…
For example, if there's no reason to call…this territory, it's helpful if it's called state.…It's helpful if this is called city,…and you'll notice in our city data…that if we list it in a table,…it actually shows us city, comma, and then…the abbreviation for the name of city,…and that's important, because when you have…city comma state, then Power BI…knows the difference between Washington, DC,…and the state of Washington.…
We're used to making sure that we have…city and state in separate columns,…but it's actually very helpful to the mapping feature…to have them together like this,…with a comma between the two fields.…
