The Azure Maps Visual for Power BI has officially been released! Want to check out the exciting updates and improvements to its existing features? Let's take a closer look at some of the highlights of this release.




New Map Style

One of the most striking changes in this release is the introduction of our new unified map style that provides users with a more modern and appealing look and feel. This updated user interface also gives users new ways to interact with data, expanding and enhancing the overall user experience.



Extra Data Layers

The Azure Maps Visual for Power BI now includes support for various data layers, including heat maps, filled map, 3D columns, bubble, and pie charts. These various visualization options give users more flexibility to layout their location-based data, making it easier to identify patterns and trends.



Improved Interactivity

Interactivity features, such as "on-object" interaction, allow users to have greater control over their data to pull out deeper insights and make better decisions based on what they see.




Control the Map

The enhanced map features now available in the Azure Maps Visual for Power BI provide users with more control over the appearance and functionality of their maps, including the ability to zoom in and out, pan the map, select areas, and adjust the map's orientation.


Better Performance

Azure Maps visual for Power BI has been optimized for faster load times, better rendering performance, and improved responsiveness. This means users can work with larger datasets and still have a seamless experience, allowing them to make better decisions based on their data.


It is time to Upgrade!

Existing Azure Maps in Power BI projects can upgrade their Map visual to Azure Maps visual for Power BI whenever they open reports that contain the old Maps Visual. Upgrading to the new Azure Maps visual for Power BI will provide all of the great things we have noted above, greater control, eye-popping visuals and more flexibility when analyzing data.
