Using different Visualizations within PowerMap

You don’t have to look at the map data just as columns, you can also use PowerMap to show the data as bubble plots, heat maps, and also as regions by changing the map type.

NOTE: This is part of the Using PowerBI to Analyze Dynamics AX Data blueprint series where we show how to use PowerView, PowerPivot & Power Map to analyze and visualize your data more effectively. If you want to see all of the other posts in this series, click

How to do it…

To use PowerView to show your Dynamics AX data within a Map view, follow these steps:

  1. If you change the Type of the map to Bubble then you will see the different values within the map as bubbles, proportionate to the value of the data point.
  2. If you change the Type of the map to HeatMap then you will see the different values within the map as hot and cold color ranges to the value of the data point.
  3. If you change the Type of the map to Region then you will see the entire region – i.e. state, zip code shaded in a color value that reflects the value of the data point.
