"Powerful Map Visualizations for Power BI"

What do you like best?

I like the fact that the map visualizations 1) rely on zip code / location data to populate more accurately than Power BI's own mapping service, 2) have more variations (e.g. highlight states, create bubbles for cities based on sample size / population size, and 3) provide more control for customizing (e.g. bubble size and color can be customized to make the visualization look the way you want it to).

What do you dislike?

The one very annoying feature is that map visualizations made via ArcGIS generally zoom out once you leave the Power BI tab in which you created them. This means that you have to zoom back in every single time you revisit the tab. For example, I created multiple map visualizations showing customer concentrations by metro in the US; however, the tabs in which I created them zoom out to show the entire world, which means that I have to zoom back in to the US every time I visit each tab. Please fix this!

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are on the Microsoft Stack, definitely consider using ArcGIS over Microsoft's own mapping visualization tools. ArcGIS is more accurate, more customizable, and more versatile than Microsoft's tools.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I was trying to map out our customer base by multiple attributes in a concise, yet meaningful way for managers. ArcGIS, via its zip-code / coordinate-based capabilities for plotting data, was incredibly helpful in 1) visualizing our data in a concise, meaningful way and 2) pointing out insights about the data which we had bene unable to notice before (since we had never looked at our customer base via a map.

"If you want to use maps in PBI, you use this"

What do you like best?

ESRI maps are really good. With a update of PBI a few months ago it has also gotten much faster at rendering. The visualization looks very good and it is simple to set up several layers of drilling. It's not often that we have a need to use maps in our data, but when we do, this makes it easy. Custumers really like maps and often look for a way to include them, even if they aren't the best at telling a specific story. Fortunately development time is not long, making it easy to assess effectiveness.

What do you dislike?

I have noticed that you must be careful as to how you design the data. This is true with most BI visuals but especially with maps because of the amount of rendering of layers they do. At times I have experienced some long load times. Our current data set is well summarized and we have removed unneeded data making load times almost immediate.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We were able to map our tier 1 contacted facilities and tier 2. We also mapped non contracted locations to determine market saturation. We can look at various counts by state, county, city, zip, and exact location. It is a quick tool to see where members are most heavily concentrated for services and it is integrated with our BI solution.

"Great integration of BI with GIS"

What do you like best?

It's a great break through to bring the mapping aspects inside the PowerBI domain. It's very easy to quickly add this visualization which adds a new layer of depth to the analysis and understanding

What do you dislike?

Improved ability to use different base maps would be great and there could be better support for more complex geometry types.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Check out the Gartner chart and compare where PowerBI is rated to other BI tools that are out there. We did side by side with Tableau and each had pros/cons but saw the most future benefits in this product

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It's added additional context to some of the business intelligence analysis taking data from the charts and tabular format and visualizing it on the map has made for better analysis and better decisions.

"ArcGIS Maps is rich, simple to use and makes your data pop"

What do you like best?

It has the ability to make multiple layers, such as a reference layer for demographic data--and if you were in sales this would be invaluable.

What do you dislike?

Some of the color schemes leave a bit to be desired and i found myself changing them quite a bit--a lot of pastels and that makes data blend a bit . I could be used to Power BI schemes however.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is the strongest spatial tool in Power BI right now and I'd heartily endorse it

Great for presenting quick, direct information that everyone can understand.

Working with a non profit, we have analysed both where the members come from, as well as where the corporate sponsors are located. We can then co-locate them, and see what program synergies can be created to benefit both sponsors, and members.
