Since we announced ArcGIS Maps for Power BI (Preview), we've been getting a lot of great questions and positive feedback.
Let's use this thread for a discussion of ArcGIS Maps for Power BI, including any issues you might encounter when using the feature.
You can find documentation here:
Some have asked for features:
A) Sign in to ArcGIS Online; it's on the road map ... vote for this idea to keep updated
B) Shapefile support ... use the ShapeMap visual
Starting Monday 2/14/2017 you may receive an error when opening Power BI desktop when you have enabled ArcGIS Maps for Power BI (preview). Please review this thread for further details. The workaround for this issue is documented here.
@scottball The full data set is not something I can share, however I created a quick demo to show the formatting problem and the incorrectly mapped postcode areas if that's any help:
thx for reply, i know about different limitations with different arguments (location, lat/long) and i tried to use both of them, but there is a little problem (for me ofc :)) that when i use lat/long (declared limit 30,000 by ArcGis) i cant make map with boundaries (states/regions)... am i wrong?
Yeap, you're right if we are talking about Location but not for Lat/Long, so:
that's what i'm talking about
Shape map has some issues, but this is another story 😄
That makes sense and this all sounds great. Looking forward to updates and embedded capabilities. Very disruptive to status quo...in a really good way.
Not sure if anyone else have this issue but when I publish (Web) to the public with ArcGIS, the map doesn't show. It's blank but if I change the map to use the built-in one, it works great and it shows but not ArcGIS. Anyone dealing with this?
I'm experiencing some problem with ArcGIS in PowerBI.
I need to use a public map because I need an Aerial/Satellite representation of data and I've choosen to use Word Imagery (https://www.arcgis.com/home/item.html?id=10df2279f9684e4a9f6a7f08febac2a9#!) but when I select this map nothing happens. No aerial/satellite layers are shown on the tile.
Can someone help me out?
no no I'm using Arcgis in Power BI and I've done the following: I went to Reference Layer menu, selected ArcGIS and searched for World Imagery. Selected World Imagery item and flagged "add".
Nothing happened to the map instead I was expecting that an aerial/satellite layer would be loaded...
Hope that I've managed to explain me better now.
Let me know!
I had np need tof this option , but i tried it out .. selected world Imagery and nothing happened too. So may be contact Esri on this as looks like there is another method to enable this.
I am having an issue with this visualization, in that I cannot seem to enable the See Records functionality under the Explore menu item. Is anyone else having this issue, and does anyone have any suggestions on how to get this to work?
Even though ArcGIS is enabled in preview features, and I have built a map using that visualization tool, the visualization has been completely stripped from my model (blank). After reopening Desktop, the AcrGIS tool icon in visualization is completely gone. What happened?
The visual requires network connectivity to load. Since you're posting here, you seem to have network. Can you share your file with us so we can take a look?
