Maps - Best Use?

I have some map requirements and wanted to know the best map visual to use for those requirements and if it is actually possible to build. I am showing a map of people within an organization (the people will represent the dots). I want to be able to click or search for an area and the number of people in that particular area be displayed. I would like to be able to key in a zip and get a count. Also, when clicking on that area, I would like to be able to export that group of people's contact information. Is this possible with pbi?

Hi @dwel0120 

 

You could create a measure to count the number of people and put the measure into a map visual as a Tooltips field. When you hover over a location, it will display in the pop-up tooltip. Or you can put it in a card visual. And use a table visual to display the contact information of people. When selecting a location in the map, the card visual and table visual will be filtered to show data related to the selected location. 

 

If you use built-in maps, you may consider using Basic Map or ArcGIS Map to display people as dots. You can also try some custom map visuals
