Hey @Anonymous ,

 

next to the shape map, already recommended by @Greg_Deckler and @amitchandak , I want to direct your attention to the awesome icon-map created by James Dales. The most current release of this visual is available from it's own site: http://icon-map.com/

 

At the current moment, this custom visual is the only one that can viusalize polygons created from point. New Power Query functions introduced with the most recent Power BI Desktop release (August 2020) might also be helpful. These functions are already inspired Chris Webb to write two blogs posts

Creating a multipoint polygon from your data might become a little difficult as the points have to be ordered. From a first glance at your data I'm not sure if a sequence can be derived easily.

 

Nevertheless, from my personal experience the Icon-map custom visual is able to solve almost every spatial data visualization task.

 

Hopefully, this provides some ideas to tackle your challenge.

 

Regards,

Tom

@Greg_Deckler @amitchandak  

Thanks for the responses. I have a geojson source file which i imported to power BI & it has the above columns. I tried to map the columns in shape map but I could not do that. I am getting only location, legend, color staturation options in shape map.
