Zip Code to Lattitude/Longitude

Hi!

 

Is it possible to use Bing functionality in PowerBI to relate zip codes to lattitude/longitude? 

 

Thanks!

Hi @jfunderburk,

 

In your scenario, you want to use Bing map in Power BI to relate Zip Code to lattitude/longitude. Right?

 

You should know that the Bing map in Power BI is just a visual. It can display maps based on lattitude, longitude or locations. However it cann't relate Zip Code to lattitude/longitude. So I'm afraid your requirement cannot be achieved in Power BI.

 

And I think you can try other ways. Please refer to following articles:

Thanks,

Or alternatively is anyone aware of a free API or similar resource to join the zip codes to? I need more than the 2500 requests that Google allows in a day.
