shapefile to powerbi

Hello,

I am trying to insert a map (Lusaka) from a shapefile in power bi. Please note I have Qgis only/ no ArcGIS so cannot use the ArcGIS map feature. I used mapshaper to transform shapefile to topoJason but when I loaded it to power bi I got a map of the US. I followed the instruction from this article "Overcoming Potential Power BI Shape Map Rendering Issues" but the problem persists.

 

Any tips or links to useful manuals would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance,

Piotr

Hi @v-shex-msft ,

In the end it was a projection issue and I was inserting the JSON file in a wrong way. @Greg_Deckler has been super helpful in resolving my drama.

All the best,
