In Power BI Desktop, you make a Shape Map in Power BI visual to demonstrate relative examinations of districts on a guide by applying distinctive hues to various areas. As opposed to the Map visual, Shape Map in Power BI Desktop can’t demonstrate exact topographical areas of information focuses on a guide; rather, its primary reason for existing is to indicate relative correlations of locales on a guide by shading them in an unexpected way.
Power BI Shape Map visuals depend on ESRI/TopoJSON maps which have the convincing capacity to utilize Power BI custom maps that you can make. For example, topographical, seating courses of action, floor designs, and others. The capacity to utilize custom maps in Power BI isn’t accessible in this Preview arrival of Shape Map.
