ArcGIS for Power BI

Map and analyse data in Power BI

Add a new layer of depth to data analysis within Power BI. ArcGIS for Power BI is a tool that enables you to map and visualise your data. The built-in spatial analysis tools and Esri's rich collection of global data can help you uncover patterns and trends that are difficult to see in charts, tables or spreadsheets.

Benefits of ArcGIS for Power BI

ArcGIS for Power BI offers benefits for those who create reports in Power BI as well as report viewers.

Visualise data on maps for unique insights

Convert any location—an address, city, state, ZIP code, place-name, boundary or latitude-longitude—into points on a map. The built-in smart mapping capability helps you choose the right style and display for your data. Design maps using a variety of basemaps, themes and colour settings.

Share Power BI reports with maps

Enable your organisation to make informed decisions by using accurate maps and location data alongside other crucial business information.

Data accuracy and security

When you work with an ArcGIS for Power BI visual, specific information from your dataset is sent to Esri servers to find locations and render them on the map. Your data is not saved or stored on Esri servers because any interaction with Esri servers is transient.

How it works

Open Power BI and look for the ArcGIS icon

Click the ArcGIS icon and log in. If you have an ArcGIS user type license, log in with your ArcGIS credentials. If not, access it as a standard user.

Map your data

Move your location data into the latitude and longitude tabs in the Power BI console by performing a drag-and-drop operation. Choose your settings.

Share a Power BI report with maps

Send your Power BI report with Esri maps to others in your organisation using Power BI Embedded or to a larger audience using Power BI Publish to web.
