Esri has announced ArcGIS Online users can work on their own private content directly within Microsoft Power BI using the built-in visualization software ArcGIS Maps for Power BI. âWeâre excited to offer ArcGIS Online users the ability to work on their own private basemaps and reference layers inside Microsoft Power BI,â said Scott Ball, Esri product manager for ArcGIS Maps for Power BI. âNow ArcGIS users can extend the reach of their authoritative location data from ArcGIS to their Power BI reports and dashboards.â Users can map data from any location valueâan address, city, state, ZIP code, place-name, boundary, or latitude and longitudeâwith a simple drag-and-drop operation. They can then use smart map defaults that guide them to the right style and display for their data. This frees them up to focus on the end resultâquickly exposing relationships and patterns that impact decision-making.
