As promised, I bring you a review of the new Azure Map Power BI visual from Microsoft (now available in the July 2020 release of Power BI Desktop). Few tragic flaws make it unfit for duty yet, but the potential is there. I am excited for V2.
This video is not of how-to variety because I do not think I can add anything to whatever had already been covered in the Desktop release video from Microsoft. Instead, I am trying to assess whether I can start using this visual as is (the answer is NO) and also going over the features that will make this a default mapping chart for me once the current limitations are addressed.
Also, I am still not 100% sure whether this visual will always be available for free or whether we will be required to pay for Azure Map service after the preview phase is over.
