Distance And Bearing Calculation: Power BI Geospatial Analysis

Distance And Bearing Calculation- Power BI Geospatial Analysis

This tutorial aims to discuss how to calculate distance and bearing in Power BI and how to efficiently use them for geospatial analysis. You can find a lot of distance calculations on the web. For this demonstration, I’ll use a simplified example of a solution I needed to build for one of my supply chain

Power BI Geospatial Analysis: An Introduction

Geospatial Analysis

In this blog post, I’ll be introducing Power BI Geospatial Analysis for building compelling and dynamic maps in reports. Geospatial analysis in Power BI usually has a lot of restrictions. In fact, displaying actual multiple layers is not possible and requires some data manipulation. Moreover, both the default and downloadable visuals perform differently in geocoding
