Coloring an entire state in Power BI

Was asked during today’s Power BI User Group leaders call how to fill in an entire state with a color based on a measure.

Turns out the shape map makes this pretty pretty easy and since a picture is worth a 1000 words have decided to save myself some time and create one with a screen shot.


You can also do this with the Shape map https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/documentation/powerbi-desktop-shape-map/ 

This gives you a different geo view as seen below.


Note: This visual hasn’t made it to the Power BI Service yet…but isn’t far off!
