Overlay 2 Maps of differing data

Our Field Tech Dispatchers would like to have job location data overlaid with crew location so that they can make better assignment and routing decisions.  We had make two separate maps which is not ideal.

I have included a couple of screen shots of our current implementation.


Hey Christy - where does the information for 'tomorrow's jobs' live? Same question for 'crew start locations'. 

In the future we plan to enable signing in to ArcGIS and using your private maps and layers as reference layers. If one of those layers you're using lived in ArcGIS, I'm wondering if that would enable you to put both of your layers on one map. One as Power BI business data via the location field well, the other as a reference layer from your ArcGIS organization. 


Just wanted to say that we have a very similar use case. The data for the 2nd (and 3rd, and 4th, etc.) datasets is in the Power BI model. Having the ability to plot multiple datasets on the same map - for example using different symbols - would be amazing. Reference layers would be more of a limited workaround.

Both of the measures that you asked about come from our SSAS Tabular Server (on premise) so the data that we would need to plot would be sourced from the Tabular. We are not sure if these would be layers or not.

We have a very similar need. Both data sets are in the Power BI model. We want to highlight a specified location and have a marker for that (ideally a pin) and then highlight features around it. The current pin ability does not work as the pin location needs to come from the data in the PBI model.
