Josh Jones‌ - is there a roadmap for what features/functions/enhancements Esri is looking at in 2019 for the ArcGIS Maps for Power BI integration? It would be great to know what is being worked on now and what the future direction is.

Hey Mark,

We have two major focuses right now which are designed to increase adoption and usability. Beyond those two major focuses, we're continuing to push out bi-monthly releases with bug fixes - and we are actively watching Geonet looking for bigger ideas to add in as well.

Our next bug fix release should be going live at the start of February, and we're currently finalizing testing. This release solves some little things like highlights staying on the map even when reference layers have been deleted, place markers being offset in certain instances, number formatting on histogram labels, and so on. More details will go into the doc site once the release is out, but it contains several usability bug fixes which should make the visual feel better to use.

In terms of bigger 2019 goals:

  1. We are working on overhauling the UI drastically to bring the product more in line with other visuals in the PowerBI ecosystem. We would like to remove the need to enter "edit" mode as much as possible, since we believe it makes it harder to figure out how to use the visual. We're exploring ways to make that happen.
  2. We are working on ArcGIS Enterprise integration. This poses some unique challenges which we are working closely with Microsoft to solve.

Again, we're looking to be more engaged with the community to understand what users want in terms of "big picture" plans. We do have to ensure that what we're doing fits into the overall product strategy and where our product lives in the bigger picture both of PowerBI and Esri, but if you have ideas, please post them here on Geonet!

Thanks,

Josh
