Before you can do this exercise, you'll need to download and unzip this file (if you have any problems doing this, click here for help).

You need a minimum screen resolution of about 700 pixels width to see our exercises. This is because they contain diagrams and tables which would not be viewable easily on a mobile phone or small laptop. Please use a larger tablet, notebook or desktop computer, or change your screen resolution settings.

Create a new Power BI file, and run the SQL script in the above folder to generate the Make-a-Mammal database (there's obviously no need to do this if you already have it on your computer).  Load the tables tblCentre, tblFamily, tblProduct, tblPurchase and tblTown.

Create a map showing the sales by family for each town, but only for shopping centres having at least 100,000 square metre size:

Bubble chart

You'll need to geocode the towns to tell Power BI Desktop they're in the UK, and also increase your bubble size to about 50%.

 

Save this file as Trivial Pursuits, and close down this instance of Power BI Desktop.
