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.

Open the report in the above folder:

UK passenger numbers

The report contains data on rail station passenger numbers (excluding interchanges) for 2017-18. It's not just Power BI you're learning ... !


Remembering to summarize by the Latitude and Longitude fields (and not average them, as will happen by default) create an ArcGIS heat map showing that - as always - London dominates everything:

For bonus points, add a pin showing your home location (the one above shows Wise Owl's HQ).

Save this report as London calling, then close it down.

You can unzip this file to see the answers to this exercise, although please remember this is for your personal use only.

We don't (yet) have any tutorials on Power BI maps on our website, so for this alas you would have to book onto one of our online courses.
