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 report, and load data from the workbook in the above folder.

Create a field in the towns table to fix each town firmly within the UK:

Towns table

The new column should include the name of the country the towns belong to.

Create a map showing total quantity of sales by this town, using the region as a legend to get the colouring shown:

Colouring map by region

The map shows different regions in different colours.


Add a slicer to limit the towns to those in the regions you select:

Slicer by region

Here we're looking at sales in the London and South-East regions only.


Add another table to show the quantity sold for each shopping centre in any town you click on:

Sales by centre

Romford is shown selected on the map.

Save your report as Going to the dogs, then close this instance of Power BI down.
