PowerPivot | Power View exercise | Create a map of transactions by town, and play it over time
This exercise is provided to allow potential course delegates to choose the correct Wise Owl Microsoft training course, and may not be reproduced in whole or in part in any format without the prior written consent of Wise Owl.
You can learn how to do this exercise on the relevant Wise Owl classroom training course (sadly for the moment only in the UK).
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.
If you haven't already done so, run the SQL script in the above folder (copying and commercial use prohibited) to generate a database called MAM. Also if you haven't already done so, run the spCreateCalendarTable stored procedure to create a calendar table.
Use Power Map (not Power View maps) to create a map showing the number of transactions per town, applying a filter to show only towns starting with D):
The towns whose names start with D.
Now add the calendar date field to the TIME section of the map, and set the video options as shown below:
Each chart will stay where it is until the next day's data replaces it.
Run this video: the effect should be pleasing, if somewhat pointless!
Save this workbook as Town planning, then close it down.
