Power BI video shorts | Using the Mapbox visual in Power BI
Posted by Sam Lowrie on 08 November 2021
Recently a delegate had the audacity of questioning if there was a better option than the built in map. Naturally for their crimes they were removed from the course however that got Sam thinking... In this short Sam shows how to use the Mapbox visual as a choropleth or filled map. Specifically for UK regions and local authorities but the process is the same for everywhere.
Duration: 8 minutes and 24 seconds.

Making a video bigger
You can increase the size of your video to make it fill the screen like this:
Play your video (the icons shown won't appear until you do), then click on the full screen icon which appears as shown at its bottom right-hand corner.
When you've finished viewing a video in full screen mode, just press the Esc key to return to normal view.
Improving the quality of a video
To improve the quality of a video, first click on the Settings icon:
Make sure you're playing your video so that the icons shown appear, then click on this gear icon at the bottom right-hand corner.
Choose to change the video quality:
Click on Quality as shown to bring up the submenu.
The higher the number you choose, the better will be your video quality (but the slower the connection speed):
Don't choose the HD option unless you have a fast enough connection speed to support it!
Is your Wise Owl speaking too slowly (or too quickly)? You can also use the Settings menu above to change your playback speed.
