Reporting Services - Introduction videos | SSRS Part 20 - Basic Maps
Posted by Andrew Gould on 29 October 2012
Maps in reporting services, as in real life, are the perfect way to present geographical data. This video starts by teaching you how to insert a map into a report, including how to find maps for the strange and unfamiliar world beyond the USA. Importantly, you'll learn how to connect a map to a dataset followed by how to visualise the data using a combination of colours and markers. You'll also learn a few geeky geographical tweaks you can make to your maps, including how to add longitude and latitude lines and how to change the projection type. Ever wondered what the difference is between Mercator and Hammer-Aitoff projections? Watch this video to find out!
You can increase the size of the video:
You can view the video in full screen mode as shown on the left, using the icon at the bottom right of the frame.
You can also increase the quality of the video:
You can improve the resolution of the video using another icon at the bottom right of the frame. This will slow down the connection speed, but increase the display and sound quality. This icon only becomes visible when you start playing the video.
Finally, if nothing happens when you play the video, check that you're not using IE in compatibility view.
