Data transfer

When you work with an ArcGIS Maps for Power BI visual, some information from your Power BI dataset is sent to Esri servers to locate features and render them on the map.

ArcGIS Maps for Power BI only sends data from the following areas:

  • Location field well—When you place an address, boundary, or other location type in this field well, that data is sent to Esri servers to be rendered on the map.

  • Latitude and longitude field wells—When you add features to the map using latitude and longitude coordinates, ArcGIS Maps for Power BI uses its own geolocation capabilities to locate features. No information is transmitted to Esri during geolocation.

    When you create a drive-time search area, ArcGIS Maps for Power BI sends the latitude and longitude information of the feature used as the area focal point to Esri servers to generate the search area polygon.

    Data in the latitude and longitude field wells is also sent to Esri servers when you select features on the map to interact with infographics cards.

  • Search fields—When you add a reference layer or pin locations to your map, information that you type in the search fields is sent to Esri servers.

No other information from your dataset is sent to Esri servers.
