ArcGIS for Power BI

  • Basemaps—The Basemap tool is now more intuitive to use. Previously, settings for this tool were managed from the Visualizations pane. Now, when the Basemap tool is turned off and you drag data into a Power BI field well, the Basemap tool is automatically turned on, allowing you to update the basemap. Click Reset to default or turn off the Basemap tool on the Format visual tab in the Visualizations pane or clear the field well to remove the Basemap tool from the map tools.
