See Selection tools to learn about the available tools for selecting features.
When you select features on a data layer using the selection tools, Power BI visualizations, such as charts and graphs, automatically update to show information about the selected features. When you select features on a reference or buffer/drive-time layer, you can update Power BI visualizations.
To select features on a reference or buffer/drive time layer, complete the following steps:
- Expand the map tools.
- Click the Select features button .
The Select features pane appears.
- Choose a reference layer or buffer/drive time layer from the Active layer drop-down menu.
The Interact with Power BI Visuals check box appears in the Select features pane and is selected by default.
- Uncheck the Interact with Power BI Visuals check box if you do not want the features you select to automatically update your Power BI visualizations.
- Select features using the selection tools.
Selected features are highlighted on the map and unselected features are not available. Power BI visualizations are updated if you left the Interact with Power BI Visuals check box checked.
