Edit the map contents

In addition to the standard visualization styling options, ArcGIS for Power BI includes a set of map tools that allow you to customize the contents of the map and how they are displayed. The map tools appear as a series of buttons on the map. By default, only the Map tools button Map tools appears on the map. Click it to expand the tools.

Note:

As a report designer, you can hide some of the map tools, including the navigation tools, the Layers list, and the Search feature. Some tools are available only to report designers.
