Creating a Power View Dashboard
After you create your map, try moving your location field to the different drop zones in the field list.
The drop zone you end up on will vary according to how you want to see your data. In this example
(see Figure 17-35), moving the Gen_Zip field to the LOCATIONS drop zone fixes your map and
creates a nice view of your data by Zip Code.
Figure 17-35: Moving the Gen_Zip field to the LOCATIONS drop zone creates a nice view by Zip Code.
You have limited control over how your map looks. With your map selected, you can go to the Layout
tab and customize the map title, legend, data labels, and map background (see Figure 17-36).
Figure 17-36: The Layout tab provides a limited set of options for customizing your Power View map.
The map is fully interactive, allowing you to zoom and move around using the buttons at the
top-right corner of the map, as illustrated in Figure 17-37.

You can use the COLOR drop zone to add an extra layer of analysis to your map. For instance,
Figure 17-38 demonstrates how adding the Waste_Code field to the COLOR drop zone differentiates
each plotted location based on waste code.
