    Map data

    With only a few clicks, plot more than a million rows of data* in 3D visually on Bing maps, visualize the data with 3D columns, bubble/pie charts, heat maps, and regions.

    Discover insights

    Visualizing data across space and time is not only captivating, but also informative. Notice trends and outliers in your data that was before hidden in tables and 2D charts. Use common Bing map navigation controls to travel across countries and drill into cities to get more out of your data.

    Create stories

    Data is meant to tell a story. Power Map is designed to help you tell compelling stories of your data in ways that work for you. Create scenes that focus on different aspects of your data. Use annotations to callout important details. Even change the map’s theme to fit your presentation style.

    Share your story

    Capture screenshot "scenes" and build cinematic, guided interactive or video "tours" that can be shared broadly, engaging audiences like never before.

  • Power View for Excel:
    presentation-ready

    A Power View report is always presentable – you can browse your data and present it at any time because you're working with real data. You don't need to preview your report to see how it looks.

    Power View in SharePoint has reading and full-screen presentation modes, in which the ribbon and other design tools are hidden to provide more room for the visualizations. The report is still fully interactive, with filtering and highlighting capabilities.

  • Built in forecast with Power View

    In Power View, you can now apply predictive forecasting, and hindcasting, when visualizing and exploring your data in your browser. Forecasting in Power View utilizes built-in predictive forecasting models using exponential smoothing to automatically detect seasonality in the data to provide forecast results from a time series. Explore forecast results by adjusting the desired confidence interval or by adjusting outlier data to see how they affect results.
