  • Ability to add multiple data-bound geojson/kml/shapefiles from URLs or uploaded files to the same map and apply different configuration and formatting options to each - including the ability to determine which are visible via conditional formatting and therefore a Power BI data value or slicer. (new maps only)
  • Added ability to add multiple reference layers from ArcGIS and format the layers independently
  • Improved the tooltip functionality for ArcGIS reference layers
  • Added ability to set data-bound vector tile URLs using conditional formatting.
  • Added the ability to add multiple WMS overlay layers with each layer configurable via conditional formatting, including its visibility.
  • Added ability to add multiple raster reference layers, set the URLs and visibility with conditional formatting.
  • Added option to enable animation for zooming and panning around the map when data is sliced or drilled down.
  • Added ability to configure circle radius for data-bound vector tile layers with point data.
  • Added ability to specify the zoom levels where layers are visible to data-bound vector tile layers, circles, images, H3, geoJSON data-bound layers, WKT/GeoJSON, map labels, lines, GeoJSON / KML / Shapefile reference layers, WMS overlays

  • Added ability to specify specific layers to display from data-bound vector tile layers
  • Added ability to specify multiple GeoJson / KML / Shapefile reference layers.
  • Improved data-bound vector tile performance.
  • Added ability to add multiple data-bound vector tile layers
