Heat maps in Power View
It'd be REALLY nice to have heat maps capabilities in the map visualization of Power View, like those in Power Maps.
This is an OFTEN requested feature from our large enterprise customers
We are very excited to announce that we have shipped a heatmap layer as part of our built-in Bing map visual. You can read the details on our blog: https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/power-bi-desktop-march-2019-feature-summary/#heatMap
Heat maps would be very ideal for me especially when I do my analysis to understand where our clients are spending more time on the Power BI dashboard and what they are clicking most.

ESRI is a nice option but a big gap are those heat maps are not allowed to be Published to Web. T
In addition, the visual is pretty slow to load.
And, ESRI heat map does not work on aggregations....e.g. Sum(Revenue).
Todd Chittenden commented
ESRI "Heat Maps" are misleading because they only plot the heat signature based on the NUMBER OF POINTS in a given area, NOT an AGGREGATE of any field! In fact, I found one other major vendor of custom visuals claiming to have 'heat map' capability but in fact also only plotted the COUNT of points.
For it to be a TRUE heat map, you need a way to AGGRAGATE a value.
For example, if I have 300 people in near location A and each bought 1 widget, and I had 100 people in location B that bought 10 widgets each, an ESRI Heat Map would show that there was higher activity around location A.
Not sure what this is. Heatmaps is just conditional formatting of a table. We can do this already in PBI.

Shouldn't this be marked as completed? ARCGIS is one option, and Mapbox is about to provide an alternative in the store (it's already on Github).
We definitely need more clarification onexactly what data ESRI collect. From a UK perspective, using the ArcGIS maps add-on to process any personal data would appear to be in breach of the Data Protection Act.

I am currently integrating this functionality to a Google Maps Visual.

Have anyone's concerns been address about data security for this item? The concerns below seem valid and prohibit me from using some feature or the tools at all as well.
I am also very concerned about data security. My implementation cannot have data the data touching a third party (beyond Microsoft). It's not clear in ESRI privicy policy if they are collecting "personal" information (name/contact info) which is fine, or actually collecting data being used for visualizations.
I agree with Andy and Bradely regarding their concern for confidential data. Please do not close this very relevant item unless the proposed solution for heat map is one that do not require data to be shared with external paries.

I agree with Andy (posted 10/6/16). I work with confidential court data. I need more clarification about what data would be shared with ESRI. Would more than the geographic data (address, zip code, etc.) be shared?
SOOO excited about this! Esri is great! Love the preview so far. Question - is there a release date or a preview version for the Power BI service? I converted one of my map reports but it's not displaying in the service. Love the development you guys are doing! Keep it up! :)
Will - this is an awesome addition!! I have only just begun to mess around with the new feature, but I like it! Great Job!!!

Is it possible to get aerial/satellite base maps as well?
The Little I have tested it works fine. I still miss legends in all of the maps I create. And I cannot change basemaps.
I guess this can be marked as complete since the ArcGIS announcement?

We also need badly Heat-Maps, for thermography.
Yes, Heat maps for location tracking on a custom floor plan, like tracking location in multistory building. it would be very nice.
Looks like this has been 'under review' a loooong time... Any update from the dev team ?
