    This is possible if you've got a dedicated GIS program and use the shapemap visual. We've been using ArcGIS to create custom shapefiles for this purpose (by using the Dissolve tool), then using a website called Shape Escape to convert to TopoJSON and they're importing beautifully into Power BI Desktop. Tried converting using another website, and it wasn't playing nicely when imported - but I'm not affiliated to the website mentioned above either - it just works.

    Another update on this item – users now have the ability to set up scheduled subscriptions with paginated reports and 6 different formats, along with parameters per subscription to allow further personalization. There is also now the ability to create paginated reports against any Power BI dataset in the service, and we’re planning to add drillthrough from Power BI to Paginated Reports in the short term.

    We still have plans to support e-mail attachments for Power BI reports as well in the coming months, and we’ll share more specifics once we get closer to starting that work.
