    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.
