Power Map is a new 3D visualization add-in for Excel for mapping, exploring, and interacting with geographical and temporal data, enabling people to discover and share new insights. Power Map Preview is now a part of Power BI for Office 365 Preview. 

Power Map is a new 3D data visualization add-in for Excel that provides a powerful method for people to look at information in new ways enabling discoveries in data that might never be seen in traditional 2D tables and charts. Power Map lets you plot geographic and temporal data visually, analyze that data in 3D, and create visual tours to share with others.

With Power Map you can:

  • Map Data: Plot up more than million rows of data in 3D visually on Bing maps from an Excel worksheet table or the Excel Data Model.
  • Discover Insights: Discover new insights by seeing your data in geographic space and seeing time-stamped data change over time.
  • Share Stories: Capture screenshot "scenes" and build cinematic, guided video "tours" that can be shared broadly, engaging audiences like never before.
