In the previous post, we created an Excel workbook with a PivotTable containing data about Olympic medals and events. If you didn’t saw the previous post you can access from here.

Use hierarchies in PivotTables

In this post, we will create a Power View report to visually represent the Olympics data.

In Excel, click INSERT > Reports > Power View Reports.
ExcelData-22

ExcelData-23

ExcelData-24
Select City from Host & Sport from Medal Table. Apply Count (Not Blank) to Sport Field using dropdown list next to Field Name.
ExcelData-25
From design switch the Visualization to Map.

On the map, blue circles of varying size indicate the number of different sport events held at each Olympic Host location.
ExcelData-26
Drag Season Field to Color area. This will add different colors for different Seasons. In our case summer/Winter Red/Blue colors.

Just in few clicks now we have a Power View report that visualizes the number of sporting events in various locations, using a map, color-coded based on season.

Will come with more details in my upcoming posts, till then stay tuned, keep learning and practicing.
