How to use Power BI Azure Maps Visual?

We want to use Azure maps in place of the old bing maps in our Power Bi reports. Azure maps for Power BI is currently disabled in our organization. If we enable it in our organization, will it start incurring charges? If yes, how much are the charges and how will we be able to limit the charges?

We aim to use it in our Power BI Pro workspace.


  • The Azure Maps visual in Power BI is part of Power BI and has no additional costs. In the future there may be additional features that could be enabled that may have charges related to them, but you would likely have to opt into these and those costs would be clearly documented. Documentation on the Azure Maps visual can be found here: https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/azure-maps/power-bi-visual-get-started
