Have you been sitting back thinking about building your own Power BI Coronavirus report, but haven’t known where to start? Many people tell me they want to get more practice using Power BI but don’t have any suitable data to do so. You can now easily build your own Covid-19 reports, and all the hard work has been done for you.
Below you will find a link to an open source Power BI PBIX download created by the Power BI specialists at coronadatasource.org. This report was sent to me by Robert Durec (who created the report and wanted to gift it to the community).
This is a PBIX file that includes all the connections to the data sources (updated hourly) and some basic measures and visualisations created. Anyone is free to download the PBIX and build out their own reports and enhancements from there. You will find some basic charts created for you, eg
But you don’t have to stop there. You can then build out the visuals you would like to see yourself and share them online or elsewhere (please acknowledge coronoadatasource.org for their work). Once you have built your report, you can publicly share it online using public sharing at powerbi.com.
Show Me and Others What You Can Do.
If you decide to download and build some new visuals, please feel free to share links to your reports in the comments section below. Show us all how you can explain what is going on around the world with your data viz skills. I may even come back to this article and embed the ones I like the most directly in this article – so go for it.
