Using World Map \ Bing Map in SSRS Report in Dynamics 365 (and earlier)

Hi,

Recently I was working on a SSRS Report that will show the countries in the world map (Country was a custom entity in our CRM)

To create such a report, drag the Map report item to the report designer.

OOB we do not have world map in the Map Gallery.

Download it from the following location

https://mapgallery.codeplex.com/releases

Copy the download RDL to the following location (in my case – SQL Server Data Tools for VS 2012)

Select the world map

Add a Bing Map layer

Select Basic map

Click Next and select appropriate value

Click on Finish.

Next inside report designer, right click Layer Data

And specify mapping between the spatial and analytical dataset (our custom dataset here which has 2 column in it, name of the country and A2.

Suppose we have following countries in our CRM

The final report with countries highlighted in colors.

Hope it helps..

  1. Nishant, are there any licencing implications around use of bing maps, i.e. would the company need to have a Bing maps licence per user in order to use this?
