Power View and Power Map in Excel Level 1 Course Outline

 (2 days)
Version 2013

Microsoft Power View and Power Map are Excel add-ins that provide an interactive data exploration, visualization, and presentation experience for users at all skill levels. Pull your data together in tables, matrices, maps, and a variety of charts in an interactive view that brings your data to life. Using geographical data, you can create 2D and 3D maps. Including a time element will allow you to create timelines and movies that show the development of the data over time.

Excel Versions
Power View is an add-in program for Excel 2010 and Excel 2013. Its features are also integrated into Excel 2016. This course is taught using Excel 2013 software but the concepts are identical with Power Pivot implementations found in Excel 2010 and 2016 (or Office 365). Note: At this time, Power Map as an Excel 2013 add-in is only supported by Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows Server 2008 R2

Target Student
This course is for individuals whose job responsibilities include creating advanced interactive reports, visualizations, dashboards and mapping.
