Hurricane Matthew Tracking With Power BI

Chris Albrektson has a Power BI report tracking Hurricane Matthew:

We’ve got company and it’s not the type of company that you want! As most Floridians are preparing for Hurricane Matthew I thought it might be neat to track the storm using PowerBi. So I went out and found some public data online and brought that into PowerBi, created a couple calculations and some visualizations.

My goal for this was to create a report where I could track the storm no matter where I was. I also needed the ability to see the latest data without any manual intervention. PowerBi can handle all of this for me utilizing the PowerBi Mobile app and a few other cool features.

Good use of Power BI here.
