Visualizing Snowflake Geospatial Data with Power BI

Rebecca O’Connor builds a map:

Power BI can leverage Geospatial data from snowflake with my favourite map visual – Iconmap – . Icon map can render points, polygons and linestrings using ‘Well Known Text’ format (WKT).

Snowflake supports converting geospatial datatypes to WKT. Not only this, Snowflake has the capabilities to perform the Engineering and analytical needs for Geospatial analysis without using any other tool. And the results can be visualised in a variety of medias such as Tableau, Hex, Carto or even a Custom built Streamlit application. I have written a Streamlit blog on this very recently.
