Power BI Visualizations

In this Power BI Tutorial, We will discuss What is Visualization in Power BI, What are the different types of Visualizations present in the Power BI.

Also, We will see how we can use all these Visualizations in Power BI using some various power bi visualization examples.

What is Power BI visualization?

Microsoft Power Bi Visualization is a diagrammatical representation of data or records that gives you a complete structure of your business process. This visualization helps to share the reports inside and as well as outside of your organization.

Different types of Power BI Visualizations:

In Power BI, there are different types of Visualizations present. By using these Power BI visualization, you can display your data or records with various types of diagrammatically bar charts.

Here below, by taking an example, I will explain to you how we can use all the visualizations.

Stacked bar chart:

Power BI Stacked Bar chart helps to compare between multiple dimensions against a single measure.

In order to create a Stacked bar chart in Power BI, At first, Select the Stacked bar chart under the Visualizations section.

Once you will click on the Stacked bar chart, a dummy (with no data) visualization will create automatically as below screenshot.

To display your data with the help of Stacked bar chart, We have to enter the below-required fields as:

  • Axis: Specify the column which you want to display in the Horizontal Bars.
  • Legend: It helps to specify the column to divide the Horizontal Bars.
  • Value: Provide some numeric value such as Total tax rates, Income tax rates, etc which you want to display in the Stacked bar chart.

To provide the Axis section value, drag and drop the IncomeTaxRate column. Similarly, Drag and drop the Country column to the Legend section and NetWageEarningsAfterTax column to the Value section as shown below. (As per my requirement)

When I have provided all the value to the bar chart, then the visualization is appearing like the below screenshot.

Also, if you want to provide some style to your bar chart like Data colors, Data labels, Title Font size, Font color, Background color, etc, then you can use the Format section which is present below the Visualizations as shown below.
