Power Apps: Mapping Plot Points

External YouTube Channel

In this video, April Dunnam takes a look at the map control of PowerApps. For many apps it is useful to include this control which is based on the map material from Bing. For example, when displaying an address, it is a great help to display a map at the same time.

April: "Curious about mapping in Power Apps? Do you need to create a Power Apps application which lets you plot locations on a map? Maybe you want to be able to click on one of those map points and take action like see additional details, navigate to another screen, etc?"
