    1. Login to the SharePoint 2013 site as an administrator.

    3. Choose a workbook which you are going to use as a source for your Power View Map.
    4. Click the Create Power View Report button in the top right corner of the workbook.
    5. To create a Map drag a geographic field such as Country/Region, State/Province, or City to the Power View sheet or view to create a table. A geographic field might be marked with a small globe icon. This icon identifies it as a geographic field. (We have used the “CityName” field from the demo workbook.)
    6. Drag a numeric field such as Sales to the table. (We have used the “TotalSales” field from the demo workbook.)
    7. Resize the table according to your needs.
    8. On the Design tab, click Map.
    9. Power View creates a map with a dot for each value, such as each city. The size of the dot represents the value.
    10. Enter the title and edit the map according to your needs. You can apply different styles and filters to it.
    11. Go to the File tab and click on Save as.
    12. You will be prompted to save your Map to the PowerPivot Gallery (you can change the location for it if necessary). Enter the name for your map and click Save.
    13. Your Map has been saved to the PowerPivot Gallery.
