Power BI Contest Entry

Today I submitted my Power BI contest entry and I’d love for you to take a look!  Here’s a short description of entry and the video itself:

In this submission I have used Power BI to help me plan a vacation with my wife. We both love thrill rides so I wanted to make the best decision on planning our next trip. Using Power Query I imported data from the web to find all possible roller coasters and amusement parks. I then took that raw data and made relationships and calculations using Power Pivot. Next, I visualized the results through Power View to help guide me through the data easier. Finally, I uploaded my workbook to a Power BI site and enabled Q&A to allow my wife to ask the workbook questions about our trip.
