UK Heat Map using SSRS

download a shape file, there is one available here

extract all contents to a directly, not just the .shp file

create a dataset which contains postcodes and summarized data, simple example:

SELECT ‘WV’ AS post_code, 1 AS count

Drag a map report item to your new report
select esri shapefile and browse to your downloaded file
Set the map resolution to smallest size (i find that the report will fail if I use best quality)
set the position and zoom of the map
select color analytical map

tick the box next to label, select postcode from the dropdown box

change field to visualize to sum(count)

shape file:shape file
