        Looks like it's been almost 3 years this feature has been asked and no response yet from MS on the timeframe of when it will be coming. We are heavily relying on the Azure SQL DW and in need of this feature to do some map-based Power BI reports and don't want to go elastic query route. Please let us know when this will be coming.
        Thanks!

        Any timeframes on this yet? Don't want to go to the elastic query route just to overcome this limitation in SQL DW.

        Any timeframe on this or anywhere on the radar? It is a bit of a show stopper for heavy users of spatial data.

        Data Warehouse calculations on spatial data is a requirement for any modern analytics solution.
