Can I use multiple SVG files in one visual that change based on filter?

We have a list of 50 project sites. 


Once each site is mapped out via synoptic designer, I would like to insert SVG in visual, then based on project number, have BI select the appropriate SVG file.


It looks like something similiar was done in here - see end of video where they change between US map and EUROPE map, but I couldnt find the instructions to create the table where the SVG files live and how to set up the visual to be dynamic.

Hello guys, are there any updates on this ? My requirements are exactly the same as @triafrog33 . I just wanted to be able to filter through a collection of SVG files through a slicer. Please let me know. Thanks !

There is not further information. I guess, it can't be possible.

I have also the same problematic. It's not allowed to load an image.svg depending on a slicer.

Did you resolve the problem ?

Should be possible, you could just create a table with the SVG code and then have a measure that references the table and set that measure to be an "Image URL" I believe. 


Check out the SVG Quick Measures here:


Also, if anyone can answer this, @Phil_Seamark should be able to, he has done some aMAZEing things with DAX and SVG.

@ me in replies or I'll lose your thread!!!

Thank you for the information, I have searched through the documentation and have not found a solution as of yet. I was hoping it was simple like changing the JPG image based on the number, but I cannot get the SVG to render by using Synoptic or IMG custom visual in Desktop.


I will keep searching and update as I learn more!
