Re: Icon Map from Altius

Great APP, I must say! I love it and am using it for my daily analysis. Thanks!

 

Is it possible to add in the "Tooltip" function like the POWERBI original map visual? So I can add in as many details as I want. For now the Icon map only has two possible details for Tooltip.

 

And for the label size and the size of the icon, I am having thousands of icons on the global map. It looks great when I zoom in for details. But when I zoom out on the global level, it is quite messy because the words and icons are overlapping. Is it possible to add an option, when zoomed out at a certain level, do not show any Labels and shrink the size of the icon.

 

And when zoomed out at the global level, the map is continous by copying itself like a long scroll but the data points are only showed on one "globe". Is it possible to expand the data to the whole map?

 

again, thanks for the great work!

@samihuq are you able to share your report with me, so I can look into this for you?

Re: Icon Map from Altius

@Ralphqiu Hi. Glad you're finding it useful. Yes - all things on my to do list. I also want to change the tooltips to use the Power BI standart tooltips so that when custom visuals support page in tooltips, these will work too.

How do you get the plane icon?  I want to show different icons for different types of commerce moving through its supply chain, but i can't even figure out how to get the plane icon let alone how to change it.

Re: Icon Map from Altius

Hi New2BINow

 

The plane icon isn't part of the map. The map will work with any icon - but it needs to be hosted on an external website. You create column in your data table with the URL of the icon you want to display, and drag that into the Icon field of the map.

 

eg;

 

Location              Icon                                                        Long                    Lat             Size

Home                  "https://myurl.com/house.png"             59.5                     4.3              30

Re: Icon Map from Altius

Hi

 

I really like this visual, looks impressive and I'm using it as much as I can. I have a couple of feature requests which would make this visual even better:

 

  • Colour coding by a property
  • Great circle lines cut off at the date line; if possible to wrap these it would look pretty smart

 

Kind regards

Eloy

Re: Icon Map from Altius

Hi @eloymora

 

Great to hear you're using it 🙂

 

Yes - working on both of these - I don't have a date yet - but hopefully in the next few weeks.

 

Thanks
