Map Location limit?

Hey All - I loaded my location into the location spot and I see only about 7 blips on my map.  If I zoom in I am able to see more but only around where that 1 dot was.  I have a fairly sizeable list of locations spanning about 6-12 months.  I had no idea why the US for example isn't covered in little blue dots as I know for some of the products that make up all the data are mostly in the US.  Then I thought well is there a size limit to how many locations this will take?  I then selected one of the products I know to have locations and unselected the rest.  The result is the US gets littered with blips.  I can only assume size limit here?  The coords are the same the whole column through but when I select a certain product - I get what I assumed I would see.  Any thoughts on this or what I can do to get all my data to show on the map?

Sure. Stop by and demo and that's fine as well. I believe I got a repro from another issue. Basically if you have a field in the legend and the number of rows are above a certain limit, we hit this issue.

Would you be able to send us the PBIX file to take a look at the issue?.

Hey Meysun,

 

I'll see if I can strip the file down enough to send you - its a project i'm working on for another company so they obviously wouldn't be too thrilled about me sending their info along.  Where would I send it to?  Or i'm in the area and old v- there, could stop by and demo it for you if that's an option as well.

Re: Map Location limit?

Hi, did you resolve this issue.  I seem to reach a limit when the datasets contain many thousands of points.  I'm mapping Longs & Lats which initially worked then they all appear centered on the top of the map :-(

 

Thanks,

Tim

Re: Map Location limit?

We are fixing this issue in the next update. Until then the workaround is to add a calculated column to the location field which has [Lat] & "," & [Long]

Re: Map Location limit?

Im having the same issue. I have lat and lons when I used ~2000 of them in the Dublin, Ireland area PBI worked perfectly. But now I tried 17,000 and have definietly hit a problem, for some reason it has decided on the 53.35 latitude to be the maximum. so only half the coutry is displaying as having customers and is also really slow. (I have a really good computer). Should I be using a licenced
Arcgis software for this amount of datapoints? Can Tableau handle this? Is 17,000 points a lot?

 

Tnx
