Map point position varying with parameter slider

I inserted lat long coordinates in two different parameters (what if function), however I'm not able to update my custom visual map with this point, once the databases are not linked.

Re: Map point position varying with parameter slider

Hi @Anonymous,


You want to update the data points located on map visual via the specified numeric value in What If Parameter, right? However, this is not possible. As the data points in map visual is determined by the field [lat] and [long] which are not related to the what if parameter. The What If Parameter works only when you use the corresponding measure Parameter Value = SELECTEDVALUE(Parameter[Parameter]) in other calculations. In your scenario, you just need to add [lat] and [long] into two common slicers.

Re: Map point position varying with parameter slider

Hi @v-yulgu-msft, thanks for help, unfortunatelly still not working.. I'd like to provide to the user the ability to select the position (only 1 point, 1 lat/long pair) where the evaluation will begin. Below you can find my .pbix file with test and errors messages:
