Map: zoom to selected, but show also not selected locations

Hello,

 

I'm struggling with some issues about mapping. The goal is to see a selected location on a map (customer) and also see nearby customers (so I can plan my visit to the nearest customer)

 

My idea was to plot the locations on the Map vizual. Therefore I used ad column like 'Adress Number, City, Country'. So far, so good.

Now, when I select one of the locations in my slicer, the map zooms on the selected locations and all others are not visible anymore.

 

So, zooming is OK, but disapearance of other (nearby) locations not.

 

Question: how to fix this? Choose an other visual, add extra columns or something else?

Hi JohanBrink,

 

The visual map in power bi is based off bing map, both of them act similarly. You can zoom out/in manualy after select value in slicer.

Jimmy,

 

Thanks for your reply, unfortunately i haven't solved this.

I'm working on an type of customer dashboard. A sales representative should be able to select one customer and sees wich customers are nearby.

 

I got this dataset:

Company Latitude Longitude

Customer 1

                  52,1051551

                             5,71221820000005

Customer 2

                  52,1135212

                             5,65183909999996

Customer 3

     52,1156517999999

                             5,71914190000006

Customer 4

                  52,1499005

                             5,65769750000004

Customer 5

                  52,4579400

                             6,41981639999994

Customer 6

                  52,1098259

                             5,71328879999998

 

The idea is to select Customer 1 and then see locations of Customers 2,3,4 and 6 on you dashboard. Customer 5 is too far away.

 

In the future we 'd like to put some intelligence in it so the representative don't only see the nearby customers but we like to add a visiting priority to them. But for now, showing nearby customers wil do.

Re: Map: zoom to selected, but show also not selected locations

I need the same type of functioanlity, which is how to select specific point on the map and highlight it but still show all other points on the map, so do not filter the data behind it. Any ideas?
