Mapping latitude and longitude without showing coordinates in label

Hi,

 

I am trying to map some location data using lat and long coordinates but I do not want these to show up on the labels on the map (as they do in the first screenshot). I saw a previous suggested solution on here which was to use an average of lat and long values but I do not have the option to average them (see second screenshot). Does anyone have any other ideas? I want the label to only show the institution name.

 

Thanks!

Re: Mapping latitude and longitude without showing coordinates in label

Unfortunately, this is basic Power BI tooltip functionality.  Your only option is to turn off tooltips entirely.

 

Think of a tooltip when you hover over a line chart.  It always shows the data along with the value.  And when you hover over a bar in a bar chart, it always shows the category for that bar.

 

I understand your desire, but i hope you see how introducing that ability to turn the labels off for a tooltip could lead to misrepresenting data.
