Power BI Map Size feature scale

[ Edited ]

Hello Community, 

 

I have created a map visualization, for locating bussinesses within a city and they are categorized (legend) by sector. The size of the bubble by surface area. 

 

However, everytime i make a selection using the filter (by Sector (ie Public or Private), the size of the bubbles change. This is missleading to the reader as there is no scale maintaining a fixed size of the bubble. Is there a way to fix the scale. 

 

 

 

Please, let me know if there is a way to fix the scale of the size of the bubbles. 

 

Thank you

Hi @Nikochi,

 

Based on my test, it is not available to fix the size of bubble. Per my understanding, the size field doesn't represent the fixed actual size of each bubble. Instead, the map visual draws the bubble based on the proportion specified by size field.

Thank you @v-yulgu-msft 

That is what I was afraid. Are there other map visulaizations that allow you to set some sort of scale?

Hi @Nikochi,

 

Unfortunately, I didn't find such a map visual to meet this request.
