Stop Map from zooming out

I'm doing some geographical reporting for a state.  I have been provided the latitude/longitude data for the items to map. In the report, I have two slicers and a map. All of my data is being plotted correctly.



What I would like to do is stop the map from zooming all the way out whenever a slicer selection is changed. Ideally, I would like to set the base starting point to be zoomed in at the state, and allow them to zoom in further as needed.


Is there a way to implement this functionality?

Re: Stop Map from zooming out

This is a very frustrating feature of the maps.


Especially when the slicer selection leads to only one result/location showing on the map


because then the map zooms all the way out so half the country is visible


and the location turns into a single tiny dot that is barely visible even if you use map labels


I wish there was a way to control this so you can make it to stay over a certain town, county or state, region, etc...


so it would be able to zoom in the area you specify but not zoom out further than you set

Re: Stop Map from zooming out

Just encountered this today.  It is very frustrating that once single point is chosen, map zooms out to 1/3 of the country.  


This needs to be fixed - let users specify zoom levels.  SSRS 2012 had this set up to auto or %.
