There should be an analytics option on maps to plot a circle with a specified radius (km or mi) around a specified point (either using lat/long or a plotted value on the map). This functionality would be useful for determining the rough distance a person travels to conduct business at a certain store location or for determining proximity of events from a central location.

RE: Map Analytics - Ability to draw circle with a specified radius

I agree that it would be great if the "size" feature on the default bubble map had a switch to show as radius. It would need to use scale\zoom to show. I have read about using a mabbox Turf circle js, but this is beyond me. https://github.com/Turfjs/turf/tree/master/packages/turf-circle. http://johnbroomfield.com/2018/03/28/mapping-adventures-in-power-bi/
