I work in the Real Estate industry and receive requests to plot data points on map showing sales in which our company has participated. Everything went fine until I tried viewing all the data points and ended up with "Showing a Representative Sample". I would like the ability to show a minimum of 2500 data points

We need to be able to plot thousands of buildings within a given area. What's the point of this functionality if it's limited.

I need to plot 100k+ plot points. What's the status on this?

RE: Allow more data points to be displayed on a map

can we get a status review?
We have tried to move a Carto map to PBI and we had to explain our customer that the quality of the report will decrease, because even though the data has points on all towns PBI cannot display them.
Any other workaround, apart from filtering the data to

I think enough people have burned by finding this out via the end user saying there are missing data points.
Overall...I'm disappointed with how long PBI team is taking to address this.

I'll be exploring alternative options while this feature gap is addressed.

RE: Allow more data points to be displayed on a map

I really can't believe this hasn't been done already. It's really hard to use Power BI for all of our BI when I can't handle mapping data points. I'm only trying to show 15,000 data points on the map and I've hit the max. Now I have users asking for the data so they can map in a custom google map.

RE: Allow more data points to be displayed on a map

Any solution or workaround to have acceptable performance would be nice. Such as clustering data points when in zoom-out mode and unclustering them when you zoom-in.

RE: Allow more data points to be displayed on a map

I need the ability to either map data points into the 100's of thousands across the US or the ability to layer the map and search within a multipolygon area. If I could break it down into a smaller geographic section (State -> County -> Census Tract -> Census Block) and combine those layers with a layer of the data points, perhaps I could get it down to 2500 without having to create a report per Census Block.

This is important feature for us to go ahead.
