Allow more data points to be displayed on a map
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
This is an embarrassingly low number of points to display, renders Power BI almost unusable for point data when compared to others.

I had the similar issue I tried to plot point Brazilian cities around 5k points but there is a limit it can plot just 3500 maximum point. It's frustraction. I hope it will be improve in the future update.

Work in Telco and I've often been asked to plot +2,5 million Lat / Long.
Would not care about performance loss if it's an options, even if just on the desktop.
Currently using Python or R to plot the data instead.
I work in the water industry in Scotland, and as we are starting out in PowerBI this has become an issue for us too.

we as well need this fixed.
We need more than this, 2500 is far too little.
I plotted 60k counties easily in Tableau using a filled map, but found it impossible to do in Power BI. It could be done in R, but didn't meet the request for a filled map. Please increase the data point limit.
I administer electronic equipment inventories in all 254 counties in the State of Texas. I prepare an analysis for each county to determine quantities needed in the counties. I also need to know status and location. I have a data sheet that lists the location of every unit across the state. I want to know if I can build individual county maps that contain the physical location and quanties at those locations.
We desperately need this, 2500 is far too little.
This is absolutely vital, especially as it is marketed to handle big data.. I work with survey data across the Great Barrier Reef, we have in excess of 50,000 records we need to map. OUr agency will have to switch platforms if not adressed

This is a critical issue for my company. Maybe refresh when zooming to continuously show the maximum in the new window?

hello, I want to emphasize that the total amount of data points we can view in maps is much too low. I'm monitoring learning progress of students worldwide. As data is becoming more and more important to improve our businesses for lager markets data limitations are slowing us down. Therefore I think 2500 is indead a minimum. We just started and have already 3000 records we think we need 50.0000 :-)

This is a critical feature for many of us, and I could see myself abandoning use of the software altogether if this limitation is not addressed.
Any update on this? I can't even make a territory map based on US counties because it exceeds the limit.
Vijay Bala commented
Any updates on this ?
This has been under review for almost 2 years. Any status on updating it?

With this restriction Power BI is just a Small Data tool.
There should be no limit at all for maps and scatterplots. Otherwise they are useless.
The easiest workaround should be a checkbox for the limit of 3500 (shut off by accepting performance loss).
And that this feature is now requested for 2 years doesn't sound very promessing for soon changes :-(
Hopefully you guys adjust this soon. Until this we use the competitor tool.
Steve Little commented
Agreed. I could use 10,000 minimum
It will be good to have as this is limiting the effectiveness of power bi at the moment.

Hi, if not all the points can be displayed it would be nice to get a warning so people will not think their source is not reliable.
