Hide Latitude, Longitude in Geo Map Properties

I want to show the location of our users on a Geo Map, so I set their latitude, longitude as Metric in the Geo Map. But I don't want to show their exact address due to privacy reasons. Is there a possibility to prevent showing it in the mouse over mode?

 

Cheers!

Daniel

Hi Daniel,

 

One workaround for this would be to put a transparent rectangle shape over the Geo Map. That way, viewers cannot see the information on mouse-over.

Hi Dave, thank you so much! Perfect workaround! However, it would be great to find some new functionality in the geo map style settings.

Did you ever find a better solution to this than the transparent box?
