2982738 - Straight lines are drawn for short distance in Flow Layer of Geo Map in SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC)

Symptom

  • Straight lines are drawn for short distance in Flow Layer of Geo Map in SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC)
  • Is it possible to adjust curvature of those lines for such short distance

Environment

  • SAP Analytics Cloud (Enterprise) 

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Log on to SAC tenant and create a new story.
  2. Insert one Geo Map and then add a Flow Layer on one model containing at least two location dimensions.
  3. From the + Add Location Dimension list under Origin Location, select the dimension to serve as the starting point for the flow you want to visualize.
  4. From the + Add Location Dimension list under Destination Location, select the dimension to serve as the end point for the flow you want to visualize.
  5. Also select some measures for both Flow Color and Flow Size.
  6. Select OK to save all layer settings.
    => Straight lines are drawn for short distance on the map.

Cause

  • The curvature of line in Flow Layer is decided by distance automatically by base map (provided by ESRI).
  • If the distance between origin location and destination location is too short, it is drawn as straight line.
  • In current version, SAC self doesn't have no option to control the curvature of line.

Resolution

  • You can submit one enhancement request for this limitation according to SAP KBA 2424376.
