2676310 - Story with geo-map loading slowly in SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC)


  • It takes approximately 80 seconds to get a geo-map loaded.
  • The import data model contains around 5 Million rows.


SAP Analytics Cloud 2018.12.6

Reproducing the Issue

Open a Story and notice that it takes more than one minute until the geo map is loaded.


Performance issues are expected when using a large number of data points (greater than 20K points).


  • The behavior is by design.
  • Best practices for geo maps in SAC with large amounts of data:
    • For the bubble layer, clustering is enabled when there is more than 5K points by default.
      • This is because that rendering more than 5K points takes a long time.
      • It is recommended to cluster data or filter/zoom to reduce the number of points shown in the map extent.
    • As a workaround choropleth layer can be used, which aggregates the data points according to regions (Country, State, etc.).
    • The maximum number of points can be rendered on a geo map is 20K.
      • If the map contains more than 20K points, it is not possible to see all points in a non-clustered bubble layer.
