Add Custom Locations to a Map (Report Builder and SSRS)

 

Applies To: SQL Server 2016

After you add a map to a Reporting Services paginated report, you can add your own point locations.

Display properties for all points on a layer are controlled by setting options for the point properties for the layer. For a selected embedded point, you can override the display properties.

When you override the layer display properties for the embedded point, the changes that you make are not reversible.

For more information, see Vary Polygon, Line, and Point Display by Rules and Analytical Data (Report Builder and SSRS).

You can create and modify paginated report definition (.rdl) files in Report Builder and in Report Designer in SQL Server Data Tools. Each authoring environment provides different ways to create, open, and save reports and related items.

  1. On the report design surface, click the map to select it and display the Map pane.

  2. On the toolbar, click Add Layer.

  3. From the drop-down list, click Add Point Layer. A point layer with no points is added to the map. By default, the point layer is ready for embedded points.

  1. On the report design surface, click the map to select it and display the Map pane.

  2. In the Map pane, right-click a point layer that has type Embedded, and then click Add Point. The cursor changes to crosshairs.

  3. To add a point, click a location on the map. An embedded point is added to the selected layer at the location where you click.

  1. Right-click the point, and then click Point Properties. The Map Embedded Point Properties dialog box opens.

  2. Click Override point options for this layer. Multiple property pages appear in the left pane.

  3. Click the pages and set the display properties that you want to apply to this point.
