I have absolutely no idea if this is the right place to ask this question but here goes anyway...


I'm looking for a layer that helps me visualize earthquakes not only by magnitude but also by depth.


I created this sample some few years ago using Power BI - It's not in English but you'll probably get the drill.
(see here: https://app.powerbi.com/view?r=eyJrIjoiNjliYjgxZDMtODc0ZC00MTEyLWE1NGUtZWRlNzcwODM2M2FjIiwidCI6IjQwM... ) 

I'm using MapBox here but I'd like to see what is possible for the ever growing Azure Map which is a visual within the visualization family of Power BI

Now using only Azure Maps in Power BI the closest I've got to showing the depth is using bar charts instead of bubbles but the problem is obviously that that the bars go up when they really should go down. Adding negative values just stops at zero so no point changing the values.


I'm now looking for some kind of a layer that I can use and map the depth values accordingly but I'm totally lost on how to do that and of course I'm also missing the magnitude measure so this really is a question of a 3D rendered visual that takes into account the magnitude of the earthquake and also depth by latitude and longitude.

I've looked at Mapbox and Arcgis also but with no luck.

Any help appreciated!

@Yggdrasill If you go into the general settings section of the visual, you will see there is an option to show negative values. When turned on, it's absolute value is used for relative scaling of sizes, but the popup will still display the correct negative value when hovered.
