Map - Zoom Level Selector - Needed

It would be extremely helpful if Tableau had a way for users to control the map zoom level via a Zoom Level Selector.

 

This is needed because clicking with the magnifying glass or lasso isn't exact and there are times when users want to jump to a specific level quickly and then go to another specific level.

Clicking in and out multiple times with the plus and minus sign, till you get to exact right level in painful and inefficient.

 

The Zoom Level Selector, should be able to accept values passed from a custom created parameter's list's list of values.

 

For example:

  • The users want to be able to select 500 miles and Tableau map goes to the 500 miles view.
  • The users want to be able to select 50 miles and Tableau map goes to the 50 miles view.
  • The users want to be able to select 10 miles and Tableau map goes to the 10 miles view.
  • The users want to be able to select 2 miles and Tableau map goes to the 2 miles view.
  • The users want to be able to select 1 miles and Tableau map goes to the 1 miles view.
  • The users want to be able to select 1,000 feet and Tableau map goes to the 1000 feet view.
