# Mark Size on A Map for Longitude and Latitude

I have a data set containing ~30 numbers, each one tied to a longitude and latitude. these numbers range from anywhere between 1 and 944. when i drop these numbers into the size mark section the numbers don't seem to be at a ratio that the size 1 is 944x smaller than the size 944, instead it looks like the size 1 is about 30x smaller than the size 944. The size of the circle on my map appears to be dictated by the relative location of the number on the list vs. the actual number size difference. is there anyway to change this>

Here is a sceen shot of what i'm talking about. as you can see the 170 circle is barely smaller than the 944 even though i'd want the 944 to be about 5.5x bigger.

Can you try finding the difference between your numbers by creating another calculated field and then use that?

i'm not sure how that'd work or what that'd achieve, can you elaborate? thanks for the quick response

What I was suggesting is that since it is not recognizing the actual value size so if you get difference between two values, it may work...I can try if you post workbook. I don't want to create data myself.

Click on the context menu of the Conversions (size) legend and you can adjust the sizes from within there.  That might help.
