Map Visualization Options for a Custom Background Image



I am looking to display 1-2 variables on a map visualization that utilizes a custom background image.  I have tried the Synoptic Panel Viz, it is great, but does not quite fit our needs.  Are there any options that have similar features to bubble mapping that would allow specific placement of points that can be altered in size and color based on data trends? 


Best regards,

Yes, I would also like this as well.  Synoptic panel works well for a thematic map.  I want to show points and paths on a floor plan, however.  You can use an image as the background for a scatterplot, but the maximum number of points is too low, among other issues.


I like the integration of esri, but it is still in preview and needs to mature.  


It is disappointing there are not better options.
