Scatter chart, duplicate values. How to show them?



I have a scatter chart which holds coordinates X and Y, on it i have unique items with their own ID's i'd like to show. However, if two different items have the same X and Y it only shows one of them. Is there any way to avoid this problem and show both of the items?


Screenshot of the chart and its table:


Thank you in advance

It's best to use color saturation for showing density of points. The density would be correlated with the number of points at the location of interest.

Also, in R there are plots that add random jitter to points that are at the same location. I don't think this is available in PBI visuals but you could use R or Python to create such jittering plots.

So like one on top of the other but smaller or like the circle split down the middle or?

A split circle would be great if it'd still split it in case of there being more(5,6....) of the same values.

How about using size or doing expression based formatting, using count of rows with same X and Y value?

I tried out the size option and it seems to fix the problem and actually add some nice functionality. Thanks a lot and sorry for the problem.
