Always show hovertext

Is there a way to make the hover textbox always show? Specifically, I am using Python API for a scattergeo map and would like to make a flat image with all the textbox info showing for each coordinate marker. Thanks in advance.

There is no way to freeze hover labels at the moment.

Alternatively, you can either:

  • add text to scattergeo data points using the text trace attributes (see example figure and python code).
  • or add a paper-referenced annotations to the figure (see example figure and python code). Note that geo trace types do not support data-referenced annotations at the moment.

Thank you so much for the reply. The mode=‘markers+text’ parameter was just what I needed!
