Scattermapbox marker with no fill

I have a mapbox plot in which i am plotting some markers, i want to plot markers with zero fill and i want to make it look like a circle without fill ,something like below

But i am not sure how to achieve this. ScatterMapbox has any options for this? Any help would be appreciated

I have actually tried with setting symbol but it did not work either.

@rasika Your image represents a marker_symbol = 'circle-open' that is an attribute of a go.Scatter trace. The marker symbols for go.Scattermapbox are available here To use one of these symbols, hover the mouse over its image
and copy only it’s name, not the int value at its end, because it represent the image pixel width.

I couldn’t find a circle like your one, but you can check it again, to be sure.

Below is an example with symbol listed as `college-15.svg’.

import plotly.graph_objects as go

fig = go.Figure(go.Scattermapbox(
        marker=dict(symbol ="college", size=20)


For larger sizes, the images looks blurred :frowning:

Do you need a size >20?

Yes and also the colors are not getting applied. :frowning:

i have more than 10 data for same lat long, so i want to display them all in one… what i thought was to have multiple open circles one over the other with different sizes and colors so that i could see them all at once… Any other idea you have?

I had the same issue and never found a solution with scattermapbox. I am curious to know if it is possible though.

@Emil nope, ended up using normal maps and it is not satisfactory :face_with_head_bandage:
