Clickable Image - is this possible with Power Apps?

I am not sure what you would call this.

I want to display a simple map of a warehouse & have the users click on various locations using the map to get data on various locations.

This would not be a Google Maps or Bing Maps. Just a Jpeg.

Is it even possible with Power Apps?

I would suggest the better approach is to use Power BI with a Synoptic Panel.  The user could click on an area of the warehouse in a Power BI dashboard and have the data show on the screen.

Thank you @mdevaney 

 

That looks like an expensive option.

Thanks @mdevaney  - Synoptic Panel looks like an interesting tool that I've not seen before.

@stapes - the way I would do this would be to apply the "Gallery - TemplateSize 0" trick. It's a bit tricky to describe but if you follow @ericonline's post here, you can see the technique that Eric uses to add clickable regions to map of US states.

@stapes 
Synoptic panel is free to include in a Power BI dashboard.  Did you find some additional costs elsewhere?

Thanks. I am going to play with this one.

Here is my first prototype:

and on selection, a simple popup (for now)

Warehouse App - Popup.png

I showed this to the users, and the first thing they asked for is a means to add new waypoints!

Thanks for your help.

Thanks for the update @stapes - that looks fantastic!

I've created a floor map based on your video (kudos for that, great trick), using the DisplayedWidth, OriginalWidth properties of the map image to make it responsive. It works like a charm as the prototype (with 10-15 desks), however, we tried yesterday with the final number of desks (140), and with the same settings, only a few goes to the right place, the rest is off by sometimes 30-40 pixels. 

Have you tried it with more waypoints?

 

@stapes: I used an X and Y slider to allow the users / admins to create new waypoints. According to my co-worker it's an Etch A Sketch for the workplace. 😀
