Map Chart - Enable overlapping points to be exploded out on marking

When mapping data that is located on the same GPS Coordinates and sizing by a column, there are instances where points maybe overlapping.


While jittering is available in Spotfire, it may result in data being mapped in an illogical area (such as in the ocean).


Is it possible that if I use a lasso selection, that I can enable the points to be exploded/expanded out into its own section? This would allow the users to then hover each shape to see the corresponding details and tooltip.


Attached is an example of overlapping shapes and a desired state with the shapes split out in a black box.
