Unique Visitors on the
Visitors Map is only possible when the "day" period is selected.
If any other period (in this example, a week)is applied then unique visits is no longer an option to be displayed:
I think this should at least be configurable, and probably respect the config as described here https://matomo.org/faq/how-to/faq_113/
For completeness we are using Matomo v3.13.1
Thanks for creating the issue 👍
I guess the reason is, that we are actually not calculating the exact unique visitors for the location reports. For periods bigger than day, there is only the sum of unique daily visitors, which is not the same. Not sure if we should show that as unique visitors 🤔

If I understand correctly, you mean the same "unique visitor" may visit on different days in the period and therefore should only count once for the period? In which case, I see what you mean - a bit tricky!
But is this not the same conundrum that has been solved and implemented in other parts of matomo that do show unique visits for different time periods? (and is configured by
Right, we do that processing for some other reports. But that means we can't (only) simply combine the reports already generated for day period, but would need to completely process all raw log data for the bigger periods. Depending on the amount of data tracked, that can be quite a resource killer...
BTW thanks for the attention and replies to this issue :-)
Yes, I understand that it can be quite a resource killer and may take a long time - but perhaps that is why it should be configurable and users opt-in to it.
