a bug in v12.3 and v12.3.1

I'm trying to apply some styling to GeoPositions

    GeoPosition[{RandomReal[{0, 90}], RandomReal[{-180, 180}]}], 
    ColorData[98, 3]]}, {Style[
    GeoPosition[{RandomReal[{0, 90}], RandomReal[{-180, 180}]}], 

and it seems no effect

enter image description here

So how to apply custom styling to the two points?

I'm using v12.3.1.

  • $\begingroup$ To me, this looks like a bug in the 12.3 (or lower). For example, none of the two solutions from this question work in version 12.3.0. $\endgroup$

This looks like a bug, mentioned in another Wolfram community post as well.

The simplest workaround, I think, is to use two separate GeoListPlot:

p1 = GeoPosition[{RandomReal[{0, 90}], RandomReal[{-180, 180}]}];
p2 = GeoPosition[{RandomReal[{0, 90}], RandomReal[{-180, 180}]}];

 GeoListPlot[{p1}, PlotStyle -> {ColorData[98, 3]}], 
 GeoListPlot[{p2}, PlotStyle -> {Red}]


  • $\begingroup$ Thanks for the workaround! Seems the only workaround for now. slightly disappointed by this bug. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ I have tried several ways of providing different styles, but in every case it looked like GeoListPlot didn't traverse the style array, but instead used only the last style from the list. $\endgroup$
