GeoJSON in QXV Files

Our company is creating a module to export data in QVX format for use in Qlik.  It is our understanding that geospatial data is supporting in a QVX field if written as GeoJSON.  We are currently writing GeoJSON into a QXV_TEXT field.  When this data is loaded into Qlik, it simply treats it as text.  Is there a special field type that we should use for geospatial data in QVX files?

I believe it's the <tag> assigned to the field that identifies it as Geo data. For example, lat/long points created with GeoMakePoint() have a "$geopoint" tag.

Seems this is not supported in QVX.

Not sure if it is supported in QVD. Have you found a solution?

I suppose you could tag the field after you load the QVX.

Yes, that is possible of course. But it would be nice if the file is ready after import, so one wouldn't need to do Geo tagging.
