QlikView Geo Analytics Map

Is there a way to layer the LOCATION information on the GeoAnalytics Map? I have data that spans across different continents and countries within them and cities nested within them further. Then, how can you program the map to reflect those different layers? 

For instance, if I zoomed out far enough to see the global map, then I want to see a summary of the data per continent. When I zoom into that continent, I want to see the summary of that data per country. When I zoon into that country I want to see the summary of that data per state and when I zoom into that state per city.

It is possible to use zoom limits and switch layers on and off depending on zoom level. But the best way to handle hierarchal data is to use the drill down principle. Check out this example to build up that using the map:

Thank you for your reply. 

I am using Qlikview and the link you provided is the steps for QlikSense. 

I did find it helpful in creating the multiple layers but creating the drill down is different between these applications. In QlikView I've been able to create a layered map of country, state and city, however, there is no drill down currently. 

Within the layers there is an option that I think has part of what I need to do but I'm not sure how to use it, the navigation is : Layer Options > Restrict Drill Down.

Patric, that worked nicely! Thank you for the link to those examples as well. 

Much appreciated.
