Qlik Sense Map

Hi, I'm creating a map using Qlik Sense, following some instruction videos on Qlik Sense, but strangely after I load my data with lat and long, I still have no dimensions available to create the map when I click the "Add Dimension" button. Please see a screen shot that I added here.

What did I miss here? Thanks for help!

Loading map data

To be able to create a map visualization, you need access to geographical data that connects to the data in your app. Geographical data comes in the form of either:

  • geopoint data (latitude, longitude) for a single location, such as a city
  • area data (polygons of geopoints) to represent regions or countries

When you use Add data, Qlik Sense will try to recognize if your data contains cities or countries. If successful, a new field containing geographical information is created automatically.

When using Add data, you must select Prepare data instead of Load data and finish. If you select Load data and finish, the geographical data is not detected and the new field containing geographical information is not created.
