Re: Geo map in qliksense

Hi Deepak

You'll need a list of the objects you want to place on a map and their lat/long coordinates.

Within the load script you'll need to load this list with an identifier and use the function GeoMakePoint(y,x) using the x and y from your list of place names with coordinates. When I have done this I have used applyMap to add a location to each row of data. Stay with me. mapping functions for data vs mapping of data to actual map. I apologise in advance as the work map is used for both.

This is a helpful doc I found just after adding this reply. Has links to some data sets for locations.

World Mapping File For Qlik Sense Maps (KML Shape and Point)

Load script:

MapLocation:

Mapping

LOAD Distinct

     ServiceNam AS HS,

     GeoMakePoint(Y,X) as Location

FROM <your source of coordinates>

//Data load

Load

ApplyMap('MapLocation',EntityName,'<Unknown>') AS Location,

    *;

Load

....

EntityName,

....

From Data source


TAG FIELDS Location WITH $geopoint;      

TAG FIELDS EntityName WITH $geoname;

Then in the app add a map from charts.

Hi Ron,

In April version you don't need to do anything you have described above as it is using location lookups

Hi Lech

When I did a map the raw data didn't have and location information, it was based on hospital names so I needed some way to tell it where they are.

Re: Geo map in qliksense

What i meant is that in your scenario you still need to deliver long and lat (or some sort of coordinates) but you don't need to do GeoMakePoint() or TAG FIELDS anymore.

OK cool, it was a while ago I used this feature. Glad they have taken out that part.
