Getting Dimensions from Latitude/Longitude

Is it possible to get dimensions like City, Region, Country from just having latitude/longitude? I

Basically does qlik have this geographical meta data stored like tableau?

Re: Getting Dimensions from Latitude/Longitude

I don't think it's part of the product yet (might be wrong, though), but Qlik announced recently the acquisition of Idevio, so maybe there is more to come soon.

You can access the same sources like Google Maps or OSM that you can use to retrieve Lat/Lon from address to get address from Lat/Lon (reverse geocoding):
