Hi Jothy,

by default if you have information about a point (so Latitude and Longitude) you won't be able to plot an area.

To do that you need to load in the script a KML or something with the same info.

Take a look at this blog post: World Mapping File For Qlik Sense Maps (KML Shape and Point)

I found it very usefull in the past, as it gives a QVD with both point and area info (at a country level), that will let you plot an area layer in the map.

If you need something more detailed, you could make your own KML (take a look here Create a KML polygon shape file manually and use it in Qlik Sense) or take a look at Qlik's GeoAnalytics

I hope this helps you

Riccardo
