How to create multiple-layers map with Qlik Sense?

I would like to create a map containing both point layer (city) and polygon layer (state) with Qlik Sense. Could you please give any suggestion? Thanks!

Finally, we can not do it with the current Qlik out of box map object.

However, multilayer map is really needed for analysis and visualization.

Re: How to create multiple-layers map with Qlik Sense?

Hi,

for the point map i am attaching a qvw

that generates coordinates,

you will need to do:

For Point Map:

1. paset the list of countries\addresses to the qvw script and than reload it,

than export this data to excel (if it didn't gave you all the coordinates just export what you got, and keep reloading,

eventually you will gate all of the coordinates).

2. than load this excel to your modle with the proper name for the connection.

3. make a geokey dimension geokey(longitude,latitude).

4. drag your field (countries\addresses) to the map object.

For Area\Layer Map:

See this KML US and World Map and Sample Data

Hi Ido, Thanks so much for your help!

For point map, I know how to use GeoMakePoint(Latitude, Longitude) to get point map with Qlik Sense.

For polygon map, I know how to use KML file to get polygon map with Qlik Sense.

I would like to create a map with both point layer and polygon layer with Qlik Sense. Could you please give any suggestion?

Hi,

Multiple layers is not possible with the standard map in Sense, you need an extension.

I recommend IdevioMaps, which can can do that and much more, check out the demos at QlikMarket.

(Disclaimer, I work for Idevio)

Thanks,

Patric Nordström

Is IdevioMaps license free? Or is it a paid license?

Re: How to create multiple-layers map with Qlik Sense?

It seems Qlik Sense itself does not support multi-layers maps right now. Walking around solution may be to use a commercial extension, such as IdevioMaps , QlikMaps , GeoQlik. Visualization data with map is population in BI tools, such as SAP Lumira, Tableau. Hopefully Qlik Sense has more map features.

Hi,

You will have to go with an extension object to achieve this. Make use of D3.js to achieve this, or even google maps api should help.

Thanks,
