How to create point map with two measure layers with Qlik sense?

I would like to create a point map to show the sum of population and sum of income at each US city.

I use  the following:

"GeoMakePoint(Latitude, Longitude) as Location" to create a city point map

"sum(Population )"  as measure to show total population of each city.

However, how could also add "sum(Income)"  as measure to show total income of each city at the same time on the same map?

Thanks for your help!

Hi There,


I don't think we can use two measures in Qlik map, however try replicating into two maps one to show sum of population and the other one to show sum of income.


Hope it helps


Thanks

Hi karthikeyan, thanks for your help!

The requirement is to use ONLY one map. When we put the computer mouse on top of the cities at the map, we can review city name, sum(Population )"  and "sum(Income)" of that city.

When I put "sum(Income)" to the Color and Legend expression part, it could distinguish the Income, but still can not show Income when I put the computer mouse on top of the cities at the map.

Any suggestion is appreciated!

Hi,

like Karthikeyan mentioned, it is not possible to create two layers for the default map in Sense at the moment.

You can check the existing extensions on GitHub and QlikBranch if one fits your requirements or if possible you can create your own extension to use two layers in a single map extension.

Check for example ESRI, leaflet or GoogleMaps extension.

Hi Ronny, thanks so much for your help!

There is no multi-layer extension at Qlik branch now. I will look through GitHub. Multi-layer is common feature for map based visualization, and multi-layer is available from other BI tools, such as Tableau. I am wondering why Qlik sense does not support multi-layer maps now.
