Is there some list of the administrative regions that Sense recognises?

Hi,

I'm trying to plot information on a map of my country (Ireland) but it doesn't recognise the county Dublin as a county to put on the map (see attached image). This seems odd as it's the county where the capital is located. It may be fairly common for Co.Dublin to be broken into different administrative regions in applications such as this (Dublin North, Dublin South) for example. 

My problem is I can't seem to find whatever list Sense works off and therefore have no idea what to change 'Dublin' to in my dataset so it can be plotted. 

 

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

South Dublin is one region, I'm not 100% sure of the others, but you are on the right track as it is some sort of administrative areas, i think Fingal is another.

There is a way to see the list of subdivisions in sense but I dont have it in front of me and dont recall it now.

 

Edit, its South Dublin, Fingal, Dublin City and Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown

In the Qlik folder you should have a hidden folder \Qlik\DataPrepService\src\geo with all csv/qvd containing geo information.

Hi thanks for your reply,

 

I actually don't have that hidden folder in my file structure for some reason. Is it possible that you can share it with me?

Oh amazing. Thanks so much. Out of curiosity where did you find the list?

 

I have a lot of manual mapping ahead of me it seems.

Local government gives the official divisions.
I couldn't find the divisions in the geo folder.


We have just used a map for Dublin to South Dublin for display purposes as its sufficient for our purposes

This has been a great help thanks very much. It's interesting that they choose to subdivide Dublin but yet Cork County and Cork city are deemed the same administrative region. Doesn't seem to be a very consistent approach.

 

Thanks again

They are different, Both Cork City and Galway City are both in there separate, just small areas so easily overlooked. An easier way to see those blanks would be useful!
