Labeling names to geopoints


For a client ,I need to plot the bus locations and the stops of the busses on the map in Qlik Sense 2018 april release.

I did that, by using the gps long and latitude info.

But when you hover over the datapoints you see the Geocode instead of the names of the buslocations?

How can I label the bus locations with the right names? I need to do the same with the bus ids.

I searched online but so far I have not found an answer.

Thanks in advance,

Hi Liesbeth,

In your layer in the map there are two sections used for this.

Within the "Data" section you use the field/dimension that is the name of the location


Within the "location" section you use the field(s)/dimension(s) that is for the position


And the tooltip will then show what is in the data section
