QlikSense mapping without lat and long

Hi everyone,

I'm trying to complete a project which requires heat mapping. I was just wandering if anyone new if Qlik Sense had functionality that will allow you to create a map with just the address of a location, as I don't have the latitude or longitude points.

Regards,

Holly

Re: QlikSense mapping without lat and long

Hello,

You can try geocoding via Google APIs or mapquestapi (.com).

They provide web service I guess.

I have a working example but it's a property of QlikMaps so not sure if I can share. They are capable of doing it using the both of the above though.

Supposing you are from an English-speaking country the address system must be neat (it is a mess in Turkey), so I bet it will work.

Thanks Serhan, that is very helpful. Perhaps I didn't word that well to save going in to too much detail, just really needed to know whether QlikSense could pick up addresses as I do not have the lat and long values. I need to pinpoint certain areas and overlaying other data points as well.

Many thanks,

Holly
