create area map using only point data (long,lat)

Hi,

Wondering could I use the long,lat data create a area map instead of the point map

here is the dummy data.

first sheet is the County name with the lat and long

and the second one is statistics

I was able to use point map create the map have color represent mean income and the size represent the gini

but could I change this point map to the area map?

do we need more geo data?

Anyone can give me some suggestion?

Thank you!

Regards,

Re: create area map using only point data (long,lat)

Hi,

On Qliksense you can use 2 types of maps:

1. points map (using latitude and longitude)

2. area map (using kml files)

on the latest release, one of the new features is the new Map Object on which you can create a Multi layer map, using for example Points map and Area map on the same Object simultaneously.

Re: create area map using only point data (long,lat)

so what you mean is I need to fine KML file?

this link is for the KML file

but if I do not have that file then I, can not? right?
