Re: Re: how can create a KML Files ?

As you already have the polygon data in an excel file - you don't need to create a kml file from this, you can simply import this information into Qlik Sense.

I've added a field to the data called "area name" so it could be linked to other data you may have, and then imported it as an .xlsx file.

Then you can tag the polygon with a geo tag, and this will allow Qlik Sense to use this field within the mapping charts.

LOAD

    "area name",

    world.Area

FROM [lib://Desktop/Polygones_FRA.xlsx]

(ooxml, embedded labels, table is Feuil1);

tag fields "world.Area" with $geopolygon;

I've attached a .qvf to show you the final map.

Hi Joshua,

Are you looking for a specific geographic area, or are you wanting to create something custom?

If geographic area - you can check this site out to download different KML levels of continents and countries.

If you are interested you can follow this process to obtain the .kml file:

Let us know

Hi Joshua,

If you want to createa simple KML file, you can use Google Earth for example, http://www.instructables.com/id/Creating-KML-Files-For-Your-Custom-Google-Maps/

It's free and quite simple to use
