how to define the location information in drill-down map

Hi there, I would like to ask how we can define the location information in drill-down map in qlik sense?  I uploaded two files, one is like a shape file. there are geo information and ID. The other are ID and name. I linked these two with ID. when i am creating the drill-down dimension, which field i should use? I tried with the name but it looks like it didn't show the correct location information on the map. So how can i make it? If i use the geo field in the shape file, then it will display the location name...Also i uploaded the output layer. but on the map, it said it only shows a limited of data sets. anyone knows why??

Thanks so much!

Hi,

would you be able to attach your geographic files here to make some test ?

otherwise you're using which shapefile ? from where did you get it ?

one last thing,

for the country layer, you attached the same file two times,

did the country layer informations (geographic, id, names etc) come in one file ?

and what is the delimiter here ? how do you split the informations to create your fields ?

hi youssef, thanks for your work.

However, i think this is not the map i want. you can find the actual location information in kml, area column. if you plot the single map you will find the correct map. But when i was creating the drill-down map, i am not sure how to define the location info. Did you define the location as area, in kml? The id or name in csv will not help
