GEOcoding in Belgium

Hi Guys,

Could anyone explain or help me why an area layer doesn't works for Belgium, based on Postalcode & BE.

If I choose a bubble layer, the plotting works fine and I get the bubbles for the postal codes.

But it won't work with a area layer. If I change the Country Code from BE to NL.

The postal areas lights up perfectly. So for somehow there's an error for using the area plotting in Belgium??

Re: GEOcoding in Belgium

Hi Guy, unfortunately Belgium postal code areas are not included (center points are though). As of may 2017 the following countries are included with postal code areas: Argentina, Australia, Canada, Denmark, Ecuador, Finland, France, Germany, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Mexico, Netherlands, Norway, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom, United States, Uruguay.

Thanks,

Patric

Re: GEOcoding in Belgium

What happens if you add Belgium as country under the location tab?

Re: GEOcoding in Belgium

Is there any possibility that other countries, specially Belgium, will be added in the next coming period on short term?

Re: GEOcoding in Belgium

Hi Guy,

More countries are coming, it's matter of availability, terms and budget. Belgium is not in near term, I recommend source it separately. It straight forward process to load external area data into QGA with the "Load" operation, followed by an a "Simplify" operation. Check out the Load example:

Re: GEOcoding in Belgium

Hello Patric,

bps

nfortunately I can't open it. Where using QlikView Desktop here. The examples are all for QlikSense.....

Do you've a link to the QlikView example of a little description how to do it?

We've an external GEO dataset of the BE postal codes now, so we would like to set it up for BE now.

Thnx!
