How to plot area chart only using Postal code?

Dear Experts,

I am finding any possibility to plot an area chart using GeoAnalytics using Postal Code. Sadly, I have only City name and postal code. City name data is not so clean i.e, lots of Mis-spelled city name in my data, unlike this Postal code looks good in my data and pre-processable. So I am looking for alternative way to plot area chart using the  Postal code.

I tried using default area chart available in extension tab, Nothing visible in the chart

Please give your valuable inputs. Thanks in advance

Regards,

Mohan.

Hi Mohan,

Yes, postal code can be used to plot areas and points, but the overage, see this document for more information.

Qlik GeoAnalytics Coverage

In general there are more zip code points than areas.

When using postal code, use location options to set country and type or embed the info in the location string:

= postal_code & ',' & country_code & ':XPC'

Thanks,

Hello Patric Nordstrom,

Thanks for your time.

I couldn't find GeoAnalytics Coverage in my connector, please help me to find that feature in my desktop. Also, it will great if you share any example app which will be very useful to understand the feature.

Thank you,

Mohan.
