Qlik Geo Analytics Connector - Binning

Hi All,

I am new to Qlik Geo Analytics and recently figured out about Qlik geo connectors.

I am using a sample Excel table for Geo data and connecting to Qlik connector and loaded a auto genrated table [RH0_5W0_75Grid Table].

once the fields are auto generated in the respective table, in the front end which fields should be used to get the Rectangular binning.

Any suggestions please and what is the real use of this connectors? What way it can be utilized?

.Regards,

Re: Qlik Geo Analytics Connector - Binning

Hi,

Binning operation creates an hexagonal or rectangular area layer by clustering points together. Binning is used to group points together, to create a overview layer.

For more info check out the "Binning" examples at

Qlik Sense Guides & Examples « bi.idevio.com‌ and

Guides & Examples « bi.idevio.com

In your example. create an area layer and select "RH0_5W0_75" as the dimension.

Thanks,

Patric

Hi Patric,

Still, after adding RH_* as a dimension, I am getting an error message as "Error adding Polygon feature".

I am using India states. is it because Indian states are not added still in connector operation?

NOTE : But I am getting Indian state names on normal Area Map. Binning error.png

Hi,

That's strange, the Binning operation should be available in all versions.

The version is visible when making the connection:
