Qlik sense Geo-analytics Country and City Hierarchy required

Hi,

We are using qlik sense geo-analytics and we want to provide the list of countries and cities hierarchy (used by Qlik Geo-analytics) to our client. We want to create an app where client can search country and respective cities.

We are integrating geo-analytics maps in our web application and, in our portal we have functionality where client has to know that what is the exact city name which qlik is using so that can come on map as bubble.


e.g. There is one city 'Iasi' in Romania country. But that is not appearing on map. We have googled a lot and came to know that google map is using 'Iași' (there is special character in city name) and that is appearing on qlik map as well.


So we just wanted to have easy way to find out what hierarchy qlik is using.



Any suggestions and solution will be appreciated.

Re: Qlik sense Geo-analytics Country and City Hierarchy required

You may want to consider downloading your own polygon and geopoints for the different admin areas in Romania. You can find them at:

www.gadm.org (polygons)

geonames.org (postcodes and geopoints, place names and geopoints)

When you download polygons, choose the file format "kmz". These are compressed kml files. After you download them, change the file extension to "zip" and then unzip them. Change the extension to kml and you can load them into QlikSense using the dataloader.

I hope this helps,

Pam
