I'm using the November 2018 update.
I'm tryinng to build a "Map Chart" with a "Point Layer", which is pretty much bothering me.
Data I have (Global Data from several Countries):
Data I don't have:
What is the Problem:
What is my goal:
All I want to have is a Point Layer with bubbles in the right place.
What do I have to do different?
Just tried it again, nothing has changed.
Here's a picture of what I mean about the Location type, in case you didn't already try changing it.
Also, load your Vendor.PostalCode data as text so it doesn't lose leading zeroes (important in US postal codes).
Load text(Vendor.PostalCode) as Vendor.PostalCode...
If you want to post a sample of your data I can try to create the map.
Let me share some Pictures:
Here the Settings for Zip-Code in the Data Table:
Here some Example Zip-Codes, From this list, the Zip-Codes from "GB & CN"don't work:
If there is anything else I could provide, please let me know.
I think you are doing things correctly, but Qlik's location database doesn't recognize those postal codes. I loaded your examples from Shangai and Sao Paolo into my own app, along with a place in France, and only the French location appeared. At the top of the map there is a message -- see my screenshot.
Qlik provides a little help here (https://help.qlik.com/en-US/sense/February2019/Subsystems/Hub/Content/Sense_Hub/Troubleshooting/trou...).
Take a look at this document:
The April 2019 attachment there talks about what countries are covered for postal codes. (I learned that it has only a few countries covered for postal code AREAS, but more countries for postal code CENTER POINTS. So it's good that you added your postal code dimension to your map as a Point layer.)
Another thing: Make sure you have valid postal codes. I went to https://worldpostalcode.com/brazil/sao-paulo and copied a few codes into my app and they showed up, but the ones I copied from your screenshot do not show up in my map.
Having a similar issue and it's frankly irritating me... did you solve it in the end?
Simple list of country code and city for major european countries
This should be working out of the box, any help/suggestion very much appreciated.
I "solved" it with a workaround... so I'm only partially happy with the result. The GEO Function in Qlik Sense is not strong enough, you need to upgrade to Geo Analytics to get it really solved.
There are different ways, depending on the data you have:
1) Postal Codes have different formats behind. This is how you can solve Luxembourg for example:
if(Country='LU','L-' & PostalCode ) // Luxemburg postal codes starts with L-
2) or use the expression below & administrative area and watch this Video: https://community.qlik.com/t5/Qlik-Design-Blog/Qlik-Sense-Maps-Improving-Location-Accuracy-Video/ba-...
3) Map the cities manually, example for UK:
pick(match(City,'Brimscombe, Stroud Glos','Cheshire','Cringleford, Norwich','Essex')+1,
City,'Brimscombe', 'Chester', 'Cringleford', 'Chelmsford'))
You can also combine them with an =if(...
As said... Workarounds... and no satisfying solution...
Hope this helps.
