Non-unique postal codes in a map with multiple countries

Hello,

As you might know, Qlik Sense can detect postal codes in its map object. There seems to be a problem when you want to show the postal areas of multiple countries at the same time: the non-unique ones don't seem to render. It works fine with only one country specified in the Locations tab (see attached pic, there should be a postal area displayed below the points).

Is there a way to display all the postal areas without using KML-files?

See attachment for a simple example.

PS. This app uses the september version of Qlik Sense Desktop.

Re: Non-unique postal codes in a map with multiple countries

The problem is that you have a dimensional value that is the same for both countries, then Sense won't know in which country to draw the Zip code.

If you change the dimensional value under Data to a country and postal code unique value, like this for example: =Postalcode & ', ' & Country and set the Country under Location to Country it works.

Re: Non-unique postal codes in a map with multiple countries

Hi,

I'm plotting maps for all EU countries, but somehow Qlik Sense only recognized France/Germany/Spain postal codes, but not other countries like UK/Italy......is there a specific format of postal codes that Qlik Sense able to read?

Thanks!
