Re: QS April 2018 - Map object not able to pick Brooklyn, NY
This happens because the Qlik location database contains county areas but not the boroughs. Also there are more points than areas, Brooklyn exists as a point but not as an area in the db. In the case with NYC the counties align with boroughs: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boroughs_of_New_York_City
So for NYC use the county name as the location field in order to plot the areas and or a center point.
