KML files for Germany, Austria, Switzerland (County, District Level)


KML files for Germany, Austria, Switzerland (County, District Level)

The following KML files have been successfully tested to work with Qlik Sense 1.0 mapping object. The polygones are not too complex but yet fine enough.

Level 1 = Bundesland / Kanton

Level 2-3 = Bezirk (District)

There is now a new combined KML in this ZIP, which has all 3 Countries (DE, CH, AT) on Kanton/Bundesland Level (Level1), and Liechtenstein. There is a translation table for the used codes into German labels as well.

  • Germany divisions.Level 2.kml

Cool, any chance you have a full UK one too? Thanks :-)


There's always a chance ;-)

I looked up http://www.gadm.org/download for .kmz files, which I converted to .kml using Google Earth, and I looked up http://geocommons.com , where I pulled down this map: http://geocommons.com/overlays/116292.kml - this works fine, it is UK (with Scottland ) but without Northern Ireland.

The problem with county boundaries in the UK is that they change every few years

Great stuff Christof.  I shall look to include into a demo app I'm building internally here.  Previous attempts in Qlikview always left us without Scotland and Wales, when drilling to a county level

As long as it looks roughly OK, with minimal annual maintenance then at least I've got something!

Great map! Do you have created the kml files on your own? Or do you have used an open source file?

Not applicable


Do you have the KML or KMZ file from Europe?

Not applicable

Sorry, I do not.


Is it somehow possible to use these KML-files with IdevioMap5 & Area Layer in QlikView?
