    Qlik Sense Maps - How to force a field to be considered as an area field ?

    Bertrand HERARD

      Hi,

      I'm discovering the new QlikView map object. When I load a KML file, Qlik Sense seems to automatically detect if the geometry field contains points or areas. It's usefull when all is OK.

       

      But the KML load wizard doesn't work on some of my KML. So I used a workaround (the XML wizard).

      I've loaded two fields from my KML (a field name (.Name) and a field with the geometry (.Area). The issue is the Qlik Sense interface seems to recognize my area field as a point field. Is there a way to manually "say" to Qlik Sense : this field contains "Area" not "Points" ?

       

      Regards
