    KML area display on Qlik Sense


      I have loaded the script below:



          "Density Per Sq Mile",

          geomakepoint (Lat, Long)

      FROM xxx



          map.Name as name,

          map.Point as point,

          map.Area as area

      FROM [lib://IDN US/map.kml]

      (kml, Table is [map/cb_2013_us_cbsa_20m]);


      When I drag and drop "area it tells me: the action you are attempting cannot be applied to this visualization.

      Also, when I use GeoAggrGeometry(area) as area it does not let me load since the expression is invalid!


      Any Help?

          When you try "Add Dimension" to the map object you get this error? 


          If yes, there should be a problem with the file. Corrupt or something. Try to recreate it.

              I guess my file is working fine since I uploaded the KML file on Google map and it worked. Also, when I loaded the KML file, Qlik Sense showed me the tables of data for Area, point, and name. Besides, the file is from US Census.

              So basically, I have an area on my map which shows counties in a KML file. Besides, I have data points in a separate file that I want to show on the same map.

              I did an experiment and first added the are as a layer and it worked fine. After I wanted to add data points with geomake point (lat, long) it gave me the same error.

              Hi Milad,


              It may be your version of Qlik Sense? I am using the latest release (1.1.0).


              I just found a file with the same name as yours (cb_2013_us_cbsa_20m) and it imported fine and I was able to create a map using the Area data.


              I have attached the qvf for reference.


              Hope this helps.

                  Thanks Rod,


                  My Qliksense version is 1.1.0

                  I did some more experiments. So I am able to my my are, but I cannot add my geographical points on it. So basically I have 2 sets of data:

                  1. My data points with Long and Lat ( I integrated them by Geomakepoint (Lat, Long) as Geo)

                  2. My KML file that has area on map


                  I want to have both area and data points (1470 points) on the same map.

                  When I first add Area as a layer to map, I can add the points, but it does not show me locations for it. The map remains the same as only showing the area.

                  Besides, when I first add points as dimension. It does not let me to add a layer (Area).

                  What should I do?
