    Map - KML - US County

    Joseph Zimolong

      New to Qlik Sense (downloaded the free desktop version this past weekend), but the Map feature is just what we've been looking for.  What I've been trying to accomplish over the past 4 days is figuring out how to import a KML file, for US Counties, that automatically brings in the "name" as :


      Two digit state - county name -  For example, it would bring in name = "NY-Erie"


      Trying to avoid the common issue where you have the same county name all over the country.  Cannot figure out how to come up with a KML file that I can link to with the key of state-county ( NY-Erie ).  Each time I play around with a US Census KML file, it ALWAYS imports area.name = county name

      I am posting this discussion in hopes that someone can point me to a good link/suggestion that will explain how I can "modify" an existing KML file so Qlik Sense will bring in the "name" field as state-county, so I can then link my real estate data to the KML and generate the mapping visuals we've been looking for.


      I hope this question isn't redundant, but I have been at this for several days and keep coming up empty.


      Thank you in advance.
