Create a Basic Polygon Map

A Polygon Map places geographical shapes on a map.

Create the QlikMaps Object

Click the edit button and drag the QlikMaps Chart object to the sheet.

Open the Object Editor

To edit the QlikMaps object, click the space between the map and the border at the top of the map.

Edit the Feature Layer

Select layer 1 under the feature layer and select polygon under dimension type.


Polygon Dimension

Select a value from the drop-down that represents the dimension being plotted.

Polygon Boundaries

QlikMaps will attempt to auto-detect the boundary field associated with the chosen dimension.

If QlikMaps cannot auto-detect the boundary field, the boundary drop-down will appear. Select the correct field from the drop-down.

Advanced Features

After building a basic polygon map, additional modifications are possible. See below for additional help.
