GeoAnalytics Map

The GeoAnalytics Map chart provides a map background for Layer charts that might contain Qlik Sense data. The layers are presented on top of the map chart and not in their own space on the sheet. It is the layers that uses dimensions and measures from the Qlik Sense data, not the map chart.

Map Settings

At the top there is a link to documentation for GeoAnalytics for Qlik Sense, including this document.
PropertyUseDescription
Server URLdefault:https://maps.qlikcloud.com URL to Qlik GeoAnalytics server. When running a standard installation with maps hosted by Qlik, this need not be changed. It will use https if the page uses https otherwise http. You need to reload the app after changing this value.
Map IDrequired Id of this map. Use this value in layers to connect them to this map.
Base Mapdefault:default The map background to use. Always available in default installation are:
  • default - the standard, OSM based map background, expects coordinates in WGS-84, displayed projection is Mercator
  • default server rendered - as default but server rendered, can be more efficient on some devices
  • plain - a plain, OSM based map background, with pale colors and few details, expects coordinates in WGS-84, displayed projection is Mercator
  • empty (WGS-84) - when no map background is wanted, expects coordinates in WGS-84, displayed projection is Mercator
  • empty (undefined meters) - when no map background is wanted, expects coordinates in a user defined meter based coordinate system
Show Labelsdefault:checked When unchecked the labels in client rendered base maps are turned off.
Zoom to Selectiondefault:checked When checked, the maps zooms to the objects in the selection when the selection changes.
Auto Select Visibledefault:unchecked When checked, zooming and panning will change selection based on what is shown on the map. This feature only works if the SpatialIndex operation from the GeoAnalytics connector has been applied to the data displayed. See the GeoAnalytics connector documentation for more information.

Appearance: General

PropertyUseDescription
Show titlesdefault:On Standard Sense title properties.

Appearance: Interaction and Controls

PropertyUseDescription
Allow Panningdefault:checked When checked the map can be panned by dragging the map.
Allow Zoomingdefault:checked When checked the map can be zoomed by mouse wheel and pinch.
Zoom Limitsdefault: Inner 1.2, Outer 80000 Zooming in/out stops at these inner / outer resolutions, defined in meters/pixel. Turn on "Show Debug Info" under Debug to see the current resolution. There are also limits in the different base maps that applies.
Select Typedefault:lasso Specifies how multi-select of values in the currently selectable layer is done. Single select is done by right click/long click.
  • none - multi-select disabled
  • box - select by dragging corners of a rectangle
  • circle - select by dragging from center and out in a circle
  • lasso - select by drawing the perimeter of an area
Show Scale Bardefault:checked When checked the scale bar is displayed in the bottom left corner.
Show Layer Controldefault:unchecked When checked, a button is displayed in the upper right corner which opens a layer list where layers can be turned on or off.
Show Zoom Controlsdefault:unchecked When checked a zoom in and a zoom out button are available at the map.
Show Error Messagesdefault:checked When checked a small error symbol appears at the top of the map when there is an error or warning. Clicking the symbol displays the errors. The error list is cleared at every new selection.
Log Leveldefault:warning Here the amount of information that should be logged in the error window can be specified.

Bubble Layer

A Bubble Layer displays symbols (circles, other shapes or symbols from an URL) and optionally labels at an GeoAnalytics Map. Size and color can be controlled by measures, labels and pop-up information by expressions. The position can be specified either as location ids (common names such as country codes, state codes, city names, postal codes etc) or latitude, longitude values.

ID

The dimension represents an identity of the the point. It can also be used as the location id, see "Location Options".

Location, Size

These are the measures. When coordinates are available specify measures like this:
  • latitude - the latitude of the point (WGS 84)
  • longitude - the longitude of the point (WGS 84)
  • size - a numeric measure that controls size, by default the size is auto scaled between the lowest and highest value
When location IDs are available specify measures like this:
  • Location ID - an identifier that can be used for looking up a location (see Location Options)
  • size - a numeric measure that controls size, by default the size is auto scaled between the lowest and highest value

Layer Options

PropertyUseDescription
Map IDdefault:<the most recent map of the sheet> Specify this value when there is more than one map on a sheet to tell which map to display the layer on. See Map Id in Map Settings of the Map to get the right one.
Maximum Number of Objectsdefault:1000 To display more than a thousand object increase this value. There will be a warning if there are more objects to display.
Calculation Conditionrequired To limit when the layer is shown you can enter a caluclation condition as an expression. The layer is calculated/shown only when the expression is fulfilled.
Calculation Condition Messagerequired A custom error message that will be displayed in the layers legend if the calculation condition is not fulfilled. Only visible if a calculation condition has been entered.
Zoom Limitdefault:Min 0, Max 160000 The layer will not be displayed when zoomed further in/out than these values. Check "Map.Debug.Show debug info" to see current resolution. The resolution is defined as meters per pixel, i.e. the number of meters each pixel covers.
Restrict Drill Downdefault:0-16 When the dimension is a drill down group it is possible to restrict the layer to be active only for a single level or multiple levels. This makes it easy to create different layers that are active in the different levels of the drill down. The top level is number 0. The range selected specifies at what levels the layer should be visible.
Include in Auto Zoomdefault:Yes Determines if the layer should be included when calculating area to zoom to when automatically zooming to selections.
Disable when Inactivedefault:Unchecked We recommend using Calculation Condition instead of this option when possible since it gives better results. Checking this sets the dimension to a constant value while non-visible/disabled/inactive in order to decrease the amount of data transferred between Qliks Engine and the frontend.
Draw Orderdefault:Auto Defines how the layer should be drawn compared to other layers, which ones should be drawn on top of each other.
Draw Order Categorydefault:<Layer specific> The layers are by default drawn after the base map and the base map labels in the order Geodata Layers, Area Layers, Heatmap Layers, Line Layers, Bubble Layers. To make this layer draw in another category, adjust this value. This property is only visible when "Draw Order" is set to "Custom".
Draw Order Adjustmentdefault:0 Increasing this value makes the layer draw later, i.e. be more visible in the category. Allowed values are in the range -10 to 10. If you want the layer to be on top of other layers in the same category increase this value, if you want it to be overdrawn by other layers in the category decrease it. This property is only visible when "Draw Order" is set to "Custom".

Location Options

Location information is either specified as longitude, latitude pairs, as identities that are looked up in an external service or as sense geometries. When the term "Location ID" is used below it means it can be a sense geometry or an identity looked up else where. When it starts with a "[" it is assumed to be a geometry in a string ([long,lat] is a point, [[long1,lat1],[long2,lat2],...] is a line, [[[long1,lat1],[long2,lat2],...]] is a multi-line or a polygon with multiple rings, [[[[long1,lat1],[long2,lat2],...]]] is a multi-polygon but also accepted as a multi-line). The external service can be something as simple as a geometry file or a more complex server based service. The server based services provide a syntax for specifying more information on identities to minimize false hits. For instance containing areas and types of features can be specified. The following is the city Hamburg in Germany:
Hamburg,DE
and this is Hamburg in Sweden:
Hamburg,SE
If you actually wanted the first order administrative area in Germany named Hamburg you also need to specify a type:
Hamburg:AADM1,DE
You can also specify multiple areas when needed. For instance in USA there are many Hamburg. To get the one in Arkansas specify:
Hamburg,AR,US
See Geometry Service Specification for more information on syntax to use. When there are unresolved names a warning is displayed in the upper left corner of the map.
PropertyUseDescription
Location Sourcedefault:Auto Where location information comes from.
  • Auto - Automatic determination of location source based on available measures and their types.
  • Latitude, Longitude measures - Latitude and longitude values are provided in first two measures. For lines also the third and fourth measures are used as end point. This option is only available for point geometries (including start and end points for lines).
  • Dimension - The dimension is the location id. This option is only available for point geometries (not lines or areas).
  • Measure - The first measure is the location id. For lines there are two measure alternatives; One for a single location id for the entire polyline and one for using the first measure for the start point and the second for the end point.
Location Servicedefault:different for different types of geometries URL to the location service. Either a server based service or a file as specified in "Location Service Type". An expression is accepted which makes it possible to change source dynamically. This can be used for switching file in different drill down levels for instance. Note that when a file is loaded, it is always loaded via the GeoAnalytics server (as a proxy) to avoid javascript restrictions on cross-origin loading.
Location Service Typedefault:Geometry service The type of service used for location ID lookup.
Source Key Attributeoptional The attribute in a geometry file to use as the location ID. This field is only visible when a file based geometry service is selected.
Advanced Locationdefault:false The advanced location toggle controls whether to use Advanced Loction, in essence whether to use Location ID Suffix or to use Country and Type.
Countrydefault:any The Country dropdown can be used to narrow down a lookup of a location id. Using Country is a simplified way of using Location ID Suffix (see below).
Typedefault:any The Type dropdown can be used to narrow down a lookup of a location id. Using Country is a simplified way of using Location ID Suffix (see below).
Location ID Suffixdefault: The specified string is appended to all IDs. This is a convenient way to specify more information to server based location services such as country code or type. The alternative is to use an expression in the measure that appends extra information. With the following suffix all items are specified to be cities in Sweden:
:P*,SE
See Geometry Service Specification for more information on syntax to use.
Manual Remapdefault: This provides an easy fix for incorrect location IDs. To change them to something else use a syntax like:
"value1":"remapped value1", "value2":"remapped value2", ...
Geometry Attributedefault:the_geom The name of the attribute that contains the geometry (without name space). This field is only visible when Location Service Type is GML/WFS.
Reverse Coordinatesdefault:unchecked Coordinates are expected in order latitude, longitude or Y, X. Check when coordinates comes in the other order. This field is only visible when Location Service Type is GML/WFS.

Appearance: Legend

PropertyUseDescription
Show titlesdefault:Off Display standard title.
Size Legenddefault:Auto Controls if visibility of the parts in the left side of the legend should be in Auto or Custom.
Show Sizesdefault:Checked Turn on/off the bubbles that shows min and max size. This option is only visible when "Size legend" is Custom.
Show Size Min/Max Valuesdefault:Checked Turn on/off the text labels for min and max value. This option is only visible when "Size legend" is Custom.
Show Size Titledefault:Checked Turn on/off the label at the left side of the legend. This option is only visible when "Size legend" is Custom.
Color Legenddefault:Auto Controls if visibility of the parts in the right side of the legend should be in Auto or Custom.
Show Colorsdefault:Checked Turn on/off the color bar. This option is only visible when "Color legend" is Custom.
Show Color Min/Max Valuesdefault:Checked Turn on/off the text labels for color values. This option is only visible when "Color legend" is Custom.
Show Color Titledefault:Checked Turn on/off the label at the right side of the legend. This option is only visible when "Color legend" is Custom.

Appearance: Shape and Size

PropertyUseDescription
Shapedefault:Bubbles The shape of the symbols. Supports various shapes as alternatives to bubbles, such as triangles, squares, pentagons, hexagons and bars. Also custom symbols (png, gif, jpg, svg etc) from URLs are supported. Note that the behavior of bars is a bit different from the other shapes in that it grows only upwards. Possible values are:
  • Bubbles - Filled circles
  • Triangles - Filled triangles
  • Squares - Filled squares
  • Pentagons - Filled pentagons
  • Hexagons - Filled hexagons
  • Bars - Filled rectangles, anchored at the point and size controlls only height
  • Symbols - Any symbol from an URL can be specified in the Symbol URL expression field.
Radius/Width Min/Maxdefault:Min 5 - Max 20 The minimum/maximum size of bubbles in pixels. The lowest/highest value will be mapped to this size. This property is not available if Shape is Bars or Symbols.
Widthdefault:10 The width of each bar in pixels. This property is only available if Shape is Bars.
Min Heightdefault:0 The minimum height of bars in pixels. The lowest value will be mapped to this height. This property is only available if Shape is Bars.
Max Heightdefault:20 The maximum size of bubbles in pixels. The highest value will be mapped to this size. This property is only available if Shape is Bars.
Min Radius Valuedefault:Auto The value in the data that is mapped to the smallest bubbles, i.e. bubbles with size "Min Radius". When set to Auto this value is set to the lowest value in the selection. This has the effect that the bubble size might change for a particular point when the selection changes. If this is not the desired behavior, specify a value here.
Max Radius Valuedefault:Auto The value in the data that is mapped to the largest bubbles, i.e. bubbles with size "Max Radius". When set to Auto this value is set to the highest value in the selection. This has the effect that the bubble size might change for a particular point when the selection changes. If this is not the desired behavior, specify a value here.
Image URLdefault: The URL of the symbol image to use. Supports at least the formats png, gif, jpg and svg (browser dependent). Note that the field is an expression and that the URL should be enclosed in single quotes. Also note that the image must be accessible to the GeoAnalytics server which means that it will need to be on the Internet (if you are not hosting your own GeoAnalytics server). This property is only available if Shape is Symbols.
Scaledefault:1.0 The scale of the symbol image, where 1.0 represents the original image size, 0.5 half and 2.0 double the size. Note that the field is an expression so different symbols can therefore have different scales.
Rotationdefault:0 The rotation, in degrees, of the symbol image. Note that the field is an expression so different symbols can therefore have different rotations.

Appearance: Colors

PropertyUseDescription
Colorsdefault:Auto In Auto a default single color will be used.
Colors Drop Downdefault:By Measure Choose between "Single Color" "By Dimension", "By Measure" and "By Expression". "By Dimension" lets you select a dimension to color by. "By Measure" lets you select a measure to color by. "By Expression" requires for technical reasons that there is at least one measure. Additional options are displayed for the particular choices.
Transparencydefault:0 A slider that controls transparency of objects from no transparency to invisible.
Outline Colordefault:#aaaaaa Determines outline color of features. If the field is empty the default value is used. All valid CSS colors can be used.

Appearance: Label

PropertyUseDescription
Show Labeldefault:unchecked When checked, the label defined by the expression is displayed at each object.
Labeldefault: An expression that is displayed as a label next to each object. Only visible when "Show Label" is checked.
Out Resolution Limitdefault:99999999 The label will not be displayed when zoomed further out than this value. Check "Map.Debug.Show debug info" to see current resolution. The resolution is defined as meters per pixel, i.e. the number of meters each pixel covers. Only visible when "Show Label" is checked.
Set to Current Resolutiondefault: A button that sets the label resolution limit to the current resolution.
Positiondefault:Below The position of the label compared to the bubble. Available values are Below, Above and Centered.

Appearance: Info Bubble

PropertyUseDescription
Show Info Bubbledefault:Checked When checked, a pop-up is displayed when hovering above the object.
Info Bubbledefault:Auto When set to Auto, the dimension and measures are displayed in the pop-up. When Custom, an expression defines what should be displayed. HTML tags can be used for formatting. For instance assuming there is a field [City Name]:
'This is <strong>' & [City Name] &'</strong>'
It is also possible to use javascript in the Info Bubbles. Simply add
'<script>SOME JAVASCRIPT</script>'
to the expression. Only visible when "Show Info Bubble" is checked.
Format Numbersdefault:Checked When checked, numeric values are rounded and displayed with suffixes such as k, M, G etc. Only visible when "Show Info Bubble" is checked.
Formatdefault:Auto When Auto all numbers are formatted. When Custom, it is possible to specify which numbers should be formatted. Specify 1 for first number, 2 for second etc. Separate with comma. This option is only visible when "Format Numbers" is checked.

Chart Layer

A Chart Layer displays pie charts or bar charts at geographic locations. It takes one dimension to identify the point and one dimension for the diagram. A measure controls the size of the bars or pies.

Example: Assume you have data with employment rate for postal code areas for a range of years. You then use the postal code as the first dimension as it identifies the location. As the second you put the year. Use the employment rate value as the measure The the layer will display a small bar chart for each postal area that shows the employment rate for each year and location.

Typically one dimension is a location id such as a postal code and the second is something that can be used on the x-axis in a diagram, such as year. A measure controls the length of the bars or size of the pie slices, such as employment.

The max number of data points used for the charts (i.e. bars / slices) is 10 times the max number of objects as specified in the layer settings. So if each chart needs more than 10 bars or slices that value needs to be set accordingly, higher than the number of charts.

For pie charts you can add an additional measure to control the size of the pies. Note that this measure works just over the first dimension so that it works as in bubble layer. That way the expression produces one value per pie, not one value per pie slice. The size is scaled linearly between the min radius and max radius specified under Appearance: Presentation.

Dimensions

The first dimension represents an identity of the the point. It can also be used as the location id, see "Location Options". The second dimension is the dimension of the pie or bar chart at each point.

Measures

These are the measures. When coordinates are available (i.e. location source is longitude,latitude) specify measures like this:
  • latitude - the latitude of the point (WGS 84)
  • longitude - the longitude of the point (WGS 84)
  • value - the value that is used in the pie or bar charts
  • pie size value - optional measure that controls the size of the pies
When location IDs are available as a measures (i.e. location source is measure), specify like this:
  • Location ID - an identifier that can be used for looking up a location (see Location Options)
  • value - the value that is used in the pie or bar charts
  • pie size value - optional measure that controls the size of the pies
When location IDs are available as the first dimension (i.e. location source is dimension), specify like this:
  • value - the value that is used in the pie or bar charts
  • pie size value - optional measure that controls the size of the pies

Sorting

Standard Qlik sorting options that affect the order of pies or bars.

Layer Options

PropertyUseDescription
Map IDdefault:<the most recent map of the sheet> Specify this value when there is more than one map on a sheet to tell which map to display the layer on. See Map Id in Map Settings of the Map to get the right one.
Maximum Number of Objectsdefault:1000 To display more than a thousand object increase this value. There will be a warning if there are more objects to display.
Calculation Conditionrequired To limit when the layer is shown you can enter a caluclation condition as an expression. The layer is calculated/shown only when the expression is fulfilled.
Calculation Condition Messagerequired A custom error message that will be displayed in the layers legend if the calculation condition is not fulfilled. Only visible if a calculation condition has been entered.
Zoom Limitdefault:Min 0, Max 160000 The layer will not be displayed when zoomed further in/out than these values. Check "Map.Debug.Show debug info" to see current resolution. The resolution is defined as meters per pixel, i.e. the number of meters each pixel covers.
Restrict Drill Downdefault:0-16 When the dimension is a drill down group it is possible to restrict the layer to be active only for a single level or multiple levels. This makes it easy to create different layers that are active in the different levels of the drill down. The top level is number 0. The range selected specifies at what levels the layer should be visible.
Include in Auto Zoomdefault:Yes Determines if the layer should be included when calculating area to zoom to when automatically zooming to selections.
Disable when Inactivedefault:Unchecked We recommend using Calculation Condition instead of this option when possible since it gives better results. Checking this sets the dimension to a constant value while non-visible/disabled/inactive in order to decrease the amount of data transferred between Qliks Engine and the frontend.
Draw Orderdefault:Auto Defines how the layer should be drawn compared to other layers, which ones should be drawn on top of each other.
Draw Order Categorydefault:<Layer specific> The layers are by default drawn after the base map and the base map labels in the order Geodata Layers, Area Layers, Heatmap Layers, Line Layers, Bubble Layers. To make this layer draw in another category, adjust this value. This property is only visible when "Draw Order" is set to "Custom".
Draw Order Adjustmentdefault:0 Increasing this value makes the layer draw later, i.e. be more visible in the category. Allowed values are in the range -10 to 10. If you want the layer to be on top of other layers in the same category increase this value, if you want it to be overdrawn by other layers in the category decrease it. This property is only visible when "Draw Order" is set to "Custom".

Location Options

Location information is either specified as longitude, latitude pairs, as identities that are looked up in an external service or as sense geometries. When the term "Location ID" is used below it means it can be a sense geometry or an identity looked up else where. When it starts with a "[" it is assumed to be a geometry in a string ([long,lat] is a point, [[long1,lat1],[long2,lat2],...] is a line, [[[long1,lat1],[long2,lat2],...]] is a multi-line or a polygon with multiple rings, [[[[long1,lat1],[long2,lat2],...]]] is a multi-polygon but also accepted as a multi-line). The external service can be something as simple as a geometry file or a more complex server based service. The server based services provide a syntax for specifying more information on identities to minimize false hits. For instance containing areas and types of features can be specified. The following is the city Hamburg in Germany:
Hamburg,DE
and this is Hamburg in Sweden:
Hamburg,SE
If you actually wanted the first order administrative area in Germany named Hamburg you also need to specify a type:
Hamburg:AADM1,DE
You can also specify multiple areas when needed. For instance in USA there are many Hamburg. To get the one in Arkansas specify:
Hamburg,AR,US
See Geometry Service Specification for more information on syntax to use. When there are unresolved names a warning is displayed in the upper left corner of the map.

Layer Options

PropertyUseDescription
Map IDdefault:<the most recent map of the sheet> Specify this value when there is more than one map on a sheet to tell which map to display the layer on. See Map Id in Map Settings of the Map to get the right one.
Maximum Number of Objectsdefault:1000 To display more than a thousand object increase this value. There will be a warning if there are more objects to display.
Calculation Conditionrequired To limit when the layer is shown you can enter a caluclation condition as an expression. The layer is calculated/shown only when the expression is fulfilled.
Calculation Condition Messagerequired A custom error message that will be displayed in the layers legend if the calculation condition is not fulfilled. Only visible if a calculation condition has been entered.
Zoom Limitdefault:Min 0, Max 160000 The layer will not be displayed when zoomed further in/out than these values. Check "Map.Debug.Show debug info" to see current resolution. The resolution is defined as meters per pixel, i.e. the number of meters each pixel covers.
Restrict Drill Downdefault:0-16 When the dimension is a drill down group it is possible to restrict the layer to be active only for a single level or multiple levels. This makes it easy to create different layers that are active in the different levels of the drill down. The top level is number 0. The range selected specifies at what levels the layer should be visible.
Include in Auto Zoomdefault:Yes Determines if the layer should be included when calculating area to zoom to when automatically zooming to selections.
Disable when Inactivedefault:Unchecked We recommend using Calculation Condition instead of this option when possible since it gives better results. Checking this sets the dimension to a constant value while non-visible/disabled/inactive in order to decrease the amount of data transferred between Qliks Engine and the frontend.
Draw Orderdefault:Auto Defines how the layer should be drawn compared to other layers, which ones should be drawn on top of each other.
Draw Order Categorydefault:<Layer specific> The layers are by default drawn after the base map and the base map labels in the order Geodata Layers, Area Layers, Heatmap Layers, Line Layers, Bubble Layers. To make this layer draw in another category, adjust this value. This property is only visible when "Draw Order" is set to "Custom".
Draw Order Adjustmentdefault:0 Increasing this value makes the layer draw later, i.e. be more visible in the category. Allowed values are in the range -10 to 10. If you want the layer to be on top of other layers in the same category increase this value, if you want it to be overdrawn by other layers in the category decrease it. This property is only visible when "Draw Order" is set to "Custom".

Location Options

Location information is either specified as longitude, latitude pairs, as identities that are looked up in an external service or as sense geometries. When the term "Location ID" is used below it means it can be a sense geometry or an identity looked up else where. When it starts with a "[" it is assumed to be a geometry in a string ([long,lat] is a point, [[long1,lat1],[long2,lat2],...] is a line, [[[long1,lat1],[long2,lat2],...]] is a multi-line or a polygon with multiple rings, [[[[long1,lat1],[long2,lat2],...]]] is a multi-polygon but also accepted as a multi-line). The external service can be something as simple as a geometry file or a more complex server based service. The server based services provide a syntax for specifying more information on identities to minimize false hits. For instance containing areas and types of features can be specified. The following is the city Hamburg in Germany:
Hamburg,DE
and this is Hamburg in Sweden:
Hamburg,SE
If you actually wanted the first order administrative area in Germany named Hamburg you also need to specify a type:
Hamburg:AADM1,DE
You can also specify multiple areas when needed. For instance in USA there are many Hamburg. To get the one in Arkansas specify:
Hamburg,AR,US

  • Measure - The first measure is the location id. For lines there are two measure alternatives; One for a single location id for the entire polyline and one for using the first measure for the start point and the second for the end point.
Location Servicedefault:different for different types of geometries URL to the location service. Either a server based service or a file as specified in "Location Service Type". An expression is accepted which makes it possible to change source dynamically. This can be used for switching file in different drill down levels for instance. Note that when a file is loaded, it is always loaded via the GeoAnalytics server (as a proxy) to avoid javascript restrictions on cross-origin loading.
Location Service Typedefault:Geometry service The type of service used for location ID lookup.
Source Key Attributeoptional The attribute in a geometry file to use as the location ID. This field is only visible when a file based geometry service is selected.
Advanced Locationdefault:false The advanced location toggle controls whether to use Advanced Loction, in essence whether to use Location ID Suffix or to use Country and Type.
Countrydefault:any The Country dropdown can be used to narrow down a lookup of a location id. Using Country is a simplified way of using Location ID Suffix (see below).
Typedefault:any The Type dropdown can be used to narrow down a lookup of a location id. Using Country is a simplified way of using Location ID Suffix (see below).
Location ID Suffixdefault: The specified string is appended to all IDs. This is a convenient way to specify more information to server based location services such as country code or type. The alternative is to use an expression in the measure that appends extra information. With the following suffix all items are specified to be cities in Sweden:
:P*,SE
See Geometry Service Specification for more information on syntax to use.
Manual Remapdefault: This provides an easy fix for incorrect location IDs. To change them to something else use a syntax like:
"value1":"remapped value1", "value2":"remapped value2", ...
Geometry Attributedefault:the_geom The name of the attribute that contains the geometry (without name space). This field is only visible when Location Service Type is GML/WFS.
Reverse Coordinatesdefault:unchecked Coordinates are expected in order latitude, longitude or Y, X. Check when coordinates comes in the other order. This field is only visible when Location Service Type is GML/WFS.

Appearance: Heatmap

PropertyUseDescription
Transparencydefault:0 A slider that controls transparency for entire layer, from no transparency to invisible.
Radiusdefault:20 The radius of the circle that a point influences. Note that the length unit is set in "Radius Unit".
Radius Unitdefault:pixels Available values are pixels and meters.
Scaledefault:Auto When set to "Auto" the intensity is adjusted so that the max value is mapped to the highest color in the color ramp. When Custom, an intensity of 1 is mapped to the highest color. Note that the visualization changes when panning or zooming to adjust the highest intensity to the highest color. If you want a visualization that is constant during pans, zooms and changes of the selection, set this property to "Custom".
Weight Factordefault:1 This option is only visible when "Scale" is "Custom". Multiplies all source values with a constant. The same effect can be achieved by multiplying the measure with the same constant.
Color Modedefault:Auto Switch that sets colors to Auto, the default colors, or Custom, where colors can be specified.
Colorsdefault:"a transparent-turquoise-green yellow-red color ramp" The colors to use when coloring the heat map, in CSS format (e.g. red, #C0FFEE, rgba(31,41,59,0.26)) with commas between. For instance specifying "rgb(255,255,255),rgb(255,0,0)" would produce a color ramp between white and red. Should contain at least two values. The heat map creates linear gradients between the colors unless you specify values in Color distribution. This property is only visible when Color mode is Custom.
Color Distributiondefault: How the colors specified in Colors should be distributed along the color ramp. There must be one value per color. First must be 0 and last 1. If no value is specified the colors are distributed evenly. This property is only visible when Color mode is Custom.

Geodata Layer

A Geodata Layer displays background map data at an GeoAnalytics Map. It is statically visualized and not depending on the current selection. It is intended for custom background map data from external sources. Several kinds of map data can be accessed, like vector data, tiled raster or on-demand rendered raster, see "Source Format" below. Data can be in files on the internet of come from online services.

Note that the coordinate system of the external data must be the same as for the base map (default WGS-84).

Geodata Options

PropertyUseDescription
Source URLrequired URL to geodata in specified format. When a tiled service is selected as Source Format, the variables {level}, {x}, {y} can be used for selecting the correct tile.
Source Formatdefault:GeoJSON The format of geodata. The currently supported formats are:
  • GeoJSON file - a file based format for vector data. GeoJSON is a common format that is supported by many external tools.
  • GML/WFS file - a file based format for vector data. GML is a standardized geographic format which also is used as return format from WFS servers. This makes it possible to access online vector map data where query parameters can be specified in the URL.
  • WMS - a standard for on-demand, server rendered maps. Specify all WMS parameters in the URL except version, crs, width, height, and bbox which are appended automatically. A URL could look like this: http://example.com/geo/WMS?LAYERS=l1,l2&FORMAT=image/png&NAME=wms123&REQUEST=GetMap&SERVICE=WMS
  • TMS - a tiled vector service (sometimes also called a slippy map or XYZ map). Use {level}, {x}, {y} in the URL for selecting the correct tile.
  • Qlik GetMap - Qlik tiled raster service with standard parameters.
Stylesdefault:{"type":"polygon", "color":"white", "outline":"blue"},{"type":"line", "color":"green", "width":"1"},{"type":"symbol", "icon":{ "url" : "i://icons/images/dropgreen.png"}} Describes how vector data should be visualized. The format used is the same as in the Qlik WebMap5, see Qlik WebMap5 API Documentation, FeatureLayer. This field is only visible when a vector based format is selected such as GeoJSON.
Load Via Serverdefault:false To avoid problems that the browser does not allow loading content from different hosts (CORS) this option can be checked. It will then load the file via the GeoAnalytics server which sets headers so that cross site loading is allowed. The GeoAnalytics server will just act as a proxy which adds the required headers.
Geometry Attributedefault:the_geom The name of the attribute that contains the geometry (without name space). This field is only visible when Source Format is GML/WFS.
Reverse Coordinatesdefault:unchecked Coordinates are expected in order latitude, longitude or Y, X. Check when coordinates comes in the other order. This field is only visible when Source Format is GML/WFS.
WMS Versiondefault:1.3.0 The version of the WMS format to use when contacting the server. This field is only visible when Source Format is WMS.
Bufferdefault:100 Extra area in pixels to load to allow for some panning without a reload. This field is only visible when Source Format is WMS.
CRSdefault:EPSG:3857 The coordinate reference system that the image should be defined in. Must be the same as the base map is presented in. Most base maps are presented in Mercator (EPSG:3857) and this need only be changed when a custom coordinate system is used with base maps "empty". This field is only visible when Source Format is WMS.
Tile Size (pixels)default:256 Width and height of tiles in pixels. This field is only visible when Source Format is TMS.
Tile Width (geographic)default:40075016 Width in geographic units of tiles in level 0 (most zoomed out, entire earth). Note that for most base maps the internal coordinate system is Mercator and the length unit is meters (even if the external coordinate system is WGS-84 with length unit degrees). This field is only visible when Source Format is TMS and Advanced Settings are enabled.
Tile Height (geographic)default:40075016 Width in geographic units of tiles in level 0 (most zoomed out, entire earth). Note that for most base maps the internal coordinate system is Mercator and the length unit is meters (even if the external coordinate system is WGS-84 with length unit degrees). This field is only visible when Source Format is TMS and Advanced Settings are enabled.
Origin Xdefault:-20037508 The origin of tiles in left-right-direction in same length unit as for Tile Height. All tiles to the left of the origin have negative x. This field is only visible when Source Format is TMS and Advanced Settings are enabled.
Origin Ydefault:20037508 The origin of tiles in up-down-direction. By default all tiles above of the origin have negative y but if {-y} is used in the URL the y axis is revered and all tiles below this value will have negative y. This field is only visible when Source Format is TMS and Advanced Settings are enabled.

Layer Options

PropertyUseDescription
Map IDdefault:<the most recent map of the sheet> Specify this value when there is more than one map on a sheet to tell which map to display the layer on. See Map Id in Map Settings of the Map to get the right one.
Maximum Number of Objectsdefault:1000 To display more than a thousand object increase this value. There will be a warning if there are more objects to display.
Calculation Conditionrequired To limit when the layer is shown you can enter a caluclation condition as an expression. The layer is calculated/shown only when the expression is fulfilled.
Calculation Condition Messagerequired A custom error message that will be displayed in the layers legend if the calculation condition is not fulfilled. Only visible if a calculation condition has been entered.
Zoom Limitdefault:Min 0, Max 160000 The layer will not be displayed when zoomed further in/out than these values. Check "Map.Debug.Show debug info" to see current resolution. The resolution is defined as meters per pixel, i.e. the number of meters each pixel covers.
Include in Auto Zoomdefault:Yes Determines if the layer should be included when calculating area to zoom to when automatically zooming to selections.
Disable when Inactivedefault:Unchecked We recommend using Calculation Condition instead of this option when possible since it gives better results. Checking this sets the dimension to a constant value while non-visible/disabled/inactive in order to decrease the amount of data transferred between Qliks Engine and the frontend.
Draw Orderdefault:Auto Defines how the layer should be drawn compared to other layers, which ones should be drawn on top of each other.
Draw Order Categorydefault:<Layer specific> The layers are by default drawn after the base map and the base map labels in the order Geodata Layers, Area Layers, Heatmap Layers, Line Layers, Bubble Layers. To make this layer draw in another category, adjust this value. This property is only visible when "Draw Order" is set to "Custom".
Draw Order Adjustmentdefault:0 Increasing this value makes the layer draw later, i.e. be more visible in the category. Allowed values are in the range -10 to 10. If you want the layer to be on top of other layers in the same category increase this value, if you want it to be overdrawn by other layers in the category decrease it. This property is only visible when "Draw Order" is set to "Custom".

Animator

An Animator iterates over a dimension with a set time between each step. It will iterate over all dimension values in the most recent selection made.

Note that Animator works with GeoAnalytics for Qlik Sense as well as Qlik Sense normal objects such as bar charts, pie diagrams, tables, etc.

Dimension

The dimension represent the entity on which to animate/iterate.

Animator Options

PropertyUseDescription
Time Between Stepsdefault:4000 The time, in milliseconds, it should wait until selecting the next value in the dimension.
Total Stepsdefault:0 The amount of steps it should take to animate over all values in the dimension. For example, if there are 10 values in the dimension and the Total Steps option is set to 5 it will go to values 2, 4, 6, 8, 10 (A Total of 5 steps). If the Total Steps option is set to 0 it will iterate over every value.
Aggregatedefault:unchecked Determines if it should aggregate for each iteration. Ie, first iteration it selects dimension 1, second iteration it selects 1 and 2, then 1, 2 and 3 and so on.
Loopdefault:checked Determines if it should keep iterating over the dimension indefinitely or if it should stop when it reaches the last value in the dimension.
Show Dimension Labeldefault:checked Determines if the dimension label should be visible in the layer.
Show Dimension Valuedefault:checked Determines if the dimension value should be visible in the layer.
