Configuring Qlik Geocoding
Download the template app
Either QlikGeoAnalytics Base or QlikGeoAnalytics Enterprise Server, and Qlik Geocoding installed is required in order to run.
Download the template app from the QlikGeoAnalyticsQlik Community site. For QlikView only, during configuration, ensure you insert your QGA connection key.
Load the addresses
Replace the example addresses in the “Load Addresses” section of the load script.
Start with a small list, loading only 10-20 test addresses, making sure to use the same names for fields, remapping if necessary.
For example (test_addresses_400.xlsx):
(ooxml, embedded labels, table is addresses);
Modify paths (if needed)
Modify the paths Qlik Geocoding uses to locate c:\temp and QGA, if necessary.
Run the load script
Run the script. The results will be saved to a file “AddressPointLookupResult.qvd” in the temp folder.
The QVD file can be imported into other apps, using the “id” field as the key.
Qlik Geocoding operates using two Qlik GeoAnalytics operations, AddressPointLookup and PointToAddressLookup. The Qlik Geocoding connector can be used directly in apps, but it’s strongly recommended to build your data set using the template apps, to use the optimal workflow and not overuse the limited number of address lookups. The template app is written for Qlik Sense, but can also be used for QlikView, as the load script is identical.
