Qlik Sense Maps. How to get your USA area layer right?

I’ve had a lot of pain while trying to get USA states right in Qlik Sense layer maps. Some states were showing outside of USA. Remember this: USA states column has to contain short code in Qlik Sense. Full names of states will not work.

How to get it right?

  1. Select data layer -> Location.
  2. Make scope for locations custom
  3. Location type. Administrative area (Level1)
  4. Type ‘US’ in country field. (‘USA’ do not work!!!)
  5. Select your state column for Administrative area (Level1)
  6. Celebrate!
