2433853 - Using the geo maps / geo enrichment features (geospatial analysis / location data) with SAP Analytics Cloud


  • How can you enable the usage of a geo map and location dimension for geospatial analysis with SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC)?
  • How to use the geo maps / geo enrichment features (geospatial analysis / location data) of SAP Analytics Cloud?



  • SAP Analytics Cloud


The geospatial (geo enrichment / geo coding / mapping / GIS) analysis features of SAC can be enabled as follows:

  1. Main Menu >> Create >> Model >> Import a file from your computer.
  • Prerequisites require that your file include latitude / longitude coordinates or region data (area name).
  • Note: When adding Area Name Geo Enrichment to models, you can now use country, region and subregion data to create location dimensions for country/regions besides the United States.
  • The country/region data can be provided as ISO3 and ISO2 codes, or the country/region names in English.


  1. Main Menu >> Create >> Model >> Get data from a data source >> Live Data connection.
  • Prerequisites require that the live data connection model is based on a HANA calculation view enriched with latitude / longitude coordinates. 
  • See BW Live Connectivity Geo Map Support.
