Static Point Map

I’m trying to create a single point map look, but using UK postcodes either full postcode of first part of it. I can’t get it to work, but can if i use the parameter of Zipcode but this works for USA only. Is there anything in Looker for UK postcodes to do this?


The above covers some of it, but also the Plot Menu Options do not exist in my Looker version?
Any help gratefully received :slight_smile:
Thanks,
Paul

Hi Paul,

The best way we’ve found for creating static point maps using UK postcodes is to ingest a mapping into our warehouse, we found one from the ONS, that maps postcodes to Lat/Long. Then by using the lat/long field in Looker we can use the static point map.

Here’s the link to the file: https://www.getthedata.com/open-postcode-geo

Cheers,

George
