How can I display custom polygon shapes on Choropleth maps?

Path Finder

I've uploaded a KMZ file as a lookup file and created the lookup definition; however, when I try to test it, the search says it's finalizing but never completes and does no display a map.

I'm not sure I got the xpath formatted correctly. Below is a sample from the KML file and the XPATH I used.

Any Ideas?

The featureIdField that I want is at the end of the sample and is:

<value>A - Regional Choice</value>

XPATH:

/kml[@xmlns:kml="http://earth.google.com/kml/2.2"]/Document[@id="featureCollection"]/Folder/Placemark/ExtendedData/Data[25]/value/text()

Sample from KML File:

<?xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8'?>
<kml xmlns:kml="http://earth.google.com/kml/2.2">
  <Document id="featureCollection">
<Style id="defaultStyle">
  <LineStyle>
    <width>1.5</width>
  </LineStyle>
  <PolyStyle>
    <color>7d8a30c4</color>
  </PolyStyle>
</Style>
  <Folder><Placemark>
      <styleUrl>#defaultStyle</styleUrl>

Hi @digital_alchemy,
In case you haven't already, you could take a look at this docs topic on setting up a geospatial lookup. It sounds like you might need to double-check the lookup definition and the XPath expression. There are some examples in this topic that could help:
