Some questions here.
We are planning to buy licenses of GeoQlik to do a similar work as this extension. So...
1. (if one used both) How does it relate to GeoQlik?
2. Does this extension work on a web interface? I tried to use the web view and it does not show.
3. Does it work on a public internet server (Qlikview IAS - Information Access Server)?
4. Is there a way to work with hierarchies? I.e. drill-down/roll-up on different map levels (country, states, cities)?
5. Are there any restrictions for its use? Like it doesn't work with xyz server etc?
I started to play with your extension, but unfortunately have a following error:
Cannot open file 'D:\Inst.dsk\Develop\QlikView\Extensions\openlayers\US States.txt' The system cannot find the file specified.
RIGHT(TRIM(@1:n), 2) as State,
TRIM(@1:n) as Data
(fix, codepage is 1252)
I think this is quite simple. Just define the tag name considering the
concatenation of city and province name inside the kml file. Do the same in
your data model, and use this field (city+province) in the "region name"
property of the chart.

Great work, I am totaly new to QV, need to Know how to get the extension showing up in QV desktop personal edition. I have downloaded a KML of Chile, saved the file as ci.zip instead of ci.kmz. When I extract the ci.zip, it is read only. Do I have to edit the script in QV so as to look for the file......reading your notes I am using explorer 8. I have no programing knowledge, all I want is to get a map of chile to show in QV, then set it up to work like a heat map. Any help is much appreciated.
Thank you for the plugin. I have the same issue as stingray when I try to reload. Is the 'US States.txt' file the source of the 'Num' column, and not included in the zip?
Also, does line 62 of 'Script - Just Load.js' need to end, "us_states.xml" instead of "-.kml" in order for it to work on IE8? (I have tried both ways, but do not see the shapes.)
I have explored the extension and it was great .
I had a shape and i converted it into KML format (using shp2kml 2.0)
Then I have put both kml and xml version of my polygon into the extention.
What are the next steps? what parameter do I need to change in .js file?
I was confused even after reading the guide.
I can't seem to figure out what I have done wrong. Here is what I did (Windows XP, QlikView 11, IE 8):
1) Placed the extension file in "C:\Documents and Settings\username\Application Data\QlikTech\QlikView\Extensions\Objects" and installed it.
2) Created a new QlikView document.
2) I downloaded a KML file of US States. It has the structure you specified (includes polygons). I renamed the KML to XML and placed it in my QlikView project folder.
3) I turned on web view and placed your map. I set the region name and KML FileName properties, saved and refreshed. If I double the map object I see a map of the world.
4) Opened script and loaded the same US States XML that was used for the map source file so I could get a list of state names.
5) Placed listbox object on the screen and set it's source to the same field I set the map region name property to.
6) Saved everything and reloaded, of course.
7) When I click a name in the listbox, the map goes blank.
So, I suspect the map and the listbox aren't talking to one another but I don't know why.
