Qlik Sense Map

Hi, I am new to Qlik Sense, and I have some questions to ask.

  1. I want to use map visualization on Qlik sense, and when I drag down the map visualization, It doesn't give me the option Add dimension, Do I have to install map extensions, which extensions?
  2. Can I use google maps on Qlik Sense without any license?
  3. To make a map visualization, are the Latitude and Longitude values enough?


Thank you in advance!

  1. No extension is needed for a regular map visualization in Qlik Sense. You first need to add a layer before adding a dimension.
  2. Qlik Sense uses OpenStreetMap, no additional license is needed.
  3. The Latitude and Lonitude fields are enough to use the map object.

Here is a video showing how to configure a basic map visualization. For further reference, please check the Qlik Help on Map objects.


Hope it helps!

after adding MAP you need add layers there you can define 


Regarding Google Maps, as Patric responded on the thread below, "the terms (https://cloud.google.com/maps-platform/terms) states that it is only allowed to access through the governed JS API."
