Hi Guys,

I can see the World Map, when it should be the map of the Netherlands.

The latitude and longtitude numbers seem to be correct.

I've attached my qlikview document. Can some please explain want i'm doing wrong?

## Re: google maps appears but no link with lat & lng

Hi Isam

Divide long/lat by 100000000

I create a mini app with the cities coordinates. it works

I've check it my other qlikview file. It seems that when I load the lat. & long. based on the format below it works.

I want to change my format to this format above (hoping that it will solve the problem). I just don't know how to do this.

latitude/1000000

longitude/10000000

Might have something to do with your thousands separator and decimal separator.

Try changing this:

SET ThousandSep='.';

SET DecimalSep=',';

to this:

SET ThousandSep=',';

SET DecimalSep='.';

Hi JJ,

Sorry for the late response!! Thank so much for you help!! It worked!!!

just one question why did you divide the long/lat by 100000000?

Thanks !

Hi, because long/last must be between -90 & +90

## Re: google maps appears but no link with lat & lng

Hi JJ,

Is it possible to have like a small navigation within google maps where you can navigate trough the map? Or like a 'hand' were you can drag the map to the left,right, up or down to see a certain location?
