problem with Google Map in Qlikview

Hello,
i have problem with Google Map in Qlikview.

Often the image in the background of the chart is lost

I tried to add the setting WebFileUseWinAPI = 1 in Settings.ini file as suggested in

https://qliksupport.force.com/QS_CaseWizardKnowledgeArticle?id=kA5D00000004N7oKAE&_ga=2.191746666.13...

but the problem remains.

I tried to use


='http://maps.googleapis.com/maps/api/staticmap?center='  &  num(var_mid_lat, '##############', '.', ',' )   &  ','  &  num(var_mid_long, '##############', '.', ',' )  
&  '&zoom=$(var_zoom)'  &  '&maptype='&var_maptype  &  '&size='&map_size_x&'x'&map_size_y  & '&sensor=false' & '&scale='&map_scale


or

='https://maps.google.com/maps/api/staticmap?center='  &  num(var_mid_lat,
'##############', '.', ',' )   &  ','
&  num(var_mid_long,
'##############', '.', ',' )   &  '&zoom=$(var_zoom)'  &
'&maptype='&var_maptype  &
'&size='&map_size_x&'x'&map_size_y  & '&sensor=false'  
&'&key='&'mykey' & '&sensor=false'

under colors tab, in dynamic image expression, without getting any results

Can someone help me?

Thanks

Do you have a valid API Key?

Since Google changed their pricing model in June2018 you will now have to set up "Enable Billing" in your Google Projects in order to use the Google Maps API Key properly.

hope this helps

Hi Frank,

I'm facing the same problem than Paolo.

Do you know if it will still be free to use googlemaps with QlikView ?

Thanks for your answer.

Re: problem with Google Map in Qlikview

if you register and enable billing you will get a monthly voucher of 200$.

I guess this is enough to develop a QV Map Application.

Re: problem with Google Map in Qlikview

Monthly voucher - as in something we need to purchase or Qlik is going to provide for using their map?
