Mapping and data point volume

Is there any physical limitation on the number of points that can be plotted onto a map in Qlik Sense?

With extension-based solutions in QlikView 11, things get difficult when throwing large of amounts of points at the extension.

I'm hoping that the fact there is no extension involved would remove this limitation somewhat.

Regards,

Brian

Re: Mapping and data point volume

Hi Brian,

Yes, in QlikSense the mapping object has a limitation of 1000 data points (which is the same limitation the Qlik Sense Scatter Plot has). We are working hard to deliver a better experience when plotting a high umber of values, but for right now, that is the limitation.

Re: Mapping and data point volume

Do you have a timeframe for when we can expect support for more than 1,000 points ?

Hi Geoff,

Right now we are working to implement a solution for the scatter plot as the first priority. We hope to have that soon. After that we will adapt that solution for the map object. Unfortunately that means that you won't likely see the map solution in the next release.

Re: Mapping and data point volume

Thanks for fast response. That is great news as the 1,000 point limitation on maps is by far our biggest limitation in Qlik Sense to date

Hello Dan,

Is ther a way to know in a KPI box how many points are displayed on the map for a selection ?

Thanks

Re: Mapping and data point volume

Hi Geoff, you might want to try IdevioMaps, it doesn't have a limit of points.

There is also a nice feature called "Select by visible" that enables of big (>M) datasets.

(IdevioMaps and large point datasets - YouTube)

Re: Mapping and data point volume

Hi Dan,

it has been very long. Is there any update on this.

It is very ridiculous limitation, specially when we talk about big data and buzz words like this.

Qlik Sense Map.

I map about 9500 cities in the Nordics.

Zooming in I can see  Bubbles(Cities) are missing.

If I filter on ,for example Finland (1200 cities), I can see more bubbles(Cities) in the country

Is it still a limitation in Qlik?

Re: Mapping and data point volume

Hi Dan,

The smart data compression is useful when you have two dimensions.

If you use an expression to color the bubbles, compression no longer allows you to see that color.

Do you plan to display more than 1000 points in the scatter plot ?

I work with Data scientists who really need this feature.

Thanks.

Paul
