What is the best way to use Google Maps as a background service?

How can I use Google Maps as a slippy map in Qlik Sense Cloud? I have a Google developer API but can you guide me what would be the slippy map URL?

I am interested in both the terrestrial map and satellite maps

Hi Manoranjan,

Google Maps does not really offer a slippy map service as a URL like OpenStreet - you can see this area in the help to learn about other slippy map servers:

Creating a map ‒ Qlik Sense - URL and Attributions

OR

Take a look at this extension on Qlik Branch:

Thanks for your reply and guidance.

I am using Qlik Sense Cloud and so cannot use the extensions that you mentioned. I also found a great post by hva

Satellite Slippy Map on using Mapbox library for satellite map which I intend to use.

It will be very helpful once the development team allows extensions to run in cloud

AH - I missed that you stated Qlik Sense Cloud - understood. As soon as I know more on extensions being allowed in QSC I will have an update posted. Stay well
