I really need some help with an problem.
Essentially I need to incorporate a dynamic map/image over which I can plot a series of lat and long data. Since this will be on internal servers is there a way to plot such an object without acquiring a license for using google maps etc?
I have read a few forums on using open street maps, however, there is no step by step instructions.
If anyone can help it would be greatly appreciated.
Also i remember we need to have API Key from google.
Maps in QV is not straight forward. If you are seriously thinking of maps, you can give QS a try

Hi Calum naish,
Have you got any luck for the same? I'm asking because my requirement is also the same.
Without using any license/purchasing the same for now, I want show some demo on Maps in QV but haven't found any helpful post on community many are there but that are too old.
I found the easiest method was to download an extension such as:
Thanks for Prompt reply.
Yeah, I gone through this post but at some point they mentioned about using gmap_key & I don't have the key value.
By any chance is it possible in another way?
For both the extensions you do not need a gmap key
You can get your free API key
Once you have the key, you can paste it in your .js script to make the maps run.
Or use SVG map extension which may require 3 or 4 digit code for state/country/city etc to populate...
Search for SVG in Qlik community
Have you find what you want ?
Like you, I can't find any solution to implement easly a map (with marker and plot).
I think, to use GoogleMap API, we need a licence key; and the new google's politic is to pay to have some web tile's wab server.
Maybe SVG extension : but I have to put some plot ; and I think that with SVG, we only put some colored geographic area.
Somebedy have some easly way to do ?
