Previously, we used a key with Google Maps to create our scatter plots to show our sales numbers by state/city. From my understanding, we are now required to create an account and provide credit card information to generate an API key to continue using Google Maps. I have also seen where Qlik has GeoAnalytics, but I'm not sure we will use maps enough to justify going that route. Any ideas on how to accomplish using maps in QlikView to view our sales data without having to pay for another service/software?
Most, if not all mapping service providers are going to charge a fee for a 'production' level situation. I am not aware of any free solutions with unlimited use etc., they all have limits for their free versions which are likely going to cause issues in the application, so the issue then becomes what is the least expensive option I believe. The only other way to do things would be to come up with your own mapping solution, which I am doubtful you want to do either. Key thing to keep in mind here is everyone needs to make a living...
