Questions on Google Map in Qlikview 9

I am trying to implement Google maps in Qlikview 9.With the help on many discussion threads in community, I have successfully implemented the google maps, but I have two concerns :--

1) Can we somehow increase the richness of Google map in qlikview(while still seeing the entire map, and not some portion of it).I have attached how my maps look now, while I make no selection on Country. I was hoping to make it more rich/clear in look. Is that possible?

2) As you will see in the first screenshot of the attachment, there is some blank area above map. This blank area comes when I select Dynamic Image with formula as :-- 'http://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' and check 'Plot Area Only' box.(I have made a scatter chart)

As shown in my second attachment, if I remove plot area only checkbox, the blank area goes off, but the data points are not in correct location than. Like data point for country India, shows even below Srilanka. What can be done to remove the blank space, and still have data points on correct locations.

The entire script is also mentioned in the attachment. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Hi Ekta,

Color formatting and other stuff can easily changed by google maps static api wizard. using this wizard you can modifiy the url which you are using in color tab or your scatter chart. below is the link and you need to explore it a little bit:

Google Maps API Styled Map Wizard

Now for your space issue in maps try to change the dimensions of your chart.. you can change it from script.

map_size_x= '500';

map_size_y= '500';
