No data displayed calling GoogleMaps

Hello all,

I am a very novice QlikView user.  I have been following some threads on how to display maps inside of a Qlikview screen.

My code appears to work, but I am not able to return any data.

Below is the full code structure I am using and it successfully loads the data, populates the array and passes the string into the URL call.  But no data is returned to populate the map.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you in advance,

Table1:

LOAD Quantity,

     Customer,

     City

FROM

(ooxml, embedded labels, table is Sheet1);

let noRows = NoOfRows('Table1')-1;

for i=0 to $(noRows)

    let a=peek('Customer',$(i),'Table1');

       let b=peek('Quantity',$(i),'Table1');

    let address=peek('City',$(i),'Table1');  

     

Data:

    LOAD

    '$(a)' as Customer,

    '$(b)' as Quantity,

    '$(address)' as Address,

    subfield([Response/Placemark/Point/coordinates], ',' ,1) AS longitude,

    subfield([Response/Placemark/Point/coordinates], ',' ,2) AS latitude

    FROM [https://www.google.com/maps/embed/v1/place?key=AIzaSyC741BDXPTfBTYENutOUhuXhDIUFkyS0kfik&q=$(address)] (XmlSimple, Table is [kml]);

Re: No data displayed calling GoogleMaps

I don't see where you actually call the Google maps API. Usually, it;s done in the Chart background color (chart properties, Colors tab).

It would be easier to troubleshoot if you posted your sample document.

Re: No data displayed calling GoogleMaps

So, If I understand correctly, the peace that doesn't work is the load from the Google Maps API call... Honestly, I've never seen the API used this way. I typically use the API to get the image of the map, when the coordinates are

Based on the Google description, this API returns the image of the map and not the coordinates. Any of my attempts to retrieve anything from this API resulted in "Cannot open the HTML File" error...

Further search on the Google Maps API page tells me that the API that returns coordinates, is called Geocoding Service. Check it out here:

Geocoding service - Google Maps JavaScript API v3 — Google Developers
