Google maps need a key?

Hi there,

since a will, we were using google maps API (without a gmap_key) to show maps in our apps, but since 2 days ago the maps are not showed anymore. If I use a key the map is now showed, so I'm wondering if someone else is having this "change" or issue regarding the API.

This is happening in our servers (Prod and Dev) and in my own computer.

Thanks in advance!!

Hi

Are you running Qlikview 9 ...It looks like there is a problem with Google Maps using the Key and this version. I upgraded to 11 and the maps are back.

Hi adumd,

I had the same problem with the google api and I solved it changing the URL, including the sensor parameter and removing the key parameter .

The key parameter is not required.  See the attached file.

Thanks!! but is not working in my case. I opened your file and saw the map, but as soon as I try to change the zoom or the type or anything else, I got the attached image.

Hi adumd,

According to Google Api this image means you've exceed the limit of 25000 free static map request per day per application.

See the link https://developers.google.com/maps/documentation/staticmaps/

Please Tell me whether You are using Dynamic image if you have map for your country you can show static by following setting

Select Chart Properties - > Colours -> Image -> Select Image your country

Using this you dont' require internet if this is fesible for you you can try this.

Best of Luck.
