as far as i can see, this is a static map. meaning i cant drill down in it and focus on a specific area.
im aiming at a solution that will use google maps (or any other map like GIS for example) so that the map will have some flexability but on the other hand i do want to be able to use country/ state names as data source and not longitude/ latitude info.
You should try GeoQlik. It is a software that integrates into QlikView to provide maps visualizations. There is a free trial version that allows to use countries names to analyze data, check it out at: http://demo.geoqlik.com. You can also look at examples of this extension at http://qonnections.geoqlik.com.
