Mapping: Comparison of map extensions?

I am interested in creating maps in Qlikview.  Has anyone done a comparison of the mapping extensions out there?  We've looked at QlikMaps.  It's good, but rather pricey ($25,000).  I would like a mapping solution where I can "query the map." 

Ideas?

Re: Mapping: Comparison of map extensions?

Hi Robert,

There are a few mapping extensions here on the community, a search should help you narrow it down. There are a few new ones too, see New QlikView Mapping Extensions on QlikMarket . There is also a sample document included in QlikView Desktop where you can see an example, called "Extensions Example.qvw". Remember though that usually the biggest cost might be that Google is limiting your usage of their Maps API after a certain threshold, whereas you need to buy an Maps API license, see Google Maps API licensing - Google Maps API — Google Developers .

Let me know if this helps.

Regards,

Erik

Hi Robert,

You could try the map extension that Brian Munz developed. I believe it's free.

Here is the link: https://github.com/brianwmunz/svgReader-QV11

What do you mean by "query the map"?

Re: Mapping: Comparison of map extensions?

I want to ask questions such as "What are the profiles of customers who live in this area?"  And draw a circle on the map to get the answer.

Hi Robert,

Again, check out the "Extensions Example.qvw" sample document included in QlikView Desktop. It has been updated in a later release, I would recommend to test the latest one, v11.20 SR7. The example seems to have some of the features you are requesting, and you can easily read the script behind document.

Erik
