Discussion Board for collaboration on QlikView Layout & Visualizations.
Today, I notice that our Google Maps api implementations in Qlikview stopped functioning.
I mean Map image doesnt show up anymore inside the scatter chart. I tried various different gmap keys but no way.
Is there any change done that you' ve known in Google side?
Do we need to change something in GM code?
I almost posted the same thing and in the same time with you. I have the same problem as you regarding the Google maps not displaying anymore on the scatter chart.
I had the same issue and found the solution posted here in QlikCommunity (don't remember where though).
- Go into the Chart Properties and select the Colors tab
- In the Frame Background section, edit the Dynamic Image expression
- The last line will have: '&key='&gmap_key & '.jpg'
- Put an & in front of .jpg so it looks like: '&key='&gmap_key & '&.jpg'
Hope this helps.
Remember that the free use of the Google Maps API in an internal non-browser application is strictly forbidden by the terms of service. http://code.google.com/intl/de/apis/maps/terms.html.
I would highly recommend the use of OpenStreetmaps for that kind of Applications!
