Re: draw maps region

I resolve this problem using the parameters path that have  the google API. In this parameter i send the poligon that i need to create.

more information about static map with poligon here:

https://developers.google.com/maps/documentation/staticmaps/?hl=es#Paths

Here an example:

http://maps.google.com/maps/api/staticmap?size=480x480&path=color:0x0000ff|weight:5|fillcolor:blue|-34.56482,-58.41362|-34.59704,-58.46752|-34.63067,-58.43731|-34.62389,-58.39096|    -34.62163,-58.38135|-34.59111,-58.38203|-34.58461,-58.38032|-34.56482,-58.41362&sensor=false

Re: draw maps region

You can use google if the regions are political; i mean if there is an ISO code for the region. In case of no ISO codes there is no free option available, you have to use mapping extensions like globeqlik or geoqlik.

Another option is IdevioMaps, featured at QlikDemos and QlikMarket.

Supports both political and custom regions.

OK, just so you know, Google is only free for public web sites. For internal applications the Google Maps Premier is mandatory which starts at $10 000/year.

Thanks,

Re: draw maps region

Hi Doplear,

good example but if I want to have more polygons?

I need a thing similar at this http://econym.org.uk/gmap/example_states.htm but this page use javascript and a xml file with latitude and longitude for the single polygons.

Thanks a lot

Re: draw maps region

Hi,

I solved it. I concatenate more &path=....

but this make a problema, if I have so much of paths the get request could be aborted.
