QlikView and GoogleMaps

Hi all.

I think, this question has been asked several times, but i cant get my QlikView application woking with GogleMaps.

Can someone help me out ?

I followed a simple tutorial, but my map is just not showing.

Please see the attached file for details.

Of course i am open for alternative solutions in case there is a more simple or straight forward approach.

Thanks a lot for any suggestions.

You must convert the latitude and longitude in proper manner.

Example for Conversion:

Convert 102° 45' 54" to decimalform.

Clearly, I've got 102°, but how do Iconvert the minutes and seconds to decimal form? By using the definitions anddoing the divisions. The 45' means 45/60 of a degree, since each degreecontains sixty minutes. Simplification and long division gives me 45/60 = 3/4 =0.75. So the 45' is 0.75°.

Now I need to deal with the 54". Sinceeach minute is sixty seconds, then I get 54/60 = 9/10 = 0.9. But this isminutes. Now I need to convert the 0.9 of a minute to degrees:

(0.9 minutes)(1 degree / 60 minutes) =0.015 degrees

So 102° 45' 54" = 102° + 0.75° + 0.015° = 102.765°.

Hope it helps u
