      Hello,

      Firstly, I displayed my articles on a google map but now I would like to represent these articles in different forms or in different colors.

      Can you help me?

          Hi,

          You can use an expression to change the colours of the dots on your map. To do this you need to use the "Background Color" property of the first expression in your chart (typically the latitude expression). Using this you can define a condition to set the colour. Let me know if you need any more information.

          I hope this helps

           

          Thanks

          Nick

            Hi All,

             

            GIS/Maps Analytics in QlikView is a very interesting topic indeed.

             

            However, there are many technical limitations in using Google Maps (GMaps) to display QlikView KPI indicators. First of all, the drill-down, pan and selection capabilities are quite limited. Moreover, you cannot display several indicators at the same time and on the same map (background + foreground indicators), you are also limited to draw bubbles and therefore you cannot display pie/bar charts nor "real" heat maps. Finally, you cannot display QlikView KPIs on specific Sales/Business Areas with GMaps such as the Bricks in the Pharmaceutical sector (Brick = aggregation of zipcodes).

             

            On top of that, there are also a few "commercial" aspects to be considered since many QlikView customers & channel partners use GMaps API "FREE" Key inside their QlikView server or rich client without complying with GMaps license terms...Indeed, for "professional internal use" (intranet, extranet or internet with username/password authentication to QlikView application), you must buy GMaps API "Premier" which costs about 10,000 $ USD per year or 8,500 euros per year + possible extra fees depending upon the total number of daily hits.

             

            A few alternatives exist such as Open Street Map (totally FREE) or other WMS/TMS services. I hereby suggest you to have a look at our new mapping extension for QlikView 11 SR1 namely "GeoQlik v11.6":

            Please find hereafter a few screenshots of GeoQlik V11.6 using WMS/TMS services to display QlikView KPIs
