            Hello,

            we offer a service called GlobeQlik, where you can render maps on different levels of detail. We use Open Street Map as mapping service and you can generate colored heatmaps, bubble charts on a map, regular pie charts on the map and much more.

            Our pricing is based on the amount off different maps and their level of details. Even custom designed overlay shapes are possible. (and in most cases it's a lot cheaper than the above named pricing model ;-))

            For more information please visit our website http://www.globeqlik.com or send me an email to gerald.stockinger@hpartner.at. In the download section of our homepage you can also find free samples.

            Please don't hesitate to contact me.

            Greets,
            Gerald

              Hi,

              If you want you could try out Idevio Maps as an alternative, it's a faster, more interactive way to use maps within Qlikview. Main benefits are:

               

              • Fast map with dynamic zoom and pan.
              • Client side rendering, handles thousands of objects with ease.
              • Plug and play, easy to setup and configure.
              • Extendable, the extension serves as a starting point.
              • World coverage, street level for many areas.
              • Secure, own hosting possible.

               

              Idevio Maps are available to Qlikview 10 as an extension object.

               

              Visit www.idevio.com/demo for more info and demo (logon on with demo demo).

                Hi All,

                 

                GIS/Maps Analytics is a very interesting topic indeed.

                 

                However, there are many technical limitations in using Google Maps (GMaps) to display QlikView KPI indicators. Indeed, 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":

                http://www.geoqlik.com/en/geoqlik-for-qlikview/geoqlik-v11.html

                 

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