          Hi Jochem,

           

          Is it a problem with data or with the map ?

          Maybe you have a proxy problem as in my company.

          You can try to open an url (file menu) with maps.google.com

          After it works fine.

            Hi,

             

            Changing the "," &."." worked for me. Also had to change the transparancy of the image to 0%.

             

            Thanks for the help.

                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":

                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:

                Thanks and best regards,

                  It would be helpful to know what the cost of the commerical ($$) extensions are? Does anyone know what the cost is for IdevioMaps and GeoQlik?  (please post here so all wil know)

                   

                  Thank you,
