    New QlikView Mapping Extensions on QlikMarket

    Brian Munz

      EDIT: These extensions are no longer maintained on QlikMarket since that is not an appropriate place for free and unsupported extensions.  I've modified the links below to point to the github repositories where I now keep them.  Also, since they're now hosted on github, feel free to make contributions to the code.

       

      Hi everyone,

      The demand for mapping in QlikView seems to be a hot topic these days, so I’ve put together two extensions that are now available on QlikMarket bearing the QlikView name.

       

      The first one is an extension which uses SVG images to connect to the data and color and shade the regions in that image:

      Similar to this map of US Counties:

      There’s no geospatial connection here (long/lat points can’t be plotted, etc.), but it should prove useful for a lot of simple needs and uses for visualization of a geographical entity.  It comes prepackaged with 35 or so maps of countries, etc. and also offers the ability to load in your own custom SVGs for things like floor plans, seating charts, etc.

       

      The second extension is a simple geospatial mapping extension similar to the Google Maps and various other extensions you might have seen in community:

      This extension simply takes geographic data (longitude/latitude points) from QlikView and draws it over a map.  It supports the drawing of dots, lines, or polygon shapes.  For example:

      gis.png

       

      This doesn’t offer near the capabilities of a server based geospatial mapping solution like ESRI, GeoQlik, Idevio, etc. simply because it’s not server side, but it should be helpful for less heavy and complex mapping needs.

       

      Anyway, I hear a lot about need for mapping so I thought I’d let everyone know.
