      Google Maps Extension with Markers.

       

      QlikTech takes no responsibility for any code and QlikTech Support Agreement does not cover issues with this extension.

      Please review Googles license agreement before you put this into production.

       

      Introduction

      This is a QlikView extension object that integrates Google Maps Javascript API V3 into QlikView.

      Load a set a coordinates into QlikView and visualize them together with this extension. This extension will plot every single data point as a marker on the map so if you have a large amount of markers please be aware that it might have some performance impact. If you are experiencing performance issues look into the cluster extension instead: http://community.qlik.com/message/325640

       

      You can either use the extension 'as is' or use it as a base to further customize it to fit your needs.

       

      Custom Markers

      Added support for custom markers images. In the properties dialog you now have the option to specify a custom image.

      You can either have a static image or let the expression evaluate one for you, for example:

      =If(MyExpression > 1, 'http://image_for_true', 'http://image_for_false'). If you do not specify an url or enter an invalid one the extension will fallback to the standard marker.

       

      Supported image extensions are bmp, jpg, jpeg, tiff, png and gif.

      You can host the images through the qlikview webserver or through IIS.
