QlikTips #33: Google Maps are not working anymore in QlikView 10 SR2 ???

This week I have received some eMails and read some posts that Google maps do not work anymore after upgrading to QV 10 SR2.

So after upgrading to QlikView 10 SR2 these maps could look like the following screenshot:

Google maps are not working anymore?

I have digged into this “problem” and the solution is quite simple:

  • Just check the transparency of your dynamic background image; if this is set to 100% (like in the example above) the dynamic image will be shown, but with 100% transparency :)

Set the transparency of the dynamic image to 0% !!!

After changing the transparency again to 0%, the map should work again:

Google Maps integration is finally working again as expected

    Sorry for my poor english…
    I would like how to migrate QlikView Server 10 SR1 to SR2 ? Is it very easy ? What’s happens with my tasks ?
    Thanks for advance,

      yes it should be really easy … all your tasks should be available again on SR2 again because both SR1 and SR2 are using the same repository …

      But do not forget to backup the repository before updating 😉

    HI there,

    Just to point out that I have also seen this issue in QV 10 SR 1. It caused a bit of head scratching the first time it reared it’s head! I presume it is only an issue with documents migrated from v9?

    Hi there,
    Sorry for my poor english.!!

    I want to publish Qlikview Apps on Google Sites, is that posible ????. Actually users can only access via Acces Point.
    Thanks for help

      Sorry, it is not exactly clear for me what you are trying to achieve …

      You have two possibilities to publish QlikView applications:

      – The QlikView-file itself (for offline usage); in this case every user would need a local QlikView client
      – If you are using the web client of QlikView you always need a QlikView Server/Webserver behind …

      Hope this helps!

    Hi Stefan,
    I’m facing some problems with the locations on my map. Is like the values for Latin America are showed to east and values for Asia are showed to west. Something I noticed is when I center latin America on the map all the values belongs to Latin America are showed well (or better). I think my problem is related with the formula used to center the map. (I’m using the one that is being used on the Qlikview sample.)

    =avg( round (256*pow(2,($(var_zoom)-1)))+( Longitude *((256*pow(2,$(var_zoom)))/360)) )
    Sum of tickets:
    =Dual(Country, sum({$} [Case Count]))

    String on the Dynamic Image=
    & num(var_mid_lat, ‘##############’, ‘.’, ‘,’ ) & ‘,’
    & num(var_mid_long, ‘##############’, ‘.’, ‘,’ )
    & ‘&zoom=$(var_zoom)’
    & ‘&maptype=’&var_maptype
    & ‘&size=’&map_size_x&’x’&map_size_y
    & ‘&key=’&gmap_key & ‘.jpg’
    & ‘sensor=true_or_false’
