‘I can see my house from here’: Google StreetView in Qlikview (with no Extensions)

This is a relatively quick post to add to my last GoogleMaps enhancement post that put simply allows you to use what you’ve already built to drive the maps integration to add StreetView into the mix as well. Firstly thanks has to go to Alexander Karlsson – seemingly Qliktech’s ‘Head of Geeky Experimentation’ (that’s a … Continue reading

Enhance Your Qlikview Maps with a Few Simple Tweaks (& fix them if they’ve broken).

Firstly apologise for the amount of time its taken to update the blog, I can’t believe it’s been nearly 3mths since my last post. The reasons are many but chief amongst them is the fact I’ve been thinking a bit deeper about Qlikview and BI in general and have been creating some innovations in those … Continue reading

Informative, Curvy & Never Before Seen (by me at least) – The Associated Curve Chart

I’ll start off by saying that I really like this chart, it started out largely as just an experiment to connect datapoints but during the development it morphed into an entirely new chart type (I’ve never seen it in Qlikview or anywhere else – please let me know if you have) that I believe can … Continue reading

The Breakdown Bar Chart – a little bit more (in certain circumstances) than you’re average Bar Chart

The Bar Chart; the ‘Mr Consistent’ of the chart world, you might add a line or two over the top or a few symbol sets here and there, perhaps a little stacking but on the whole; the bars like those of a prison cell never change. That’s not to do the plain ol’ Bar Chart … Continue reading

Qlikview Watermark Bar Charts (A Bit Like Bullet Charts..But Not Quite)

One of my long standing minor frustrations with Qlikview has been the limited flexibility when it comes to the Symbol Set available in a Combo chart. You can have: dots, diamonds, squares, circles, up/down arrows etc all of which have their uses but for me they’re sorely lacking in one small but crucial area; when … Continue reading

New Qlikview Chart Type: Dynamic Network Flow Charts

Straight away I’ll say something: this is my favorite chart type amongst the several I’ve created in Qlikview over the last few years…and I only knocked it together on Monday. I’ve wanted to create a chart like this for a while but never had the time or more importantly the inspirational leap required to get … Continue reading

The Simplest of Tricks to Further Enable Qlikview Interactive Infographics. (*Still requires common sense)

Infographics; the thorniest subject in the world of data viz: are they art, are they telling the truth, do they have a use, do they engage the viewer, do they serve an agenda over the truth, or are they just for trendy media types etc. Reading many of the related blogs and articles out there … Continue reading

The Indexed Time Series Chart – The Forgotten Technique (At Least by Most Qlikview Developers)

I really should have posted about Indexed Charts earlier as they’re something I’ve long wanted to promote in the Qlikview world and always wondered why I’ve never before seen them deployed; with the right data they’re nigh on essential to deliver the insight users need. Why are Indexed Line Charts so useful, surely a normal … Continue reading
