GeoQlik is a powerful and fully customizable mapping extension enabling geospatial analysis directly within your QlikView applications. It is an all-encompassing product that drives the organization, management, elaboration, and presentation of geo-located information.
GeoQlik presents information using a combination of mapping layers. The first being the base layer which is customizable to use any tile map service (TMS) or web map service (WMS) available, such as Open Street Maps or Google Maps. The purpose of the base layer is to provide a base visualization of the world. After the base layer has been established, additional layers can be drawn to define boundaries such as countries, states, zip codes, or even customized regions or specific points. These layers can be tied directly to the data within your QlikView application allowing you to visualize, filter, and analyze your geospatial data alongside your dashboard.
GeoQlik comes with multiple types of analysis built in. We group them in three larger categories: Individual analysis, collection analysis, and multi-valued analysis. Individual analysis enables you to view a distinct representation on your map for every possible dimension tied to your analysis. Each dimension becomes a different color based on a user defined color scale. Collection analysis enables you to group dimensions into categories and visually associate those groupings on your map. The three visualizations of collection analysis are classes which define groupings by color, bubbles which define groupings by size, and heat maps which define groupings by concentration. Multi-valued analysis enables the visualization of proportions by multiple dimensions, i.e. the total sales split by category within each state. The three types of multi-values analysis are bar charts, pie or sector charts, and half-sector or half-moon charts.
GeoQlik also provides an array of features within the mapping object. Users can easily make both spatial selections and individual selections on the map to easily filter by a specific region or an area. Due to its direct integration with QlikView, selections or filters made within the map will carry through to your dashboard, and vice versa. This means QlikView objects and the GeoQlik map will stay in sync and allows for a seamless experience while interacting with the map and the rest of your dashboard. Powerful search capabilities allow you to locate specific points, areas, or even search by relative distance on the map and instantly filter your entire dashboard. Annotations can be made with a variety of drawing tools to provide context before printing, emailing, or pasting a map image into a presentation. In addition, Layers and analysis can be turned on and off to avoid clutter and allow focus on specific analysis.
