What is the data scalability of QlikMaps?

Native Scalability

Unlike other QlikView- mapping visualization tools that have a usable limit of 100-200 territories/regions, QlikMaps scalability is only limited by the resource of the device hosting the AJAX client. Stress tests have proven that QlikMaps still behaves well when plotting 3000+ territories on a machine with only 2GB of RAM. However, due to varying degrees of complexity found in polygons, a governor has been placed on QlikMaps that limits the number of polygons per layer to 2000.

Raise polygon governor in QlikMaps

The governor can be raised to accommodate a larger number of polygons but should be raised with care. 10's of thousands of polygons can be shown concurrently on the same viewing map if the polygons are sufficiently optimized. However, similar to any native QlikView or Sense object, unoptimized data can limit performance. Please use the instructions in this tutorial with care.

1. Navigate to your <QlikMaps installation directory>\QlikMaps_For_MQ_Polygons.

2. Open Defintion.xml in a text editor.

3. Search for PageHeight="2000".

4. Change the value from "2000" to the number of polygons that need to be displayed at the same time on the map.

Raise Points governor in QlikMaps

The governor can be raised to accommodate a larger number of Points, but should be raised with care. 10's of thousands of Points can be shown concurrently on the same viewing map if the Points are sufficiently optimized. However, similar to any native QlikView or Sense object, unoptimized data can limit performance. Please use the instructions in this tutorial with care.

1. Navigate to your <QlikMaps installation directory>\QlikMaps_For_MQ_Points.

2. Open Defintion.xml in a text editor.

3. Search for PageHeight="2000".

4. Change the value from "2000" to the number of points that need to be displayed at the same time on the map.

Note: This must be done on the server and development client to see the new number of points. However, the server will be able to handle significantly more points than the desktop client. It is recommended the number of points be limited on the desktop client and tested in a test Access Point that has the governor raised.
