Creating custom Marker Icons using local image files

If using QlikView Desktop

You can use marker icons instead of bubbles when plotting points on a map by modifying the expression for the “Marker Icon” in the “Marker Properties” section. For example:

=if([Venue Type] = 'Bar/Restaurant', 				'restaurant.png',
 if([Venue Type] = 'Hotel/Convention Center', 	'hotel.jpg',
 if([Venue Type] = 'Sports Arena/Catering', 	'football.jpg',
															'question_mark.jpg')))

The list of available markers can be found in:

C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Local\QlikTech\QlikView\Extensions\Objects\QlikMaps_For_MQ_Points

If you need a custom marker icon, simply add another image file to the above directory.
