Map Settings

Basemap Group

Basemap Group is a list of providers that supply the underlying base maps. Select a map provider and the provider's set of map tiles are then available in the Default Basemap drop-down.

Default Basemap

This expression sets a default basemap layer for the map. Values for Default Basemaps are determined based on the Basemap Group provider selected.

None and Custom are available regardless of the selected Basemap Group.

Custom allows for custom base maps with a call to a GIS server. When using Custom format the call using ='NAME | URL' .


 Custom can also be used to create a blank background using the following string.



None can be used with the "None" Basemap Color expression to define a color for the background. The following string will render a white background.

rgb(255, 255, 255)


NOTE: As of QlikMaps 2.3.2, Mapbox Light will be used as the default base layer instead of the MapQuest base layer.

Enable Custom Map Center

If checked, Custom Map Center will center the map on the lat/lng provided.

This expression must return a text value of latitude and longitude in the following format:

yy.yyyy, xx.xxxx

For example, if you wanted to make the map center on Chicago, IL, the expression must return the value:

41.890940, -87.624127

The map reset button must be clicked to center on the Custom Map Center lat/lng after each selection.

Enable Custom Map Zoom

If checked, Custom Map Zoom will zoom to the provided level regardless of selected points. This changes the default behavior where the map zooms to the lowest level of detail possible while still displaying all of the points plotted on the map.

This expression must return a numeric value 1-18, where 18 is the highest zoom level.

NOTE: Setting this could cause points to be rendered on the map outside of the zoomed map view. This can have a negative effect on performance since QlikMaps is still calculating points even though they are not visible.

Enable Zoom Buttons

If checked, the "+" and "-" sign are enabled for map zooming.

Enable Lasso Control

If checked, the buttons used for lassoing are enabled.

Use Metric Units

If checked, distances will be given in a metric format.

Geolocation Button

If checked, the geolocation button will be enabled. The geolocation button will find the location of your device based on your internet connection and center zoom on the location.

Layer Control

If checked, the layer control button is enabled.

Refresh Button

If checked, the refresh button is enabled.

Spider Plot Button

If checked, the spider plot button is enabled.

Radial Plot Button

If checked, the radial plot button is enabled.

Search Bar Button

If checked, the search bar button is enabled.

Custom Radial Plots

If checked, radial analysis can be added to custom markers like dropped markers and marker results from search. Custom radials require an expression in the Custom Radial Plot expression box. More information can be found at Configuring and using Radial Plots.

Enable StreetView

If checked, double clicking on a single marker will display the street view. If unchecked, double clicking will select the point.

Zoom On Select

If checked, the map will automatically zoom to visible layers.

Advanced Settings

If checked, advanced settings will be made available at a Feature Layers level.

Page Height

Cube Height

Table Mode

If checked, the map will turn in to a straight table, which can be searched and exported. This aids in troubleshooting faulty expressions by seeing the numerical values and text that drive color and size of points, polygons and lines on the map.
