Google has now stopped its Earth API and Maps API is a paid for API nowadays. Some capabilities have also been either removed or changed. Therefore, I had to remove all examples of VizMap applications I had created. I didn’t remove the entire topic as I thought some of the code may still be useful with some modifications.
VizMap: the measures parameter Block
This relates to Data Driven Mapping applications
This parameter block is handled by cDataSet classes and defines the dictionary fields required for charting and how to aggregate their contents.
For this example I had created a Concerts/Venues example that is now deprecated. The complete workbook (googlemapping.xlsm) can be downloaded (above) and the example Parameter WorkSheet is called VenuesParameters.
Before setting up the Measures Parameter Block, you should first define the VizMap Dictionary and the VizMap Tabs parameters
Measures Parameter Block
The block for the example application we are using can be found in the VenuesParameters WorkSheet, looks like this and is terminated by a blank line.
Each item is an entry in the VizMap Dictionary
and will be a numeric type. You can have more than one dictionary entry for the same matching excel column, and each dictionary entry would be mentioned here with a different aggregation operation. Valid Operations are
The purpose of these measures is to define how the chart and summary element should treat aggregation of numeric fields. The tab entry
for a chart field should consist of a label field, followed by a series of numeric fields for whom the measure operation has been defined as above.
The measure parameter section in this example generates the following jSon fragment.
Questions, feedback and VizMap applications you have generated can be submitted for loading to this site via our forum. The next step is to define the VizMap Controlling Execution which allow you tailor marker images and set a bunch of other behavior parameters.
