QlikView & Google Maps – Real Estate Demo


Hi! My name is Lucian Cotea and I am a Certified
QlikView Developer! I am going to show you how Google Maps can
bring extra value to a QlikView application. We have a Real-Estate application that contains
the current portfolio. We will assume that we have a customer that
wants to rent a two-room apartment in Bucharest. We can see the average price by number of
rooms and how many apartments we have in our portfolio We sorted the data by price so we can take
a look at the cheapest apartments. An extra requirement of the customer is to
be near a metro station. So, we look for that info in the details,
maybe the owner specified that. And here is the final result that matches
the customer requirements. Another scenario is when a customer wants
to buy a land. We clear all the selections. So, we are searching for a land for sale in
Brasov county. We have 12 items, we can see the average price. Again, let’s take a look at the less expensive
ones. Let’s take a peek also at the most expensive
ones. OK, now let’s see how Google Maps can help
us by providing context information to our data. We clear the selections and switch to the
next sheet. Because we don’t have any selections in place,
we can see the whole portfolio on the map. We have several options regarding the map
type, extra-map, extra-info and zoom level. Again, let’s go through the first scenario.
We want to rent a 2-room apartment in Bucharest. We see that, as we perform selections, the
map auto-zoom to fit the remaining items. Let’s say that we have a budget of maximum
400 EUR/month. Here are the apartments that fit the requirements. We can show extra information in the map. By mapping point of interest items like
metro stations, schools and parks, we can calculate distances from them. Let’s say that we want to have a metro station
in less than 500 meters. From the remaining options I want to see which
the closest to a park. And here is the best option that fit the customer
requirements. Let’s zoom a liitle bit to see the surroundings. Let’s take a quick look at the other 2 options,
maybe there’s some interesting information about them. Moving to the second scenario, we clear all
selections. We want to buy a land in Brasov county. We can make selections directly on the map. We can visually see the price size. Using a map to locate the lands gives us very
important information: the surroundings. The selected land looks promising. It’s located
in a residence area, with all the utilities already there. Let’s zooming a little bit. Ever more, we can see that is close to an
European road. I hope you enjoyed my demonstration, thank
you for your time. Good Bye!

  1. This app is awesome!
    At minute 3:10 in the video you show us how to "show extra information in the app" by selecting "Metro" This ability to show more than one unit of analysis or dimension in the same map at the same time is incredibly powerful however, the document from the link attached has an example that only shows one dimension. Can you share how you were able to accomplish this? Thanks
