I have Jaspersoft server AWS version, I see in the samples a world map chart report. However when I create a new adhoc view, I can't see any map in the chart types.
How can I create a world map report based on an adhoc view?
There is no such option in Ad Hoc designer. You would have to use a report designer like iReport Professional or Jaspersoft Studio Professional. A world map component is available under the Maps Pro palette.
Hope clarifies a little. Please check iReport Ultimate Guide for detailed information (it's availalbe in the Docs section).
Jaspersoft has not provided the HTML Map. Hope It can be expected in the upcoming versions. You can use Maps Pro element in JasperStudio right now.
Can you tell us how to use maps pro
