Geo Pointsedit

A geo-point is a single latitude/longitude point on the Earth’s surface. Geo-points can be used to calculate distance from a point, to determine whether a point falls within a bounding box, or in aggregations.

Geo-points cannot be automatically detected with dynamic mapping. Instead, geo_point fields should be mapped explicitly:
