Geo Polygon Queryedit

A query allowing to include hits that only fall within a polygon of points. Here is an example:

GET /_search
{
    "query": {
        "bool" : {
            "must" : {
                "match_all" : {}
            },
            "filter" : {
                "geo_polygon" : {
                    "person.location" : {
                        "points" : [
                        {"lat" : 40, "lon" : -70},
                        {"lat" : 30, "lon" : -80},
                        {"lat" : 20, "lon" : -90}
                        ]
                    }
                }
            }
        }
    }
}

Query Optionsedit

OptionDescription

_name

Optional name field to identify the filter

ignore_malformed

[5.0.0] Deprecated in 5.0.0. Use validation_method instead Set to true to accept geo points with invalid latitude or longitude (default is false).

validation_method

Set to IGNORE_MALFORMED to accept geo points with invalid latitude or longitude, COERCE to try and infer correct latitude or longitude, or STRICT (default is STRICT).

Allowed Formatsedit

Lat Long as Arrayedit

Format in [lon, lat], note, the order of lon/lat here in order to conform with GeoJSON.

GET /_search
{
    "query": {
        "bool" : {
            "must" : {
                "match_all" : {}
            },
            "filter" : {
                "geo_polygon" : {
                    "person.location" : {
                        "points" : [
                            [-70, 40],
                            [-80, 30],
                            [-90, 20]
                        ]
                    }
                }
            }
        }
    }
}
Lat Lon as Stringedit

Format in lat,lon.

GET /_search
{
    "query": {
        "bool" : {
            "must" : {
                "match_all" : {}
            },
            "filter" : {
               "geo_polygon" : {
                    "person.location" : {
                        "points" : [
                            "40, -70",
                            "30, -80",
                            "20, -90"
                        ]

                }
            }

    }

                }
            }
        }
    }
}

geo_point Typeedit

The query requires the geo_point type to be set on the relevant field.

Ignore Unmappededit

When set to true the ignore_unmapped option will ignore an unmapped field and will not match any documents for this query. This can be useful when querying multiple indexes which might have different mappings. When set to false (the default value) the query will throw an exception if the field is not mapped.
