Geo Bounds Aggregationedit

A metric aggregation that computes the bounding box containing all geo values for a field.

Example:

PUT /museums
{
  "mappings": {
    "properties": {
      "location": {
        "type": "geo_point"
      }
    }
  }
}

POST /museums/_bulk?refresh
{"index":{"_id":1}}
{"location": "52.374081,4.912350", "name": "NEMO Science Museum"}
{"index":{"_id":2}}
{"location": "52.369219,4.901618", "name": "Museum Het Rembrandthuis"}
{"index":{"_id":3}}
{"location": "52.371667,4.914722", "name": "Nederlands Scheepvaartmuseum"}
{"index":{"_id":4}}
{"location": "51.222900,4.405200", "name": "Letterenhuis"}
{"index":{"_id":5}}
{"location": "48.861111,2.336389", "name": "Musée du Louvre"}
{"index":{"_id":6}}
{"location": "48.860000,2.327000", "name": "Musée d'Orsay"}

POST /museums/_search?size=0
{
  "query": {
    "match": { "name": "musée" }
  },
  "aggs": {
    "viewport": {
      "geo_bounds": {
        "field": "location",    
        "wrap_longitude": true  
      }
    }
  }
}

The geo_bounds aggregation specifies the field to use to obtain the bounds.

wrap_longitude is an optional parameter which specifies whether the bounding box should be allowed to overlap the international date line. The default value is true.

The above aggregation demonstrates how one would compute the bounding box of the location field for all documents with a business type of shop.

The response for the above aggregation:

{
  ...
  "aggregations": {
    "viewport": {
      "bounds": {
        "top_left": {
          "lat": 48.86111099738628,
          "lon": 2.3269999679178
        },
        "bottom_right": {
          "lat": 48.85999997612089,
          "lon": 2.3363889567553997
        }
      }
    }
  }
}

Geo Bounds Aggregation on geo_shape fieldsedit

The Geo Bounds Aggregation is also supported on geo_shape fields.

Example:

PUT /places
{
  "mappings": {
    "properties": {
      "geometry": {
        "type": "geo_shape"
      }
    }
  }
}

POST /places/_bulk?refresh
{"index":{"_id":1}}
{"name": "NEMO Science Museum", "geometry": "POINT(4.912350 52.374081)" }
{"index":{"_id":2}}
{"name": "Sportpark De Weeren", "geometry": { "type": "Polygon", "coordinates": [ [ [ 4.965305328369141, 52.39347642069457 ], [ 4.966979026794433, 52.391721758934835 ], [ 4.969425201416015, 52.39238958618537 ], [ 4.967944622039794, 52.39420969150824 ], [ 4.965305328369141, 52.39347642069457 ] ] ] } }

POST /places/_search?size=0
{
  "aggs": {
    "viewport": {
      "geo_bounds": {
        "field": "geometry"
      }
    }
  }
}

        },
        "bottom_right": {
