The vector layer displays points, lines, and polygons.
You can create a vector layer from the following sources:
- Custom vector shapes
- Vector shapes from static files configured in kibana.yml. See map.regionmap.* in Configuring Kibana for details.
- Geospatial data from a Kibana index pattern. The index must contain at least one field mapped as geo_point or geo_shape.
- Grid aggregation
- Geospatial data grouped in grids with metrics for each gridded cell. Set Show as to grid rectangles or points. The index must contain at least one field mapped as geo_point.
- Vector shapes
- Vector shapes of administrative boundaries from Elastic Maps Service.
