Coordinate mapedit

Coordinate maps display geographic areas overlaid with circles keyed to the data determined by the buckets you specify. To use coordinate maps, you plot latitude and longitude coordinates.

Coordinate maps have been replaced with Elastic Maps, which offers more functionality and is easier to use.

To create coordinate maps in Visualize:

  • Set xpack.maps.showMapVisualizationTypes to true.
  • To display map tiles, Kibana uses the Elastic Maps Service. To use other tile service providers, configure the tilemap settings in kibana.yml.

Supported aggregationsedit

Coordinate maps support the following aggregations:

When you deselect Change precision on map zoom, the Precision slider appears. The Precision slider determines the granularity of the results displayed on the map. For details on the area specified by each precision level, refer to geohash grid.

Higher precisions increase memory usage for the browser that displays Kibana and the underlying Elasticsearch cluster.

When you select Place markers off grid (use geocentroid), the markers are placed in the center of all documents in the bucket, and a more accurate visualization is created. NOTE: When you have multiple values in the geo_point, the coordinate map is unable to accurately calculate the geo_centroid.

When you deselect Place markers off grid (use geocentroid), the markers are placed in the center of the geohash grid cell.

Navigate the coordinate mapedit

Use the following navigation options:

  • To move the map center, click and hold anywhere on the map and move the cursor.
  • To change the zoom level, click Zoom In or Zoom out viz zoom.
  • To automatically crop the map boundaries to the geohash buckets that have at least one result, click Fit Data Bounds viz fit bounds.
