Vector layers display points, lines, and polygons.
To add a vector layer to your map, click Add layer, then select one of the following:
- Shaded areas to compare statistics across boundaries.
- Clusters and grids
- Geospatial data grouped in grids with metrics for each gridded cell. The index must contain at least one field mapped as geo_point or geo_shape.
- Create index
- Draw shapes on the map and index in Elasticsearch.
Results are limited to the
index.max_result_windowindex setting, which defaults to 10000. Select the appropriate Scaling option for your use case.
Limit results to 10,000 The layer displays features from the first
index.max_result_windowdocuments. Results exceeding
index.max_result_windoware not displayed.
Show clusters when results exceed 10,000 When results exceed
index.max_result_window, the layer uses GeoTile grid aggregation to group your documents into clusters and displays metrics for each cluster. When results are less then
index.max_result_window, the layer displays features from individual documents.
Use vector tiles. Vector tiles partition your map into 6 to 8 tiles.
Each tile request is limited to the
index.max_result_windowindex setting. Tiles exceeding
index.max_result_windowhave a visual indicator when there are too many features to display.

- EMS Boundaries
- Administrative boundaries from Elastic Maps Service.
- Point to point
- Aggregated data paths between the source and destination. The index must contain at least 2 fields mapped as geo_point, source and destination.
- Top hits per entity
- The layer displays the most relevant documents per entity. The index must contain at least one field mapped as geo_point or geo_shape.
- Create lines from points. The index must contain at least one field mapped as geo_point.
