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.
Documents
Geospatial data from a Kibana index pattern. The index must contain at least one field mapped as geo_point or geo_shape.
Note

Document results are limited to the first 10000 matching documents. Use aggregations to plot large data sets.

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.
