Vector stylingedit

When styling a vector layer, you can customize your data by property, such as size and color. For each property, you can specify whether to use a constant or data driven value for the style.

Static stylingedit

Use static styling to specificy a constant value for a style property.

The image below shows an example of static styling using the Kibana sample web logs data set. The kibana_sample_data_logs layer uses static styling for all properties.

Data driven stylingedit

Use data driven styling to symbolize features from a range of numeric property values. To enable data driven styling, click gs link icon next to the property. This button is only available when vector features contain numeric properties.

When the property value is undefined for a feature:

  • Fill color and Border color are set to transparent and are not visible.
  • Border width and Symbol size are set to the minimum size.
  • Symbol orientation is set to 0.

When the minimum and maximum are the same and there is no range:

  • Fill color and Border color are set to last color in the color ramp.
  • Border width and Symbol size are set to the maximum size.

The image below shows an example of data driven styling using the Kibana sample web logs data set. The kibana_sample_data_logs layer uses data driven styling for fill color and symbol size style properties.

  • The hour_of_day property determines the fill color for each feature based on where the value fits on a linear scale. Light green circles symbolize documents that occur earlier in the day, and dark green circles symbolize documents that occur later in the day.
  • The bytes property determines the size of each symbol based on where the value fits on a linear scale. Smaller circles symbolize documents with smaller payloads, and larger circles symbolize documents with larger payloads.

Class stylingedit

Class styling symbolizes features by class and requires multiple layers. Use layer filtering to define the class for each layer, and static styling to symbolize each class.

The image below shows an example of class styling using the Kibana sample web logs data set.

  • The Mac OS requests layer applies the filter machine.os : osx so the layer only contains Mac OS requests. The fill color is a static value of green.
  • The Window OS requests layer applies the filter machine.os : win* so the layer only contains Window OS requests. The fill color is a static value of red.
