Elastic Maps for Geospatial Analysis

Introducing Maps, a new Kibana application for geospatial analysis. Geo data is everywhere and is an integral part of a multitude of use cases. Backed by Elasticsearch, Maps enables you to analyze your geo data in real time, at scale, like never before.

With features like multiple indices and layers, the ability to map individual points and shapes, and dynamic client-side styling, you can take your geospatial data to the next level. Take advantage of the out-of-the-box baselayer maps and vector shapes in Elastic Maps Service or customize your map with your own. With Maps, Elastic enables you to gain full visibility into your geo data.
