Add multiple filters based on geo distance on same index

Hello ,

I have a single index containing starbucks location data , a data view is based on an index from Elasticsearch

I wish to display results on kibana visualization based on the distance with different color coding

color 1 for stores in 5 mile radius
color 2 for stores in 10 mile radius etc

I have currently tried using a discover -> apply Query DSL filter with 5 miles and create a visualization , which is yielding all the values based on the initial geo distance filter

next , i wish to get the locations that are in 10 mile radius with a different color , but unable to add this.

can you please help me understand how this can be done ?

thaank you

Hi @Vamsi. I do not think this is currently possible on a single map. The filters you are using apply to every layer on a map. It is possible for a single layer to have its own Filters, but currently you can only write those filters in KQL or Lucene syntax which does not support geo_distance queries.

One workaround would be showing two maps on a dashboard. Each map can specify a different distance filter.

Alternatively, you might be able to use a Vega map to show multiple layers with different filters. But Vega has a substantial learning curve. I'd only recommend that if you are 1) familiar with Vega; or 2) very ambitious. :slightly_smiling_face:

Also, there is a new feature in 8.9 that supports Spatial joins. This allows you to show results from one index that are within a distance of features in another index. So if you have an index of residential homes. You could configure a spatial join on that index to only show homes within a 5 mile distance of Starbucks in your other index. Then you could add another homes layer with a spatial join distance of 10 miles.
