Following up on the release of the
ingest-h3 ingest processor a few weeks ago, I'm happy to announce that a Logstash
h3 filter is now also available for generating Uber H3 indexes from a given geolocation point at specific resolutions.
This Logstash plugin can provide an alternative when using the
elasticsearch output plugin in update mode (i.e. with
action => update), since ingest processors cannot be used when updating documents, and hence the
ingest-h3 processor cannot be used in such a situation.
