Can I use map if I only have country name?

Hello,

In the documents I have only the country name is there a way I can use the map app with that?

Hi Peter,

You may run into issues with using country names since the names in our Elastic Maps Service layer may differ from the country names in your indices.

I suggest comparing at the names in the World Countries layer at https://maps.elastic.co to the country names in your index and look for any that don't match.

You could download the GeoJSON file for the World Countries layer from https://maps.elastic.co and change the names in that file to match the data in your index. Then use the GeoJSON Upload tool in Elastic Maps to load the World Countries layer as a new index in Elasticsearch. That would allow you to load the layer as a Documents layer in Elastic Maps and do a terms join to your aggregated data in another index just as if you were using the data directly from Elastic Maps Service.
