Can't map geo_shapes in Kibana 6.3.0

(Mike Niemaz) #1

I'm using ES and Kibana 6.3.0.

I have the following data indexed in ES:
"name": "toto",
"geometry": {
"coordinates": [
"type": "LineString"
with the following mapping:
"mappings": {
"xxx": {
"dynamic": "strict",
"properties": {
"name": {
"type": "text",
"fields": {
"keyword": {
"ignore_above": 256,
"type": "keyword"
"geometry": {
"type": "geo_shape"

The problem I have is to visualize the above shpe on a map using Kibana's Region Map visualization.
Indeed, when I select the shapefield, it does not list my geo_shape type term (i.e: geometry) so I can not display anything on the map.

Any idea why?

Hi @Mike_Niemaz

There is currently not support for geo_shape in Kibana. You can track the progress here which describes the first scope of the new geo solution which includes what your looking to accomplish.
