This might be a stupid question, please forgive me.
But I am struggling to get the default mapping for my geoip field location to be changed from float to geo_point, I haven't found out how to do this.
But - is there any reason at all for NOT having the location field mapped as a geo_point type?
Is there any other use for this field than doing geoip calculations?
Is there a technical issue?
I seem to understand that everyone is having an issue with this and it is solved by the default mapping feature. But the documentation on this topic is sub-optimal.
