Geo Coordinates are not being plotted in Coordinate Map visualisation of kibana

(Navneet) #1

With the help of geoip plugin, ip that extracted from recieved log can be successfully used by this plugin and all fields related to location are being displayed in elasticsearch index via kibana.In this case, when attempt is made to create new coordinate map visualisation for geopoint type location having lat and lon coordinates, it get failed and no plotted marker is being visible on visualisation.

How are you storing that lat/long data? What is the mapping?

Hi,Following is mapping for lat/long:
"location": {
"properties": {
"lat": {
"type": "float"
"lon": {
"type": "float"

The location field is not correctly mapped. You will need to create an index template where you specify that location is to be mapped as a geo_point type. You will the need to reindex your data into a new index that uses this index template.
