Geo_shape, geo_point - Can they be added on the fly?

If the original index has just lat/lon values, is it possible to create additional columns of type geo_shape and geo_point using values from lat/lon column in the elastic query itself?
 I am curious to know.. Thanks.

I don't believe they can be added inside a query. The mapping itself needs to change so I think the only way is to remap the index.

Create a new index.
Include new mapping for that field.
Reindex to new index.

This new index will have the correct mapping.

Thanks for confirming!
