I'm using maps to display data across different indexes. While it is not possible to mix data from different indexes on tile map plugin, Maps - is the perfect tool for it. Data, which I have, contains some statistic info like: gender, age, location, population of the city where person lives and so on.
Let me start from the end, because filters are the most important feature.
I would like to display all these info stats on the map and I would like to switch between different filters on the fly.
For example, in visualizations I can define quick filters and load different data on turn on/off them (check my screenshot)
but in Maps I have only query filter and I should type query manually every time.
Regarding other options (color map and legend) it is not a big deal and rather narrow use cases and I think I'll be able to add it myself to my local kibana. For example, I'd like to define custom color map for coloring population of the cities, where green color would mean population < 100k, yellow - 100k...500k, orange - 500k...1m, red - 1m+. And in this case I need legend which would describe colors and what they mean.
Hey @matw I'm using kibana 6.8 and yes looks like you're right, I can add modify code in x-pack/plugins/maps and then I need to cleanup and restart kibana.
