New field or update field after data insertion?

Hello! I am working with a specific data set that i have ingested into elastic via filebeat from a JSON file. The data contains a large number of fields, and two of them are specific to my question. I have longitude and latitude available - however, those fields are tagged as pure string fields currently. I am unable to reload the data into the system (time wise).

Is there a way i can either:

  1. update the fields to be geo_point or
  2. create a 'new' field that shows these again, but as geo_points.

The reason for this ask - is that i would like to be able to visualize the data in the maps area of the product using the long/lat.

Is this possible? If so, could i please get some pointers? Many thanks!
