Tilemap - Geolocation doesn't represent all points

When I render a tilemap with geolocation in Kibana 5.4.0, the popular areas outweigh the unpopular areas so much that the unpopular areas are not rendered by Kibana.

####Example: With no Geofilter, you can see that NY is very popular

Yet if I apply a geofilter (seen in red), the unpopular areas are then visible.

What I've Tried:

  • Appliy different Map Types in the options, yet none of them have displayed the less-popular areas.
  • set metrics:max_buckets: 20000000in 'advanced objects' to allow the datasource to return more data

Anything I can do to make this Tilemap more representative of my data?

There aren't many dials we can turn to tune this at the moment. Have you tried the scaled circles type? It might display the data better.

@thomasneirynck let us know if you have any other ideas.

yes, we don't have extra options for the heatmap.

there's an outstanding feature request to simplify the heatmap controls. Right now, they are not very intuitive or easy to use: https://github.com/elastic/kibana/issues/11759
