Using an offline map in kibana


(aviv ratzon) #1

Hi there,
I am looking for a way to use the map visualization with no internet connection.
This seems pretty possible, but I realy don't know much about this and can't seem to find a lead as to how to start.
The company I work in can make tile maps and whatever resources are needed to make this possible, the problem is that I don't know how to embed it in Kibana.
I've seen the WMS option but I don't know if it can be customized and used offline (as a matter of fact my research showed it can't).

Thank you very much,
Aviv

What do you mean by offline? If you configure Kibana to use a WMS server on your company's network, wouldn't that qualify?

By offline I mean no internet connection.
You mean that I can create a map service on my own that is not hosted on the internet but rather on our own servers, and supply an address to Kibana?
Which tools would I need to do that?

Exactly.

Which tools would I need to do that?

Perhaps http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/WMS helps? I don't know much about WMS.

Hi Aviv,

I had he same issue and I simply encapsulated jVectorMap (http://jvectormap.com/) as a new offline map visualisation for Kibana. My code is for free but jVectorMap is not for commercial use. It is however not very expensive.

It is not as precise as the real map but it was enough for my needs.

Hi snuids,

Thanks for your information. It is working perfectly. Similar to europe map, Im looking for thailand map alone. Could you please help me?

Thanks,
Vikas.

Hi Vikas,

If you are not a developper, the easiest way to go is probably to download the Thailand map from jVector map.(http://jvectormap.com/maps/countries/thailand/) Rename it to jquery-jvectormap-europe-mill.js and replace the previous jquery-jvectormap-europe-mill.js file in the kibana jvectormap plugin folder. Selecting europe should show Thailand.

On the other hand, if you are a developper, it should not be difficult to add the Thailand option in the combo box.

You probably also need to force the reload of the plugin.

Hope it helps.

Cheers,

Thanks Snuids,

I tried the options, it is showing the Thailand map. But below is the new problem.

lat and lon values of thailand places is working in world map. But with same lat and lon values it is not showing anything. Is there anything to configure.
