Flat world map by coordinates
This chart displays data geolocated on a world map using coordinates (latitude and longitude).
What data do I need for this widget?
The option to create this map will be disabled unless your query contains at least three columns with numeric values. Furthermore, to show meaningful content on the map, two of those columns must correspond to longitude and latitude and your data must be grouped.
Creating a flat world map by coordinates
Go to Data Search and open the required table.
Perform the required operations to get the data you want to use in the chart.
If your table does not contain fields representing a pair of latitude and longitude values in integer or float format, you can use the operations in the Geolocation group to create latitude and longitude fields based on existing data in your table.
For example, you can add to your table the latitude and longitude values corresponding to a set of IP addresses using the Geolocated Latitude (mmlatitude) and Geolocated Longitude (mmlongitude) operations.
- Select Additional tools → Charts → Maps → Flat world map by coordinates from the query toolbar.
Click and drag the column headers to the corresponding fields. This chart requires you to select three fields:
Latitude float, integer, duration Longitude float, integer, duration Size/Color float, integer, duration
- The flat world map by coordinates is displayed.

You can recreate the example shown in the picture above with the data from the following query and mapping the fields as follows:
from siem.logtrust.web.activity select ip4(srcHost) as ipHost, mmlatitude(ipHost) as latitude, mmlongitude(ipHost) as longitude group every 5m by longitude, latitude every 5m select count() as count
