Splunk Search

How do I run a lookup on a list of cities/countries with latitude and longitude and plot them on a map visualization?

Path Finder


I have a list of cities and countries along with latitude and longitude.

Name   Latitude Longitude
India    Blah       Blah
US        Blah       Blah

Now how do I lookup on them and plot on a map visualization in Splunk? (geostats, iplocation, etc)

Thanks in advance

Hi xbbj3nj,

let's say your lookup file is called cities.csv and the lookup is called cities then you can run this search :

 your base search here to get back city name | lookup cities | geostats latfield=Latitude longfield=Longitude count

and use the map visualisation to show it on a map.

See the docs for more details:

Hope this helps ...

cheers, MuS

Depending on the way you want results to show up on a map, a Choropleth map visualization might also be useful. See this documentation:
