How to create a line between two markers on a map?

Hello,

I have a geographical map on which I have plotted a number of markers/points based on their longitude and latitude. How can I make a line between two of them?

Thanks in advance for your help!

Best regards

Michele.

If you are running Splunk 6.4 or higher, you can use the Location Tracker app, which is a supported Custom Visualization. After you install the app, you can select it in the visualization picker along with other installed visualizations.

For example on the following map:

I'd like to plot a line between WA and MT.

Thanks, Michele.

Hi aaraneta_splunk, how can I get the question addressed to the right users or developers? Any suggestion will be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Michele.

Hi @micheledagostino - Apologies for the super late response! I'm glad that your question got resolved though.

In regards to how you can get your question addressed to the right users/developers:

-It's kind of a hit-or-miss. Generally, using the appropriate tags on Answers is helpful. If you are using a Splunkbase app/add-on, make sure you tag your question with that particular app or add-on (don't use nicknames or shortcuts; it has to be the name of the app/add-on that is listed in Splunkbase). You can tell if it's an app/add-on Splunkbase because the tag will be blue in color and have a gear icon in the tag name. That's probably the best way on Answers to get a response from developers or experts of that particular app/add-on as it is encouraged that they follow that tag. Response may time may vary but generally developers are pretty good about responding to things.

-Another way to get a question addressed is to (if you're not already a part of it) post it in our public Slack chat. People ask each other for immediate help on there daily. You can share your question/link to your post there to see if anyone can take a stab at it. You first have to request access through http://splk.it/slack. Fill out the form, and once you receive the approval email from our Community Manager (usually the approval process may take a couple days), you can access Slack.com and ask for help in the #general channel OR if it is a specific Splunk product, there is usually a separate channel that you can search for.

I hope that helps!
