Shapester - Geo Shape Editor

This app has been archived. Learn more about app archiving.
This app is NOT supported by Splunk. Please read about what that means for you here.
Splunk introduced Geospatial Lookups as a new lookup type with version 6.3. These lookups allow Splunk to find the shape that contains a latitude/longitude coordinate.

This app lets you draw your own shapes and polygons directly on the map and save them as a geospatial lookup. You can then use this lookup to set up alerts based on geofences. Or you can create a building map by drawing the buildings of your campus.

Shapester - Shape Editor for Geospatial Lookups


  1. Create shapes in the shape editor and name them. This name will be used for the feature ID.
  2. Click Save and enter a lookup name. The lookup should contain no spaces (E.g. my_shapes)
  3. Optionally: Set permissions for the lookup so they can be used by other apps. Go to Manage Lookups, set the permission for your lookup (note it will start with geo_) and set visibility to All apps.
  4. Use the lookup. Again, the name starts with geo_ (E.g. geo_my_shapes)
| lookup geo_my_shapes latitude longitude OUTPUT featureId 
| stats max(mag) by featureId 
| geom geo_my_shapes featureIdField=featureId

Known Limitations

  • Lookups are private by default. Follow step 3 above to enable lookups throughout the app
  • The convention for geospatial lookup is to use geo_ as prefix. When saving a lookup through the UI, geo_ is automatically prepended to the lookup name
  • The app supports drawing rectangles and circles. When you save the lookup, these shapes are converted to polygons. This means, when you re-load the lookup, you won't be able to change the circle radius anymore.
