Simple Maps Viz

Splunk Cloud
Overview
Details
This app is for anyone who wants an easy way to display a choropleth map without needing to know anything about KML files.

This app gives you a new way to visualize your data, allowing you to better communicate information in dashboards and reports. After installing this app you will see Simple Maps Viz as an additional item in the visualization picker in Search and Dashboard.

A choropleth map is a type of chart where areas are shaded in proportion to an aggregate variable that represents a geographic characteristic within each area. E.g. showing average temperature by state, or income per-capita.

Simple Maps Viz requires using a lookup that comes with the app. You can use the lookup with the | iplocation command to plot countries on the world map.

Who is this app for?

This app is for anyone who wants an easy way to display a choropleth map without needing to know anything about KML files.

A choropleth map is a type of chart where areas are shaded in proportion to an aggregate variable that represents a geographic characteristic within each area. E.g. showing average temperature by state, or income per-capita.

Simple Maps Viz requires using a lookup that comes with the app. You can use the lookup with the | iplocation command to plot countries on the world map.

How does the app work?

This app provides a visualization that you can use in your own apps and dashboards.

To use it in your dashboards, simply install the app, and create a search that provides the values you want to display.

A lookup comes with the app that lists all the codes for the country areas. You can either use the lookup directly, or create a new lookup using a specific map's codes.

Usecases for the Simple Maps Visualization:

  • Showing the source country for IP based lookups
  • Showing the relative difference in sales by geographical region
  • Comparing different states' response times for monitored applications

The following fields can be used in the search:
code (required): The code for the map element being defined - e.g. "AU-VIC" for Victoria, Australia. These codes are listed in the following lookup: simple-maps-viz-lookup
value (required): The numeric value for the map element

Example Search

index=web sourcetype=access_combined
| iplocation clientip
| stats count as value by Country
| lookup simple-maps-viz-lookup name as Country output code
| table code, value

Once you have selected the map you would like to use, you need to be able to associate the specific codes for each geographical region.

You can either use the global lookup: simple-maps-viz-lookup or create your own version with the required codes.

Use the Examples dashboard to see what codes are required for each map, and optionally export the list for use in your own lookup by clicking the icon at the bottom of the panel.

Tokens

Tokens are generated each time you click a cell (also configurable in the Drilldowns menu). This can be useful if you want to populate another panel on the dashboard with a custom search, or link to a new dashboard with the tokens carrying across.

Token Value Example
$row.code$ The map element code AU-VIC
$row.value$ The value for that map element 12345
$row.name$ The Country/Department/Territory name Victoria
$row.fieldname$ The value for field "fieldname" on the same results row as the code 12345
