Welcome to the Highcharts Maps JS (highmaps) Options Reference

These pages outline the chart configuration options, and the methods and properties of Highcharts objects.

Feel free to search this API through the search bar or the navigation tree in the sidebar.


Whether to enable map navigation. The default is not to enable navigation, as many choropleth maps are simple and don't need it. Additionally, when touch zoom and mousewheel zoom is enabled, it breaks the default behaviour of these interactions in the website, and the implementer should be aware of this.

Individual interactions can be enabled separately, namely buttons, multitouch zoom, double click zoom, double click zoom to element and mousewheel zoom.
