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.


A flowmap series is a series laid out on top of a map series allowing to display route paths (e.g. flight or ship routes) or flows on a map. It creates a link between two points on a map chart.

In TypeScript the type option must always be set.

Configuration options for the series are given in three levels:

  1. Options for all series in a chart are defined in the plotOptions.series object.
  2. Options for all flowmap series are defined in plotOptions.flowmap.
  3. Options for one single series are given in the series instance array.
Highcharts.chart('container', {
    plotOptions: {
        series: {
            // general options for all series
        flowmap: {
            // shared options for all flowmap series
    series: [{
        // specific options for this series instance
        type: 'flowmap'
