A geoheatmap series is a variety of heatmap series, composed into the map projection, where the units are expressed in the latitude and longitude, and individual values contained in a matrix are represented as colors.

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