Welcome to the Highcharts Maps JS (highmaps) Options Reference

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

A mapline series is a special case of the map series where the value colors are applied to the strokes rather than the fills. It can also be used for freeform drawing, like dividers, in the map.

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