A mappoint series is a special form of scatter series where the points can be laid out in map coordinates on top of a 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 mappoint series are defined in plotOptions.mappoint.
  3. Options for one single series are given in the series instance array.
Highcharts.chart('container', {
    plotOptions: {
        series: {
            // general options for all series
        mappoint: {
            // shared options for all mappoint series
    series: [{
        // specific options for this series instance
        type: 'mappoint'
