An array of data points for the series. For the geoheatmap series type, points can be given in the following ways:

  1. An array of arrays with 3 or 2 values. In this case, the values correspond to lon,lat,value. The value refers to the color on the colorAxis.
   data: [
       [51.50, -0.12, 7],
       [54.59, -5.93, 4],
       [55.8, -4.25, 3]
  1. An array of objects with named values. The following snippet shows only a few settings, see the complete options set below. If the total number of data points exceeds the series' turboThreshold, this option is not available.
   data: [{
       lat: 51.50,
       lon: -0.12,
       value: 7,
       name: "London"
   }, {
       lat: 54.59,
       lon: -5.93,
       value: 4,
