Welcome to the Highcharts Maps JS (highmaps) Options Reference

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

For map and mapline series types, the geometry of a point.

To achieve a better separation between the structure and the data, it is recommended to use mapData to define the geometry instead of defining it on the data points themselves.

The geometry object is compatible to that of a feature in GeoJSON, so features of GeoJSON can be passed directly into the data, optionally after first filtering and processing it.

For pre-projected maps (like GeoJSON maps from our map collection), user has to specify coordinates in projectedUnits for geometry type other than Point, instead of [longitude, latitude].
