GEOMap plugin with valid lat and lon fields

Hello everybody.

I’m trying to plot the position of a ship with the latest coordinates.
the values for lat and lon are in 1 measurement, navigation.position → lat and lon
other values for depth below keel for instance are also in that database.
when I enter all the right details in the GEOMAP, alias for lat and lon + a query for the depth below keel, it still doesnt work, i don’t get any dots, or points, or markers. Ive been trying now for hours, and nothing. with the old trackmap, im able to get a dot on the right location with it.

I litterly have followed and read through all the articles and posts i can find on the internet, nothing, ive tried a 100 combination of settings, nothing works to get this simply going.

does anybody have any pointers in howto setup or use this geomap plugin?

thanks a lot
best regards


Can you post sample data here ? No reason it should not plot it. Also are you using proper ocean map. In Base Layer choose ArcGIS MapServer and then for Server Instance use World Ocean


sorry for late reply, i was travelling. As you suggested, I have selected: ArcGIS and World Ocean.
for the position, I have 2 queries, A and B, for the data, C. The values are visible

obviously im missing something, ive tried table format, etc, nothing works.



What is the source data? mysql? postgre?

the source data is influxdb

please show us the data in the influxdb bucket?

Hi, we run Influx 1.8
enclosed a screenshot of the chronograf data explorer the position entry

lat and lon are both stored under the navigation.position measurement.
I don’t need a value plotted, just a single dot for the position of the ship.
thanks again

enclosed the query and values for Lon…

PLease export as csv and post the redacted data here with | delimiter? I will try to upload to mine and see

Hello Yosiasz

i got it to work
did all the queries in one go, that did the trick, instead of multiple queries
thanks for your replies though,

Hello Martin.

I’m having the same problem. I have navigation data from SignalK / InfluxDB available as lon and lat fields in the navigation.position measurement. Trying to plot and update my track as dots in the geomap.

But so far I have had no luck displaying anything else than the map…
Could you please share the details of how you finally solved this issue?

Best regards, Leif

Do you have this configured?

Yes, but no options for selecting the Latitude an Longitude fields.

It will be really helpfull if you show your query/query result/InfluxDB structure (what is Influxdb field/tag)/panel config first.
