World map live for grafana

Hi all,

I have seen before and obviously online and movies :slight_smile: a world map but showing active connections (usually used for cyber attack Dashboards) you can see the active connections pinging across the globe. I have a static world map which is default in Grafana.

Is there any community or commercial plugin one can buy that does this? If so would appreciate the pointer.

Dear Carlos,

thanks for bringing this up. We are well looking into this direction for the Worldmap fork [1]. As far as we can see, fitting this with the upcoming support for streaming data into Grafana [2] and the new data shuffling architecture based on the DataFrame data model [3] would be a good idea.

While I can’t promise any timeframe, I am looking forward to any discussions about this topic and will be happy about any support revolving this.

With kind regards,
Andreas.

P.S.: We just created an issue for tracking this [4].

Thank you for the reply, more than happy to test anything once you ready. Just let me know.
I use to use Kibana and there was once a really nice plug in (no longer supported due to version changed) here is a link to the github might help - https://github.com/nbs-system/mapster

Hi again,

we recently found Leaflet Realtime by Per Liedman, which could bring us closer to this shared goal.

With kind regards,
Andreas.

That looks promising! Is there currently a way to display GeoJSON data on the Grafana World Map Panel? Thanks!

Hi Christopher,

Not that I am aware of. We track two proposals where GeoJSON is referenced at [1,2], the original issue is [3]. However, @samhatchett has developed GitHub - CitiLogics/citilogics-geoloop-panel: Animated Maps in Grafana, see [4].

With kind regards,
Andreas.
