The book starts by covering the fundamentals of Elasticsearch and the concept behind it. After the introduction, you will learn how to install Elasticsearch on different platforms. You will then get to know about Index Management where you will learn to create, update, and delete Elasticsearch indices. Then you will understand how the Query DSL works and how to write some complex search queries using the Query DSL. After completing these basic features, you will move to some advanced topics. Under advanced topics, you will learn to handle Geodata which can be used to plot the data on a map.
