    Types can probably be best thought of as a Class for your index and a map is the definition for that type. In this lesson, you will learn how to create a mapping type for an index based on sample data, verify it, then store data in the index using that type. You will also learn how Elasticsearch can automatically create them for you (known as Dynamic Mapping), and you’ll learn what mapping explosion is and how to avoid it.
