Grant: Can you give a good example using the same measurements for sorting and sfilt ?

Will this work? The Spatial Wiki http://wiki.apache.org/solr/SpatialSearch shows:

3.Using the "frange" QParser, as in fq={!frange l=0 u=400}hsin(0.57, -1.3, lat_rad, lon_rad,
3963.205)

The Function Wiki Shows:

Here is the correct solution: (UPDATED)

http://localhost:8983/solr/select/??fl=*,score&start=0&rows=10&q={!sfilt%20fl=store}&qt=standard&pt=44.9369054,-91.3929348&d=285&sort=hsin%286371,true,store,vector%2844.9369054,-91.3929348%29%29%20asc

The Local Solr from Patrick projected the ur, ll using the distance and did a range check
to see if the points are in the box.It is a close approximation.

Would the correct solution be the following - can I use a vector?

http://....../solr/select?fl=*,score&start=0&rows=10&q={!sfilt%20fl=store_lat_lon}&qt=standard&pt=44.9369054,-91.3929348&d=280&sort=hsin(6371,true,store,vector(44.9369054,-91.3929348))
asc

The Local Solr from Patrick projected the ur, ll using the distance and did a range check
to see if the points are in the box.It is a close approximation. An ellipses would be closer.
Circle is not close enough.

> The calculations of distance appears to be off.
> Note: "The radius of the sphere to be used when calculating distances on a sphere (i.e.
which is set to 3,958.761458084784856. Most applications will not need to set this."
> The radius of the earth in KM is  6371.009 km (≈3958.761 mi).
> Also filtering distance appears to be off - example data:
> 45.17614,-93.87341 to 44.9369054,-91.3929348 Approx 137 miles Google. 169 miles = 220

> Nothing shows. d=285 shows results. This is off by a lot.
