-----------------------------------------------------------

Yes there is still a bug.

Most of what I was saying was right. I just did a quick maps.google.com - click directions
- and then put the 2 lat,long in both fields.

137 miles = 220.480128 kilometers (Google)
196.6km using http://www.movable-type.co.uk/scripts/latlong.html

See on map: http://www.movable-type.co.uk/scripts/latlong-map.html?lat1=45.176140&long1=-93.873410&lat2=44.936905&long2=-91.392935

Distance:	196.6 km
Initial bearing:	096°53′44″
Final bearing:	098°39′05″
Midpoint:	45°03′48″N, 092°37′50″W

As the crow flies is less distance (which makes sense).

I even used the JS function on http://www.movable-type.co.uk/scripts/latlong.html:

{code}
return (a*Math.PI/180);
};

function hsin(lat1,lon1,lat2,lon2) {
var R = 6371; // km
var a = Math.sin(dLat/2) * Math.sin(dLat/2) +
Math.sin(dLon/2) * Math.sin(dLon/2);
var c = 2 * Math.atan2(Math.sqrt(a), Math.sqrt(1-a));
var d = R * c;
return d;
};

{code}

As a Javascript function - while looping through the results. Since I cannot find a way to
output the distance automagically from the XML coming back from SOLR.

<script>document.write(hsin(lat,lon,solr.lat,solr.lom));</script>

I kept playing with d=<km> to see when the filter is not longer showing on the results
at while value.

&sort=dist(2,store,vector(44.9369054,-91.3929348)) asc

d=285 shows.
d=284 does not show.
