Subject [jira] Commented: (SOLR-2366) Facet Range Gaps
Date Thu, 17 Feb 2011 03:34:24 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SOLR-2366?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12995652#comment-12995652

Grant Ingersoll commented on SOLR-2366:
---------------------------------------

bq. it just seems like a more confusing way of expressing the same thing

I think it's a lot less confusing.  You only have to express start, end and the size of the
buckets you want.  With facet.query, you have to write out each expression for every bucket
and do the math on all the boundaries.  I don't think it is just as easy to specify using
facet.query.  Not too mention that facet.query also involves a lot more parsing.

> There really is no reason why the range gap for date and numeric faceting needs to be
evenly spaced.  For instance, if and when SOLR-1581 is completed and one were doing spatial
distance calculations, one could facet by function into 3 different sized buckets: walking
distance (0-5KM), driving distance (5KM-150KM) and everything else (150KM+), for instance.
 We should be able to quantize the results into arbitrarily sized buckets.  I'd propose the
syntax to be a comma separated list of sizes for each bucket.  If only one value is specified,
then it behaves as it currently does.  Otherwise, it creates the different size buckets. 
If the number of buckets doesn't evenly divide up the space, then the size of the last bucket
specified is used to fill out the remaining space (not sure on this)
> For instance,
> facet.range.start=0
> facet.range.end=400
> facet.range.gap=5,25,50,100
> would yield buckets of:
> 0-5,5-30,30-80,80-180,180-280,280-380,380-400
