Subject [jira] [Commented] (SOLR-2268) Add support for Point in Polygon searches
Date Wed, 20 Apr 2011 13:59:05 GMT


David Smiley commented on SOLR-2268:

For a polygon query shape searching indexed point data, I have this working on SOLR-2155.
The search won't wrap around the date line though.

For a query searching indexed polygon data, there is work in progress that I expect will see
the light of day in a month or two.

Ryan McKinley, Chris Male, and I have joined forces to work on a joint effort for a Lucene/Solr
geospatial module. It includes both polygon query shapes and indexed polygons.  Presently
the work is in progress at but it's only
there temporarily. I'll try to remember to post a comment on this issue so that you and others
are informed.

> In spatial applications, it is common to ask whether a point is inside of a polygon.
 Solr could support two forms of this: 
> # A field contains a polygon and the user supplies a point.  If it does, the doc is returned.
> # A document contains a point and the user supplies a polygon.  If the point is in the
polygon, return the document
> With both of these case, it would be good to support the negative assertion, too.
