Subject [jira] [Commented] (SOLR-2268) Add support for Point in Polygon searches
Date Fri, 21 Oct 2011 19:56:35 GMT


David Smiley commented on SOLR-2268:

Thanks for the pointers Teun; I will consider them when I improve the polygon support in LSP.
 LSP supports WKT, in case you didn't know.  And since June it supports indexing shapes (i.e.
not just points), which AFAIK is the only Lucene/Solr implementation I know to do this.  There
should be a lot more progress soon.  

What do you mean by faceting on a polygon?  Or did you mean faceting on "all places", but
still, what do you mean by that?

> 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.
