Subject [jira] [Commented] (LUCENE-3795) Replace spatial contrib module with LSP's spatial-lucene module
Date Mon, 05 Mar 2012 18:09:58 GMT


Adam Estrada commented on LUCENE-3795:

Yes...why not grow SIS seeing as its already in Apache Incubation? If another project is launched
with the same intention as SIS, wouldn't that mean there is the potential for duplicate technologies
sitting on an Apache server? There are a ton of different components to building out a proper
geospatial core technology. GDAL/OGR, OpenLayers and the database storage techs therein represent
some of the high points to operating a full GIS. See Wikipedia article (
and note that in order for there to be a full-fledged GIS, there has to be several mutually
exclusive components that work in harmony with each other. I see Spatial4J being a great new
way to implement geometric functions and storage within a Lucene index. That leaves the format/projection
support, visualization and management components. Wouldn't it be nice to roll all of these
fundamental concepts in to a single project like SIS? I am looking at the big picture rather
than specific or individual components.

> I propose that Lucene's spatial contrib module be replaced with the spatial-lucene module
within Lucene Spatial Playground (LSP).  LSP has been in development for approximately 1 year
by David Smiley, Ryan McKinley, and Chris Male and we feel it is ready.  LSP is here:
 and the spatial-lucene module is intuitively in svn/trunk/spatial-lucene/.
