Subject [jira] [Commented] (LUCENE-4450) Distance boost added to Suggester
Date Thu, 18 Oct 2012 05:58:04 GMT


Bill Bell commented on LUCENE-4450:


How would you boost by geodistance instead of limiting by a location? Can WFST enable that?
Use case:

Search a business name for the whole USA, but show closest to a lat,long first.

> A common Suggester use case is to boost the results by closest (auto suggest the whole
USA but boost the results in the suggester by geodistance). Would love to get faster response
with that. At the Lucene Revolution 2012 in Boston a speaker did discuss using WFST to do
this, but I have yet to figure out how to do it).
