Subject [jira] [Commented] (LUCENE-7229) Improve Polygon.relate
Date Mon, 18 Apr 2016 20:20:25 GMT


Robert Muir commented on LUCENE-7229:

I don't refer to the short cut... there are only 2 line-crosses-line calls in {{lineCrossesRect()}}.
that is the problem there: this is what caused test failures as soon as we improved random
polygon testing to test more than boxes.

> This method is currently quite slow and in many cases does more work than is required.
The speed actually directly impacts queries (tree traversal) and bounds grid size to something
tiny making it less effective.

it reduces the cost of BKD tree traversals and also because it makes grid construction cheaper.
This means we can increase its level of detail with similar or lower startup cost. Now its
more like a Mario Brothers 2 picture of your polygon instead of Space Invaders.

> But I also like using this method because its possible to extend it to remove floating
point error completely in the future with techniques described in those links. This may be
necessary if we want to do smarter things (e.g. not linear time).
