Subject [jira] [Updated] (SOLR-10039) LatLonPointSpatialField
Date Tue, 07 Mar 2017 02:16:32 GMT


David Smiley updated SOLR-10039:
    Attachment: SOLR_10039_LatLonPointSpatialField.patch

Last patch; I think it's ready now.  This _replaces_ {{solr.LatLonType}} with {{solr.LatLonPointSpatialField}}
in the solr/server/solr/configsets/ schemas.  

However it doesn't modify solr/example/ schemas... I wish those schemas were stripped down
so that they were easier to maintain (separate issue).  Thoughts [~arafalov]?

> The fastest and most efficient spatial field for point data in Lucene/Solr is {{LatLonPoint}}
in Lucene's sandbox module.  I'll include {{LatLonDocValuesField}} with this even though it's
a separate class.  LatLonPoint is based on the Points API, using a BKD index.  It's multi-valued
capable.  LatLonDocValuesField is based on sorted numeric DocValues, and thus is also multi-valued
capable (a big deal as the existing Solr ones either aren't or do poorly at it).  Note that
this feature is limited to a latitude/longitude spherical world model.  And furthermore the
precision is at about a centimeter -- less precise than the other spatial fields but nonetheless
plenty good for most applications.  Last but not least, this capability natively supports
polygons, albeit those that don't wrap the dateline or a pole.
> I propose a {{LatLonPointSpatialField}} which uses this.  Patch & details forthcoming...
> This development was funded by the Harvard Center for Geographic Analysis as part of
the HHypermap project
