Subject [jira] [Commented] (SOLR-2609) Coordinate range queries do not work with Spatial Solr
Date Mon, 20 Jun 2011 14:27:47 GMT


David Smiley commented on SOLR-2609:

I highly doubt this can be fixed, based on how it works. The documentation/wiki should be
updated to note this problem.

I recommend you use bbox:
Granted you cannot specify an arbitrary bounding box, only one based on a point-distance,
but this may be good enough.

> The Spatial Search documentation states that you can create your own bounding box using
a range query:
> "Since the LatLonType field also supports field queries and range queries, one can manually
create their own bounding box rather than using bbox: ...&q=*:*&fq=store:[45,-94 TO
> This works unless your range covers an area where longitude goes from 180 to -180. For
instance I want all items in the longitude range of 
> 178 to -177 which of course gives no results (it is not a valid numeric range). It's
not really surprising that this doesn't work as it is just a standard range query with no
spatial filters being applied.
> I am wondering if this is just an issue with the documentation and there is another way
that this should be done? Please advise if more details are needed.
