Subject [jira] [Commented] (SOLR-5016) Spatial clustering/grouping
Date Wed, 10 Jul 2013 13:41:49 GMT


David Smiley commented on SOLR-5016:

FWIW I plan to do grid based faceting / heat map in the near-ish future (by October?).  I'll
try to keep clustering in mind, that is leave a spot where that could be layered in -- but
I don't plan on doing clustering.

Region based clustering in particular is straight-up field value faceting.  It obviously requires
that you extracted the containing country at ingest into a separate field.

of the cluster.
