Subject [jira] [Commented] (SOLR-5016) Spatial clustering/grouping
Date Fri, 12 Jul 2013 13:51:48 GMT


Jeroen Steggink commented on SOLR-5016:

Grid based faceting is also a kind of clustering, though not dynamic, but fixed, and would
be a great addition to the spatial features.

Region based clustering could indeed be solved by field value faceting on terms. However,
if it wouldn't be based on terms but based on polygons it would be something different. I
haven't yet tried to create facet queries based on BBOXs.

of the cluster.
