Subject [jira] [Commented] (LUCENE-6578) Geo3d: arcDistanceToShape() method may be useful
Date Thu, 25 Jun 2015 17:28:04 GMT


Michael McCandless commented on LUCENE-6578:

I've only glanced at the patch so far, but abstractions are hard to get right until a given
API has seen a lot of usage, and I feel like spatial module already has too many levels of
abstraction now, so I think the disagreement here is good evidence that geo3d should live
in sandbox for starters, where it's free to be more "sandy", it can more freely iterate /
change its abstractions, etc.

> I've got an application that seems like it may need the ability to compute a new kind
of arc distance, from a GeoPoint to the nearest edge/point of a GeoShape.  Adding this method
to the interface, and corresponding implementations, would increase the utility of the package
for ranking purposes.
