Subject [jira] [Created] (LUCENE-6607) Move geo3d to Lucene's sandbox module

------------------------------------------

             Summary: Move geo3d to Lucene's sandbox module
                 Key: LUCENE-6607
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LUCENE-6607
             Project: Lucene - Core
          Issue Type: Improvement
            Reporter: Michael McCandless
            Assignee: Michael McCandless
             Fix For: 5.3, Trunk


Geo3d is a powerful low-level geo API, recording places on the earth's surface in the index
in three dimensions (as 3 separate numbers) and offering fast shape intersection/distance
testing at search time.

[~daddywri] originally contributed this in LUCENE-6196, and we put it in spatial module, but
I think a more natural place for it, for now anyway, is Lucene's sandbox module: it's very
new, its APIs/abstractions are very much in flux (and the higher standards for abstractions
in the spatial module cause disagreements: LUCENE-6578), [~daddywri] and others could iterate
faster on changes in sandbox, etc.

This would also un-block issues like LUCENE-6480, allowing GeoPointField and BKD trees to
also use geo3d.
