Subject [jira] [Commented] (LUCENE-6607) Move geo3d to Lucene's sandbox module
Date Wed, 01 Jul 2015 02:48:04 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LUCENE-6607?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14609482#comment-14609482
] 

Nicholas Knize commented on LUCENE-6607:
----------------------------------------

Except it's intended that BKD and GeoPointField will (eventually) graduate to core to provide
a dependency free geo option. Won't introducing a spatial4j dependency pose a problem at that
point?

> 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.
