Subject [jira] [Commented] (LUCENE-6607) Move geo3d to Lucene's sandbox module
Date Wed, 01 Jul 2015 03:31:04 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LUCENE-6607?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14609511#comment-14609511
] 

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

Wait. Core is where GeoPointField started and it's intended target. To provide a native GeoPointField
to the core/*.lucene.document package.  It only moved to sandbox because of its immaturity
and volatile API. If you look at the field type and supported queries it's no different than
Numerics and NumericRange queries.

> 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.
