Subject [jira] [Commented] (LUCENE-6607) Move geo3d to Lucene's sandbox module
Date Wed, 01 Jul 2015 03:39:04 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LUCENE-6607?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14609516#comment-14609516
] 

Karl Wright commented on LUCENE-6607:
-------------------------------------

It was never clear to me *why* a spatial feature would automatically be targeted at core.
 I have been assuming that adding field types with full query support, it's necessary to be
in core.  If this is not in fact true, then maybe there should be more careful consideration
of where *all* of these spatial-type fields live.

> 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.
