Subject [jira] [Created] (LUCENE-7124) SloppyMath is too accurate
Date Mon, 21 Mar 2016 18:22:25 GMT
Robert Muir created LUCENE-7124:

             Summary: SloppyMath is too accurate
                 Key: LUCENE-7124
             Project: Lucene - Core
          Issue Type: Improvement
            Reporter: Robert Muir

Followup from LUCENE-7123:

Latitude/longitude values are encoded by GeoPointField/LatLonPoint with 1E-6 or 1E-7 error.

However, the sloppy distance formula is far too accurate to the actual (10nm), making it slower
and relying on large tables. We should only do as good as we need, and especially try to reduce
the huge tables.
