Midwestern Mac, LLC: Multi-value spatial search with Solr 4.x and Drupal 7

Fri, 07/11/2014 - 20:59
div class=field field-name-body field-type-text-with-summary field-label-hiddendiv class=field-itemsdiv class=field-item even property=content:encodedpFor some time, Solr 3.x and Drupal 7 have been able to do geospatial search (using the location module, geofield, or other modules that stored latitude and longitude coordinates in Drupal that could be indexed by Apache Solr). Life was good—as long as you only had one location per node!/p pSometimes, you may have a node (say a product, or a personality) affiliated with multiple locations. Perhaps you have a hammer that's available in three of your company's stores, or a speaker who is available to speak in two locations. When solr 3.x and Drupal 7 encountered this situation, you would either use a single location value in the index (so the second, third, etc. fields weren't indexed or searched), or if you put multiple values into solr's search index using the codeLatLonType/code, solr could throw out unexpected results (sometimes combining the closest latitude and closest longitude to a given point, meaning you get strange search results)./p/div/div/div

Joachim's blog: The ripple effect

div class=field field-name-body field-type-text-with-summary field-label-hiddendiv class=field-itemsdiv class=field-item even property=content:encodedpHello! I'm back. I've not made any blog posts in over a year and a half due to the site where my blog was before,, closing down. And while it took me some time to get round to writing a Migrate script to import my posts from the old site's database, it was actually getting round to setting up this new domain that took the longest./p pSo what have I been doing all this time? Especially as I still don't have a single Drupal 7 site out there to my name? Well, these days I work on a humongous web application which has kept me busy for the last 18 months; it's a large Drupal site (we hit a million of one of its several custom entity types recently), but to the general public it's just a login page. I may talk more about the development challenges in future posts. /p pPrior to that, I was building what would have been one of the earliest big Drupal Commerce sites to launch... except that very shortly before launch in October 2012, the whole project got canned./p/div/div/divdiv class=field field-name-field-tags field-type-taxonomy-term-reference field-label-inline clearfixdiv class=field-labelTags:nbsp;/divdiv class=field-itemsdiv class=field-item even rel=dc:subjecta href=/taxonomy/term/52 typeof=skos:Concept property=rdfs:label skos:prefLabel datatype=contributing code/a/divdiv class=field-item odd rel=dc:subjecta href=/taxonomy/term/41 typeof=skos:Concept property=rdfs:label skos:prefLabel datatype=drupal commerce/a/divdiv class=field-item even rel=dc:subjecta href=/taxonomy/term/3 typeof=skos:Concept property=rdfs:label skos:prefLabel datatype=development/a/divdiv class=field-item odd rel=dc:subjecta href=/taxonomy/term/53 typeof=skos:Concept property=rdfs:label skos:prefLabel datatype=maintaining projects/a/div/div/div
