Is it possible to percolate geo location searches?


(Chance) #1

I'm sure that this has been asked/answered but I couldn't find it so
I'll ask again :).

I'm appraising ElasticSearch (vs solr) and one of the coolest features
for ES to me is percolate. My question is, is it possible to percolate
on geo data? I've seen a couple people post this question on the site
without answers so I figured I'd kick off an email to find out
myself.

Thanks in advance!

Yes, you can do that, just register the percolation query with the relevant
geo part, and make sure the document has the geo type mapping.
