Hortonworks Sandbox for HDP and HDF is your chance to get started on learning, developing, testing and trying out new features. Each download comes preconfigured with interactive tutorials, sample data and developments from the Apache community.

This error may occur if you’re using sort=geodist() in your Solr Spatial / Geographic Search. The reason is probably that you have an empty pt= value or that the parameter is missing all together.

You might also want to make sure that your Solr version is new enough to support sorting by functions, but if you’re doing anything useful with spatial searches you’re probably updated enough – at least for geodist(). :-)

Hortonworks Community Connection (HCC) is an online collaboration destination for developers, DevOps, customers and partners to get answers to questions, collaborate on technical articles and share code examples from GitHub.  Join the discussion.
