Locations Search

We currently have just search_simple plugged-in.

We want to be able to also search local names, so suggest revising the data model for that so that gis_location_name_l10n is a component of gis_location (also needs component support in S3XRC).

We want to be able to search for locations within a specific area, so want a Map Tool to select a rectangle (BBOX) or Polygon. (BBOX will be faster to do search, especially on non-Spatial databases, which all of ours are currently).

We need support for this at the back-end (can we build on Shapely for this?):

  • gis.get_features_in_bbox()
  • gis.get_features_in_polygon()

Maybe we should plug the de-duplicator into this?
