      Description

      Geo3d is a powerful low-level geo API, recording places on the earth's surface in the index in three dimensions (as 3 separate numbers) and offering fast shape intersection/distance testing at search time.

      Karl Wright originally contributed this in LUCENE-6196, and we put it in spatial module, but I think a more natural place for it, for now anyway, is Lucene's sandbox module: it's very new, its APIs/abstractions are very much in flux (and the higher standards for abstractions in the spatial module cause disagreements: LUCENE-6578), Karl Wright and others could iterate faster on changes in sandbox, etc.

      This would also un-block issues like LUCENE-6480, allowing GeoPointField and BKD trees to also use geo3d.
