      Description

      SOLR-6183 introduced the new BBoxField type which allows the indexing of geospatial areas. However, upon trying it out I found numerous problems.

      First off, as described already by me in the solr-user mailing list and by David Smiley in SOLR-6781, indexing doesn't work with dynamic fields.

      However, the problems continue after that: when searching, for some reason it seems the score local parameter is necessary for filters on BBoxField fields to work. (Even for fq parameters, where a score makes of course no sense at all.) Otherwise, you get an unhelpful exception like this one:

      This is true for both the !field and the !bbox query parser - even though the latter doesn't even allow the score parameter normally. Using the range syntax for filtering on BBoxField fields is not possible at all, as far as I can see, since there is no way to pass a score parameter.

      If you use a wrong value for score, you get the following error message (sic!):

      'score' local-param must be one of 'none', 'distance', or 'recipDistance'

      Finally, only three of the four operators seem to work. When trying the DisjointTo (copied verbatim from the wiki page) operator, I got the following exception:

      java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Unknown Operation: DisjointTo
