#3528 closed enhancement (fixed)

Use tree-based distance calculation by default in geography

The overhead of building the tree compared to the overhead of extra geodetic calculations means that we're better off just running the tree every time. See #3524.

I'm going to assume you are too busy playing politics roulette to be bothered with the much funner (and might I add more rewarding work) of software development.

In 16091:

Default to using the tree-based geography distance
calculation in all cases. (Closes #3528)
As implemented this results in trees being
calculated once more than is absolutely necessary
in the cached case, but changing that involves
re-working all the caching code for geos/geography/intersects
which is non-ideal.
