Space support in databases poses new challenges in every part of a database management system a the capability of spatial support in the physical layer is considered very important. This has led to the design of spatial access methods to enable the effective a efficient management of spatial objects. R-trees have a simplicity of structure a together with their resemblance to the B-tree, allow developers to incorporate them easily into existing database management systems for the support of spatial query processing. This book provides an extensive survey of the R-tree evolution, studying the applicability of the structure a its variations to efficient query processing, accurate proposed cost models, a implementation issues like concurrency control and parallelism. Written for database researchers, designers a programmers as well as graduate students, this comprehensive monograph will be a welcome addition to the field.This book provides an extensive survey of the R-tree evolution, studying the applicability of the structure aamp; its variations to efficient query processing, accurate proposed cost models, aamp; implementation issues like concurrency control and ...
