Graph-Based Navigation Strategies for Heterogeneous Spatial Data Sets [chapter]

Andrea Rodríguez, Francisco Godoy
2006 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Querying heterogeneous spatial databases involves not only characterizing and comparing the information content of several databases, but also navigating or accessing the data sets with the query answer  ...  In particular, strategies that estimate the information contribution of data sets based on correspondence relations outperform a strategy that considers a random list or a list of data sets sorted by size  ...  Using this formalism for query processing implies that one needs to characterize the information content of data sets associated with query windows in spatial databases.  ...

Query Processing Using Distance Oracles for Spatial Networks

Jagan Sankaranarayanan, Hanan Samet
2010 IEEE Transactions on Knowledge and Data Engineering  
The distance oracle is obtained by showing how to adapt the well-separated pair technique from computational geometry to spatial networks.  ...  The challenge here is that the efficient execution of spatial operations usually involves the computation of distance along a spatial network instead of "as the crow flies," which is not simple.  ...  Any spatial query that is expressed using SQL can be converted into an operator tree [34] , which is a computational tree made up of spatial and nonspatial relational operators.  ...
