As more data-intensive applications emerge, advanced retrieval semantics, such as ranking or skylines, have attracted attention. Geographic information systems are such an application with massive spatial data. Our goal is to efficiently support skyline queries over massive spatial data. To achieve this goal, we first observe that the best known algorithm VS2, despite its claim, may fail to deliver correct results. In contrast, we present a simple and efficient algorithm that computes the
