Text indexing, the problem in which one desires to preprocess a (usually large) text for future (shorter) queries, has been researched ever since the suffix tree was invented in the early 70's. With textual data continuing to increase and with changes in the way it is accessed, new data structures and new algorithmic methods are continuously required. Therefore, text indexing is of utmost importance and is a very active research domain. Orthogonal range searching, classically associated with

Initially, in the mid 90's there were a couple of results recognizing this connection. In the last few years we have seen an increase in use of this method and are reaching a deeper understanding of the range searching uses for text indexing. In this monograph we survey some of these results.
