MariaDB and spatial indexes



I completed my MSc thesis, that was performed with the co-supervision of Sergei Golubchik from Monty Program AB.

It's titled "Towards the universal spatial data model based indexing and its implementation in MySQL" which translates into doing a literature overview for R-tree based spatial indexes, GiST trees (Generalized Search Trees) and implementing them in MyISAM. The work is in progress!

In case you are interested in the algorithm details of these indexes:

Many many thanks to Sergei for all his help and support :)
