Executive Summary

Spatial databases have offered a large number of applications in last decade that shape the horizon of computing services from people's daily life to scientific research. For example, people rely on online map services to plan their trips; the deployment and query processing in large sensor networks often require the design of location-aware algorithms. Driven by these increasing numbers of applications, efficient processing of important and novel query types in spatial databases has always been a focal point. In this work, the authors identify a query type that has wide applications and requires novel algorithms for processing.
