Abstract: We present external memory data structures for efficiently answering rangeaggregate queries. The rangeaggregate problem is defined as follows: Given a set of weighted points in Rd, compute the aggregate of the weights of the points that lie inside a ddimensional orthogonal query rectangle. The aggregates we consider in this paper include count, sum, and max. First, we develop a structure for answering twodimensional rangecount queries that uses O(N/B) disk blocks and answers a query in O( logBN) I/Os, where N is the number of input points and B is the disk block size. The structure can be extended to obtain a nearlinearsize structure for answering rangesum queries using O( logBN) I/Os, and a linearsize structure for answering rangemax queries in O(logB2N) I/Os. Our structures can be made dynamic and extended to higher dimensions. © 2012 Elsevier B.V.
