Implementations of Spatial Indices


Is there anything along the lines of in julia?


What specific functionality are you looking for?


I’m looking for a R-tree implementation similar to

Update: Ah, I see there’s an package, except I’m interested in 2-3 dimensions


@visr @fabiangans may I trouble either of you to run Clang.jl on libspatialindex’s C API?




Great, I see you already got it running. Will be a nice addition. Would also be fun to implement some more of these in Julia, see this blog post:

And the authors JS package for R-trees,


For people in search of alternative implementations for spatial indices, I was just made aware of a few other options by @evetion (on the slack channel):


FYI, I’ve just started SpatialIndexing.jl. Currently there’s pure Julia implementation of R-tree (different flavors including R*-tree). It’s already working (insertion, deletion, bulk loading), but the API is not stabilized (and the query API is not implemented yet).
