Spatial data are complex and have spatial components and uncertain properties. It is important to develop effective spatial and aspatial indexing techniques to facilitate spatial and/or aspatial querying for databases that deal with spatial data. In this study we discuss a number of spatial index structures, such as Multi-level grid file (MLGF), R-tree, and R*-tree, for fuzzy spatial and/or aspatial queries.
