Very slow queries when using oracle spatial [message #75827] Mon, 19 April 2004 12:59

 I am storing spatial regions inside the data base. The data is very simple in form. That is each region is a small rectangle. The boundaries of rectangle touch each other but they do not overlap.

  I use the SDO_FILTER query to find regions inside the data base that intersect a particular line. I have around 25000 objects in the database.

 The problem is that when the result of the query is large (70% of the tuples) that means there are many regions in the cache that intersect the line, the amount of time it takes is a lot more than if I do the same without using the R Tree.

 I can do it without using the R Tree because all my objects are rectangles. I store the the left bottom and the top right corner of the rectangle in the data base. And then use a simple range query.

 Is this behaviour expected? should I use an R Tree index structure, or something else. I know that when the result is very large the R Tree search will have to search many sub trees to retrieve the data points. But should the performance be worse than a sequential scan?

 Or will indexes only work for cases where the selectivity of the query is high? 

 Please reply I need help,
