That's all been discussed a lot in the past here and elsewhere.
What about spatial databases?
As far as I know, the options are roughly:
* Use a GIS
* Use PostGIS
* Use the R-tree indexing in Postgres natively
* Use the R-tree indexing in various other DB systems
such as GOODS, Gigabase, Shore
* Pay lots of money for the spatial extensions to Oracle, DB2,
or other commercial databases.
* Use Hybrid's dPVS.
* Write your own
* Do without
What are people doing out there?
