Abstract

Recently there has been an increasing interest in supporting bulk operations on multidimensional index structures. Bulk loading refers to the process of creating an initial index structure for a presumably very large data set. In this paper, we present a generic algorithm for bulk loading which is applicable to a broad class of index structures. Our approach differs completely from previous ones for the following reasons. First, sorting multidimensional data according to a predefined global ordering is completely avoided. Instead, our approach is based on the standard routines for splitting and merging pages which are already fully implemented in the corresponding index structure. Second, in contrast to inserting records one by one, our approach is based on the idea of inserting multiple records simultaneously. As an example we demonstrate in this paper how to apply our technique to the R-tree family. For R-trees we show that the I/O performance of our generic algorithm meets the lower bound of external sorting. Empirical results demonstrate that performance improvements are also achieved in practice without sacrificing query performance.
