The most recent developments in spatial data management are reported in these proceedings. SSD '89 brought together computer scientists and experts from application areas such as geography, computer vision, robotics, computer-aided manufacturing, and environmental information systems. This proceedings volume includes subjects such as extensible database systems, spatial data structures an index structures, spatial reasoning, geographic information systems, quadtrees, and thematic map modeling.
