>sigh< "Quad-tiles" better known as quadtrees have been used to represent geographical data..let's see.. the first time I heard of them in that context was about 20yrs ago. For open source project workers to become aware of the 'prior art' in the application domain seems like a useful thing to do prior to charging off and spending a lot of time and effort re-discovering what's already known.
