In order to increase the performance of spatial database systems, a spatial indexing method is necessary to manage spatial objects efficiently in both dynamic and static environments. A spatial indexing method considering a spatial locality is required to increase the retrieval performance. And the spatial locality is related to the location property of objects. The previous spatial indexing methods did not consider the circular location property of objects. In this paper, we introduce the CR-Tree that is a spatial index structure for clustering spatially adjacent objects in which a search space is constructed with the circular and linear domains. Using a spatial index structure considered a circular location property of objects, we show that high hit ratio and bucket utilization are increased through the simulation.
