I like the look of R-tree implementations using database tables - that would
be a very nice recursive SP to build.

Might give it a shot today, if things get quiet.

No, Firebird doesn't have implemented the R-tree indexes (which are the
core for a spatial engine), even it will be very nice to have them, but
you can use Fb as storage engine and build a customized one for
yourself. See (nice demo here...)

...and follow the other links from these pages if you're interested. You
have there enough source code (in C/C++ or Java) to use if you want to
implement this. Perhaps the Fb team considers to implement them...
