Isn't min/max just a 2d bounding box? If you do a bulk data load of something like the census data then sure, every page will have data points for some geometrically clustered set of data. I had in mind to do a small bloom filter per block. In general any kind of predicate like bounding box should work. -- greg -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (firstname.lastname@example.org) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
