Likewise in my history service where I need quick "give me nodes in
area" lookups. I didn't even bother to change size away from the
my $bucket = (int($lat*2)+180) * 720 + int($lon*2) + 360;
On read, I have to compute the list of "buckets" and then make an SQL
query with a "where bucket in(...)", plus of course the lat/lon
However this is really just a hack compared with proper two-
dimensional indexing or the quadtiles thingie (note that the
quadtiles approach does not only crate "tiles" on which you then have
your classic lat/lon nodes - it can even make storing lat/lon
