Are you using data indexes to enhance performance in locating data objects in your software? The right index data structure can boost lookup speed logarithmically beyond that of a linear data search.

However, when indexing is considered, the first – and often only – index to be considered is likely to be the b-tree, due to its near-universal familiarity.

Join McObject president and co-founder Steve Graves for the Webinar, Boost Performance and Minimize Footprint with Specialized Data Indexes, which examines less well-known index types that may be a “better fit” to accelerate your application, including:

  • R-Trees for geospatial indexing (common in GPS/navigation systems)
  • Patricia trie (yes, that’s spelled correctly) for router and telephone directory searches
  • T-trees for all-in-memory data storage and access
  • Hash tables for quickly locating a single unique index entry
  • “Custom indexes” or b-trees that allow the application to define the sort ordering of entries, rather than defaulting to lexographical or numerical sorting; this is useful in implementing soundex indexes, for example


The presentation also examines index implementation methods that avoid data duplication, to minimize an embedded system’s memory requirements. After the presentation, get your questions answered in live a Q&A session. Register now for the Webinar, Boost Performance and Minimize Footprint with Specialized Data Indexes.
