Subject: [geometry] Spatial Index, query on rectangle size

My first time I join the community, thanks all contributors for this
library, part of boost.

Hope that I can get some helps.

I'm working on a data issue where I will have a lot of points (says a few
millions), many of them overlaps. Can I use the rtree, push all my
points(2D) inside, and get the group of rectangles where the size is small
enough (I will define how is small enough in my query). Then I iterate from
those small rectangles, get points from them, and to my analyze on those.

So my question is : Is it possible to query the rtree by size of rectangle,
instead of certain concrete geometry form?

Thank you very much.

Kind regards,

Chi Thanh NGUYEN
