Module documentation for 0.2.3

This version can be pinned in stack with:[email protected]:cda5519b813eb2e2499d7fad470063595dd02539ed7765f06dcae615f5bce5f2,3423

This package includes static and dynamic versions of k-d trees, as well as "Map" variants that store data at each point in the k-d tree structure. Supports nearest neighbor, k nearest neighbors, points within a given radius, and points within a given range. To learn to use this package, start with the documentation for the Data.KdTree.Static module.



  • For internal priority queue implementation, use the heap library instead of pqueue library in order to build on ghc 7.10.


  • Relax lower version bound on QuickCheck to 2.5.


  • Relax upper version constraint for MonadRandom (benchmarking code)
  • Add Data.Point2d as dependency of executables so tests and benchmarks can be built from the archive downloaded on Hackage.


  • Lots and lots of renaming all throughout to more closely match terminology used in containers.
  • Removed kdt library dependency on QuickCheck (if not building testing code).
  • Removed testing module Point2d from public API
  • All structures now have Show instance
  • Static variants now have functions for dynamically inserting new points into existing structure, with caveat that these functions do not maintain balanced tree structure.
