Modern positioning and locating technologies, e.g., GPS, have generated huge amounts of geo-referenced point data that are crucial to understand environmental and social-economic phenomena. Unfortunately, traditional disk-resident databases are inefficient in handling large-scale point data. In this study, we propose to utilize the massive data parallel processing power of General Purpose computing on Graphics Processing Units (GPGPUs) technologies to index large-scale geo-referenced point data by using parallel primitives for efficiency, simplicity and portability. We have developed a CSPT-P (Constrained Space Partitioning tree for Point data) tree indexing structure that is suitable for parallel construction. Experiment results using a New York City (NYC) taxi trip dataset with nearly 170 million taxi pickup locations have demonstrated a 23X speedup on an Nvidia Quadro 6000 device over a serial CPU implementation on an Intel XEON E5405 processor.
