Results of a study are summarized in which quadtrees were used to encode the regions in three map overlays representing a small area in northern California. Programs were then written to perform various analysis and manipulation tasks on the quadtree-encoded regions. Data is provided on the compactness of the encodings and the efficiency of the programs.
