In orthogonal range reporting we are to preprocess N points in d-dimensional space so that the points inside a d-dimensional axis-aligned query box can be reported efficiently. This is a fundamental problem in various fields, including spatial databases and computational geometry. In this paper we provide a number of improvements for three and higher dimensional orthogonal range reporting: In the pointer machine model, we improve all the best previous results, some of which have not seen any improvements in almost two decades. In the I/O-model, we improve the previously known three-dimensional structures and provide the first (non-trivial) structures for four and higher dimensions.
