    In computational geometry, the bin data structure allows efficient region queries, i.e., if there are some axis-aligned rectangles on a 2D plane, answer the question Given a query rectangle, return all rectangles intersecting it. kd-tree is another data structure that can answer this question efficiently. In the example in the figure, A, B, C, D, E, and F are existing rectangles, the query with the rectangle Q should return C, D, E and F, if we define all rectangles as closed intervals. The data structure partitions a region of the 2D plane into uniform-sized bins. The bounding box of the bins encloses all candidate rectangles to be queried. All the bins are arranged in a 2D array. All the candidates are represented also as 2D arrays. The size of a candidate's array is the number of bins it intersects. For example, in the figure, candidate B has 6 elements arranged in a 3 row by 2 column array because it intersects 6 bins in such an arrangement. Each bin contains the head of a singly linked list. If a candidate intersects a bin, it is chained to the bin's linked list. Each element in a candidate's array is a link node in the corresponding bin's linked list.
