# R-Tree multipath search - remember the path?

R-Trees can take several paths to retrieve an item because of overlaps in data being indexed or index structure. However, if we run the same search many times on the same unmodified structure, can we remember the correct path and avoid taking the wrong path?

Maybe caching the correct path? But I'm not so sure that R-Tree implementations do this or that R-Trees fully loaded in memory do this either.
