Subject Re: [spatial] Cartesian "Tiers" nomenclature

I would extremely prefer a common well know name instead of Cartensian
tiers. While the API is still in flux changing the name is not that
much of a deal either. Either grid or tiles is fine for me though
while I would prefer the most common of the two - grid seems to be the
better choice though. Yet, should we stick to Cartesian?!

 The thing is, I can't find any reference to such a thing in any place other than Local Lucene
and Patrick's white paper on it.  Most GIS systems seem to either talk about grids or tiles
when describing this capability.
