(Is “to,es” a mathematical term or just a typo for “times”? ;-)
I think this comparison is apples vs. oranges, as R-tree is a data structure while CouchDB is a program. There is a geospatial index extension for CouchDB (https://github.com/couchbase/geocouch/) which likely uses R-trees internally; if you need to do lots of fast range searches (in one or more dimensions) it would be a good idea to try it out.
