Finds the highest value for each cell location on an input grid within
a specified neighborhood and sends it to the corresponding cell
location on the output grid.

Isn't this much more generic than GIS?  Maybe the criteria should be:
 "Would you expect to find extensive discussion on this functionality
within a standard text on spatial data structures?"  Sliding windows and
nice boundary handling seems less "spatial" to me, and much further from
B-trees, quadtress, kd-trees, persistent data structures, etc.  Can you
elaborate your position a bit more?  Sorry if I'm being dense.
