Abstract

In Chapter 8, we discussed how to perform proximity analysis using a spatial index and associated spatial operators. In this chapter, we describe geometry processing functions, which are also referred to as spatial functions (whenever there is no ambiguity), that complement this functionality. In contrast to the spatial operators, these geometry processing functions
  • Do not require a spatial index

  • Provide more detailed analyses than the spatial operators associated with a spatial index

  • Can appear in the SELECT list (as well as the WHERE clause) of a SQL statement
