There are many questions that we might ask about an individual item of spatial data: Where is it? How big is it? What sort of object is it? Where does it start and end? Where does its center lie? In this Chapter, you’ll learn about the methods that SQL Server provides to answer questions such as these. Note that all of the content in this Chapter relates to examining individual items of spatial data, considered in isolation. Methods that analyze the properties of, or relationship between, two or more items of data will be covered in later chapters.
