Warning:
Cockroach Labs will stop providing Assistance Support for this version on May 10, 2022. Prior to that date, upgrade to a more recent version to continue receiving support. For more details, see the Release Support Policy.

A GEOMETRYCOLLECTION is a collection of heterogeneous spatial objects, such as Points, LineStrings, Polygons, or other GEOMETRYCOLLECTIONs. It provides a way of referring to a group of spatial objects as one "thing" so that you can operate on it/them more conveniently using various SQL functions.

Examples

A GeometryCollection can be created from SQL by calling the st_geomfromtext function on a GeometryCollection definition expressed in the Well Known Text (WKT) format as shown below.

SELECT ST_GeomFromText('GEOMETRYCOLLECTION(POINT(0 0), LINESTRING(0 0, 1440 900), POLYGON((0 0, 0 1024, 1024 1024, 1024 0, 0 0)))');
                                                                                                                                                              st_geomfromtext
