MySQL 5.6 Reference Manual  /  Functions and Operators  /  Spatial Analysis Functions

12.15 Spatial Analysis Functions

MySQL provides functions to perform various operations on spatial data. These functions can be grouped into several major categories according to the type of operation they perform:

  • Functions that create geometries in various formats (WKT, WKB, internal)

  • Functions that convert geometries between formats

  • Functions that access qualitative or quantitative properties of a geometry

  • Functions that describe relations between two geometries

  • Functions that create new geometries from existing ones

For general background about MySQL support for using spatial data, see Section 11.5, “Extensions for Spatial Data”.
