MySQL 5.6 Reference Manual  /  ...  /  Functions That Create Geometry Values from WKB Values

12.15.4 Functions That Create Geometry Values from WKB Values

These functions take as arguments a BLOB containing a Well-Known Binary (WKB) representation and, optionally, a spatial reference system identifier (SRID). They return the corresponding geometry.

GeomFromWKB() and ST_GeomFromWKB() accept a WKB value of any geometry type as their first argument. Other functions provide type-specific construction functions for construction of geometry values of each geometry type.

These functions also accept geometry objects as returned by the functions in Section 12.15.5, “MySQL-Specific Functions That Create Geometry Values”. Thus, those functions may be used to provide the first argument to the functions in this section.

For a description of WKB format, see Well-Known Binary (WKB) Format.
