MySQL 8.0 Reference Manual  /  ...  /  GeometryCollection Class

11.5.2.8 GeometryCollection Class

A GeomCollection is a geometry that is a collection of zero or more geometries of any class.

GeomCollection and GeometryCollection are synonymous, with GeomCollection the preferred type name.

All the elements in a geometry collection must be in the same spatial reference system (that is, in the same coordinate system). There are no other constraints on the elements of a geometry collection, although the subclasses of GeomCollection described in the following sections may restrict membership. Restrictions may be based on:

  • Element type (for example, a MultiPoint may contain only Point elements)

  • Dimension

  • Constraints on the degree of spatial overlap between elements
