WL#11087: Ellipsoidal ST_Validate
Affects: Server-8.0 — Status: Complete
ST_Validate currently only supports computations in Cartesian spatial reference systems (SRSs). This WL extends ST_Validate to detect that its parameter is in a geographic (ellipsoidal) SRS and to compute on the ellipsoid. Projected SRSs and SRID 0 will still return the same result as before. If the SRID refers to a geographic SRS, the result will be different. This WL should remove function check_geometry_valid() and class Geomcoll_validity_checker.
