SQL Server return type: geography

CLR return type: SqlGeography


This method always returns null if the spatial reference identifiers (SRIDs) of the geography instances do not match.


The following example uses STUnion() to compute the union of two Polygon instances.

DECLARE @g geography;
DECLARE @h geography;
SET @g = geography::STGeomFromText('POLYGON((-122.358 47.653, -122.348 47.649, -122.348 47.658, -122.358 47.658, -122.358 47.653))', 4326);
SET @h = geography::STGeomFromText('POLYGON((-122.351 47.656, -122.341 47.656, -122.341 47.661, -122.351 47.661, -122.351 47.656))', 4326);
SELECT @g.STUnion(@h).ToString();
