STEndPoint() is the equivalent of STPointN(x.STNumPoints``()).

This method returns null if called on an empty geography instance.


The following example creates a LineString instance with STGeomFromText() and uses STEndPoint() to retrieve the end point of the LineString.

DECLARE @g geography;  
SET @g = geography::STGeomFromText('LINESTRING(-122.360 47.656, -122.343 47.656)', 4326);  
SELECT @g.STEndPoint().ToString();
