Indexing and Querying Spatial Data PKpPKlUIOEBPS/sdo_objmigr.htm$### 4 Indexing and Querying Spatial Data

After you have loaded spatial data (discussed in Chapter 3), you should create a spatial index on it to enable efficient query performance using the data. This chapter describes how to:

Create a spatial index (see Section 4.1)

Query spatial data efficiently, based on an understanding of the Oracle Spatial query model and primary and secondary filtering (see Section 4.2)

## 4.1 Creating a Spatial Index

Once data has been loaded into the spatial tables through either bulk or transactional loading, a spatial index (that is, a spatial R-tree index) must be created on the tables for efficient access to the data. For example, the following statement creates a spatial index named

`territory_idx`

using default values for all parameters:CREATE INDEX territory_idx ON territories (territory_geom) INDEXTYPE IS MDSYS.SPATIAL_INDEX;For detailed information about options for creating a spatial index, see the documentation for the CREATE INDEX statement in Chapter 10.

If the index creation does not complete for any reason, the index is invalid and must be deleted with the DROP INDEX <index_name> [FORCE] statement.

Spatial indexes can be built on two, three, or four dimensions of data. The default number of dimensions is two, but if the data has more than two dimensions, you can use the

`sdo_indx_dims`

parameter keyword to specify the number of dimensions on which to build the index. However, if a spatial index has been built on more than two dimensions of a layer, the only spatial operator that can be used against that layer is SDO_FILTER (the primary filter or index-only query), which considers all dimensions. The SDO_RELATE, SDO_NN, and SDO_WITHIN_DISTANCE operators are disabled if the index has been built on more than two dimensions.If the rollback segment is not large enough, an attempt to create a spatial index will fail. The rollback segment should be 100*n bytes, where n is the number of rows of data to be indexed. For example, if the table contains 1 million (1,000,000) rows, the rollback segment size should be 100,000,000 (100 million) bytes.

To ensure an adequate rollback segment, or if you have tried to create a spatial index and received an error that a rollback segment cannot be extended, review (or have a DBA review) the size and structure of the rollback segments. Create a public rollback segment of the appropriate size, and place that rollback segment online. In addition, ensure that any small inappropriate rollback segments are placed offline during large spatial index operations. For information about performing these operations on a rollback segment, see Oracle Database Administrator's Guide.

The system parameter SORT_AREA_SIZE affects the amount of time required to create the index. The SORT_AREA_SIZE value is the maximum amount, in bytes, of memory to use for a sort operation. The optimal value depends on the database size, but a good guideline is to make it at least 1 million bytes when you create a spatial index. To change the SORT_AREA_SIZE value, use the ALTER SESSION statement. For example, to change the value to 20 million bytes:

ALTER SESSION SET SORT_AREA_SIZE = 20000000;The tablespace specified with the

`tablespace`

keyword in the CREATE INDEX statement (or the default tablespace if the`tablespace`

keyword is not specified) is used to hold both the index data table and some transient tables that are created for internal computations. If you specify WORK_TABLESPACE as the tablespace, the transient tables are stored in the work tablespace.For large tables (over 1 million rows), a temporary tablespace may be needed to perform internal sorting operations. The recommended size for this temporary tablespace is 100*n bytes, where n is the number of rows in the table, up to a maximum requirement of 1 gigabyte of temporary tablespace.

To estimate the space that will be needed to create a spatial index, use the SDO_TUNE.ESTIMATE_RTREE_INDEX_SIZE function, described in Chapter 19.

## 4.1.1 Indexing Geodetic Data

To take full advantage of Spatial features, you must index geodetic data using a geodetic R-tree index. Geodetic data consists of geometries that have geodetic SDO_SRID values, reflecting the fact that they are based on a geodetic coordinate system (such as using longitude and latitude) as opposed to a flat or projected plane coordinate system. (Chapter 6 explains coordinate systems and related concepts.) A geodetic index is one that provides the full range of Spatial features with geodetic data. Thus, it is highly recommended that you use a geodetic index with geodetic data.

Only R-tree indexes can be geodetic indexes. Quadtree indexes cannot be geodetic indexes. If you create an R-tree or quadtree index and specify

`'geodetic=false'`

in the CREATE INDEX statement, the index is non-geodetic. The following notes and restrictions apply to non-geodetic indexes:

If you create a non-geodetic index on geodetic data, you cannot use the

`unit`

parameter with the SDO_WITHIN_DISTANCE operator or the SDO_NN_DISTANCE ancillary operator with the SDO_NN operator.If you create a non-geodetic index on projected data that has a projected SDO_SRID value, you can use the full range of Spatial features.

If you create a non-geodetic index on projected data that has a null SDO_SRID value, you cannot use the

`unit`

parameter with the SDO_WITHIN_DISTANCE operator or the SDO_NN_DISTANCE ancillary operator with the SDO_NN operator.For additional information, see the Usage Notes about the

`geodetic`

parameter for the CREATE INDEX statement in Chapter 10.## 4.1.2 Constraining Data to a Geometry Type

When you create or rebuild a spatial index, you can ensure that all geometries that are in the table or that are inserted later are of a specified geometry type. To constrain the data to a geometry type in this way, use the

`layer_gtype`

keyword in the PARAMETERS clause of the CREATE INDEX or ALTER INDEX REBUILD statement, and specify a value from the Geometry Type column of Table 2-1 in Section 2.2.1. For example, to constrain spatial data in a layer to polygons:CREATE INDEX cola_spatial_idx ON cola_markets(shape) INDEXTYPE IS MDSYS.SPATIAL_INDEX PARAMETERS ('layer_gtype=POLYGON');The geometry types in Table 2-1 are considered as a hierarchy when data is checked:

The MULTI forms include the regular form also. For example, specifying

`'layer_gtype=`

`MULTIPOINT'`

allows the layer to include both POINT and MULTIPOINT geometries.COLLECTION allows the layer to include all types of geometries.

## 4.1.3 Creating a Cross-Schema Index

You can create a spatial index on a table that is not in your schema. Assume that user B wants to create a spatial index on column GEOMETRY in table T1 under user A's schema. Follow these steps:

Connect to the database as a privileged user (for example, as SYSTEM), and execute the following statement:

GRANT create table, create sequence to B;Connect as a privileged user or as user A (or have user A connect), and execute the following statement:

GRANT select, index on A.T1 to B;Connect as user B and execute a statement such as the following:

CREATE INDEX t1_spatial_idx on A.T1(geometry) INDEXTYPE IS mdsys.spatial_index;## 4.1.4 Using Partitioned Spatial Indexes

You can create a partitioned spatial index on a partitioned table. This section describes usage considerations specific to Oracle Spatial. For a detailed explanation of partitioned tables and partitioned indexes, see Oracle Database Administrator's Guide.

A partitioned spatial index can provide the following benefits:

Reduced response times for long-running queries, because partitioning reduces disk I/O operations

Reduced response times for concurrent queries, because I/O operations run concurrently on each partition

Easier index maintenance, because of partition-level create and rebuild operations

Indexes on partitions can be rebuilt without affecting the queries on other partitions, and storage parameters for each local index can be changed independent of other partitions.

Parallel query on multiple partition searching

The degree of parallelism is the value from the DEGREE column in the row for the index in the USER_INDEXES view (that is, the value specified or defaulted for the PARALLEL keyword with the CREATE INDEX, ALTER INDEX, or ALTER INDEX REBUILD statement).

Improved query processing in multiprocessor system environments

In a multiprocessor system environment, if a spatial operator is invoked on a table with partitioned spatial index and if multiple partitions are involved in the query, multiple processors can be used to evaluate the query. The number of processors used is determined by the degree of parallelism and the number of partitions used in evaluating the query.

The following restrictions apply to spatial index partitioning:

The partition key for spatial tables must be a scalar value, and must not be a spatial column.

Only range partitioning is supported on the underlying table. Hash and composite partitioning are not currently supported for partitioned spatial indexes.

To create a partitioned spatial index, you must specify the LOCAL keyword. For example:

CREATE INDEX counties_idx ON counties(geometry) INDEXTYPE IS MDSYS.SPATIAL_INDEX LOCAL;In this example, the default values are used for the number and placement of index partitions, namely:

Index partitioning is based on the underlying table partitioning. For each table partition, a corresponding index partition is created.

Each index partition is placed in the default tablespace.

If you do specify parameters for individual partitions, the following considerations apply:

The storage characteristics for each partition can be the same or different for each partition. If they are different, it may enable parallel I/O (if the tablespaces are on different disks) and may improve performance.

The

`sdo_indx_dims`

value must be the same for all partitions.The

`layer_gtype`

parameter value (see Section 4.1.2) used for each partition may be different.To override the default partitioning values, use a CREATE INDEX statement with the following general format:

CREATE INDEX <indexname> ON <table>(<column>) INDEXTYPE IS MDSYS.SPATIAL_INDEX [PARAMETERS ('<spatial-params>, <storage-params>')] LOCAL [( PARTITION <index_partition> PARAMETERS ('<spatial-params>, <storage-params>') [, PARTITION <index_partition> PARAMETERS ('<spatial-params>, <storage-params>')] )]Queries can operate on partitioned tables to perform the query on only one partition. For example:

SELECT * FROM counties PARTITION(p1) WHERE ...<some-spatial-predicate>;Querying on a selected partition may speed up the query and also improve overall throughput when multiple queries operate on different partitions concurrently.

When queries use a partitioned spatial index, the semantics (meaning or behavior) of spatial operators and functions is the same with partitioned and nonpartitioned indexes, except in the case of SDO_NN (nearest neighbor). With SDO_NN, the requested number of geometries is returned for each partition that is affected by the query. For example, if you request the 5 closest restaurants to a point and the spatial index has 4 partitions, SDO_NN returns up to 20 (5*4) geometries. In this case, you must use the ROWNUM pseudocolumn (here,

`WHERE ROWNUM <=5`

) to return the 5 closest restaurants. See the description of the SDO_NN operator in Chapter 11 for more information.## 4.1.5 Exchanging Partitions Including Indexes

You can use the ALTER TABLE statement with the EXCHANGE PARTITION ... INCLUDING INDEXES clause to exchange a spatial table partition and its index partition with a corresponding table and its index. For information about exchanging partitions, see the description of the ALTER TABLE statement in Oracle Database SQL Reference.

This feature can help you to operate more efficiently in a number of situations, such as:

Bringing data into a partitioned table and avoiding the cost of index re-creation.

Managing and creating partitioned indexes. For example, the data could be divided into multiple tables. The index for each table could be built one after the other to minimize the memory and tablespace resources needed during index creation. Alternately, the indexes could be created in parallel in multiple sessions. The tables (along with the indexes) could then be exchanged with the partitions of the original data table.

Managing offline insert operations. New data can be stored in a temporary table and periodically exchanged with a new partition (for example, in a database with historical data).

To exchange partitions including indexes with spatial data and indexes, the two spatial indexes (one on the partition, the other on the table) must be of compatible types. Specifically:

Both indexes must have the same dimensionality (

`sdo_indx_dims`

value).Both indexes must be either geodetic or non-geodetic. (Geodetic and non-geodetic indexes are explained in Section 4.1.1.)

If the indexes are not compatible, an error is raised. The table data is exchanged, but the indexes are not exchanged and the indexes are marked as failed. To use the indexes, you must rebuild them.

## 4.1.6 Export and Import Considerations with Spatial Indexes and Data

If you use the Export utility to export tables with spatial data, the behavior of the operation depends on whether or not the spatial data has been spatially indexed:

If the spatial data has not been spatially indexed, the table data is exported. However, you must update the USER_SDO_GEOM_METADATA view with the appropriate information on the target system.

If the spatial data has been spatially indexed, the table data is exported, the appropriate information is inserted into the USER_SDO_GEOM_METADATA view on the target system, and the spatial index is built on the target system. However, if the insertion into the USER_SDO_GEOM_METADATA view fails (for example, if there is already a USER_SDO_GEOM_METADATA entry for the spatial layer), the spatial index is not built.

If you use the Import utility to import data that has been spatially indexed, the following considerations apply:

If the index on the exported data was created with a

`TABLESPACE`

clause and if the specified tablespace does not exist in the database at import time, the index is not built. (This is different from the behavior with other Oracle indexes, where the index is created in the user's default tablespace if the tablespace specified for the original index does not exist at import time.)If the import operation must be done by a privileged database user, and if the

`FROMUSER`

and`TOUSER`

format is used, the`TOUSER`

user must be granted the CREATE TABLE and CREATE SEQUENCE privileges before the import operation, as shown in the following example:sqlplus system/<password> SQL> grant CREATE TABLE, CREATE SEQUENCE to CHRIS; SQL> exit; imp system/<password> file=spatl_data.dmp fromuser=SCOTT touser=CHRISFor information about using the Export and Import utilities, see Oracle Database Utilities.

## 4.1.7 Distributed Transactions and Spatial Index Consistency

In a distributed transaction, different branches of the transaction can execute in different sessions. The branches can detach from their current session and migrate to another within the transaction scope. To maintain the consistency of Spatial indexes in distributed transactions, you must follow the usage guidelines in this section.

When the first insert, update, or delete operation on a spatial table (one with a spatial index) is performed in a distributed transaction, all subsequent insert, update, or delete operations on the table, as well as any prepare to commit operation (the first branch to prepare a commit), in the transaction should happen in the same session as the first operation. The branches performing these subsequent operations will first have to connect to the session in which the first operation was performed.

For more information about distributed transactions, see Oracle Database Administrator's Guide.

## 4.2 Querying Spatial Data

This section describes how the structures of a Spatial layer are used to resolve spatial queries and spatial joins.

Spatial uses a two-tier query model with primary and secondary filter operations to resolve spatial queries and spatial joins, as explained in Section 1.6. The term two-tier indicates that two distinct operations are performed to resolve queries. If both operations are performed, the exact result set is returned.

You cannot append a database link (dblink) name to the name of a spatial table in a query if a spatial index is defined on that table.

If a spatial index is created in a database that was created using the UTF8 character set, spatial queries that use the spatial index will fail if the system parameter

`NLS_LENGTH_SEMANTICS`

is set to`CHAR`

. For spatial queries to succeed in this case, the`NLS_LENGTH_SEMANTICS`

parameter must be set to`BYTE`

(its default value).## 4.2.1 Spatial Query

In a spatial R-tree index, each geometry is represented by its minimum bounding rectangle (MBR), as explained in Section 1.7.1. Consider the following layer containing several objects in Figure 4-1. Each object is labeled with its geometry name (geom_1 for the line string, geom_2 for the four-sided polygon, geom_3 for the triangular polygon, and geom_4 for the ellipse), and the MBR around each object is represented by a dashed line.

A typical spatial query is to request all objects that lie within a query window, that is, a defined fence or window. A dynamic query window refers to a rectangular area that is not defined in the database, but that must be defined before it is used. Figure 4-2 shows the same geometries as in Figure 4-1, but adds a query window represented by the heavy dotted-line box.

In Figure 4-2, the query window covers parts of geometries geom_1 and geom_2, as well as part of the MBR for geom_3 but none of the actual geom_3 geometry. The query window does not cover any part of the geom_4 geometry or its MBR.

## 4.2.1.1 Primary Filter Operator

The SDO_FILTER operator, described in Chapter 11, implements the primary filter portion of the two-step process involved in the Oracle Spatial query processing model. The primary filter uses the index data to determine only if a set of candidate object pairs may interact. Specifically, the primary filter checks to see if the MBRs of the candidate objects interact, not whether the objects themselves interact. The SDO_FILTER operator syntax is as follows:

SDO_FILTER(geometry1 SDO_GEOMETRY, geometry2 SDO_GEOMETRY, param VARCHAR2)In the preceding syntax:

`geometry1`

is a column of type SDO_GEOMETRY in a table. This column must be spatially indexed.

`geometry2`

is an object of type SDO_GEOMETRY. This object may or may not come from a table. If it comes from a table, it may or may not be spatially indexed.

`param`

is an optional string of type VARCHAR2. It can specify either or both of the`min_resolution`

and`max_resolution`

keywords.The following examples perform a primary filter operation only (with no secondary filter operation). They will return all the geometries shown in Figure 4-2 that have an MBR that interacts with the query window. The result of the following examples are geometries geom_1, geom_2, and geom_3.

Example 4-1 performs a primary filter operation without inserting the query window into a table. The window will be indexed in memory and performance will be very good.

Example 4-1 Primary Filter with a Temporary Query Window

SELECT A.Feature_ID FROM TARGET A WHERE sdo_filter(A.shape, SDO_geometry(2003,NULL,NULL, SDO_elem_info_array(1,1003,3), SDO_ordinate_array(x1,y1, x2,y2)) ) = 'TRUE';In Example 4-1,

`(x1,y1)`

and`(x2,y2)`

are the lower-left and upper-right corners of the query window.In Example 4-2, a transient instance of type SDO_GEOMETRY was constructed for the query window instead of specifying the window parameters in the query itself.

Example 4-2 Primary Filter with a Transient Instance of the Query Window

SELECT A.Feature_ID FROM TARGET A WHERE sdo_filter(A.shape, :theWindow) = 'TRUE';Example 4-3 assumes the query window was inserted into a table called WINDOWS, with an ID of WINS_1.

Example 4-3 Primary Filter with a Stored Query Window

SELECT A.Feature_ID FROM TARGET A, WINDOWS B WHERE B.ID = 'WINS_1' AND sdo_filter(A.shape, B.shape) = 'TRUE';If the B.SHAPE column is not spatially indexed, the SDO_FILTER operator indexes the query window in memory and performance is very good.

## 4.2.1.2 Primary and Secondary Filter Operator

The SDO_RELATE operator, described in Chapter 11, performs both the primary and secondary filter stages when processing a query. The secondary filter ensures that only candidate objects that actually interact are selected. This operator can be used only if a spatial index has been created on two dimensions of data. The syntax of the SDO_RELATE operator is as follows:

SDO_RELATE(geometry1 SDO_GEOMETRY, geometry2 SDO_GEOMETRY, param VARCHAR2)In the preceding syntax:

`geometry1`

is a column of type SDO_GEOMETRY in a table. This column must be spatially indexed.

`geometry2`

is an object of type SDO_GEOMETRY. This object may or may not come from a table. If it comes from a table, it may or may not be spatially indexed.

`param`

is a quoted string with the`mask`

keyword and a valid mask value, and optionally either or both of the`min_resolution`

and`max_resolution`

keywords, as explained in the documentation for the SDO_RELATE operator in Chapter 11.The following examples perform both primary and secondary filter operations. They return all the geometries in Figure 4-2 that lie within or overlap the query window. The result of these examples is objects geom_1 and geom_2.

Example 4-4 performs both primary and secondary filter operations without inserting the query window into a table. The window will be indexed in memory and performance will be very good.

Example 4-4 Secondary Filter Using a Temporary Query Window

SELECT A.Feature_ID FROM TARGET A WHERE sdo_relate(A.shape, SDO_geometry(2003,NULL,NULL, SDO_elem_info_array(1,1003,3), SDO_ordinate_array(x1,y1, x2,y2)), 'mask=anyinteract') = 'TRUE';In Example 4-4,

`(x1,y1)`

and`(x2,y2)`

are the lower-left and upper-right corners of the query window.Example 4-5 assumes the query window was inserted into a table called WINDOWS, with an ID value of WINS_1.

Example 4-5 Secondary Filter Using a Stored Query Window

SELECT A.Feature_ID FROM TARGET A, WINDOWS B WHERE B.ID = 'WINS_1' AND sdo_relate(A.shape, B.shape, 'mask=anyinteract') = 'TRUE';If the( B.SHAPE column is not spatially indexed, the SDO_RELATE operator indexes the query window in memory and performance is very good.

## 4.2.1.3 Within-Distance Operator

The SDO_WITHIN_DISTANCE operator, described in Chapter 11, is used to determine the set of objects in a table that are within n distance units from a reference object. This operator can be used only if a spatial index has been created on two dimensions of data. The reference object may be a transient or persistent instance of SDO_GEOMETRY (such as a temporary query window or a permanent geometry stored in the database). The syntax of the operator is as follows:

SDO_WITHIN_DISTANCE(geometry1 SDO_GEOMETRY, aGeom SDO_GEOMETRY, params VARCHAR2);In the preceding syntax:

`geometry1`

is a column of type SDO_GEOMETRY in a table. This column must be spatially indexed.

`aGeom`

is an instance of type SDO_GEOMETRY.

`params`

is a quoted string of keyword value pairs that determines the behavior of the operator. See the SDO_WITHIN_DISTANCE operator in Chapter 11 for a list of parameters.The following example selects any objects within 1.35 distance units from the query window:

SELECT A.Feature_ID FROM TARGET A WHERE SDO_WITHIN_DISTANCE( A.shape, :theWindow, 'distance=1.35') = 'TRUE';The distance units are based on the geometry coordinate system in use. If you are using a geodetic coordinate system, the units are meters. If no coordinate system is used, the units are the same as for the stored data.

The SDO_WITHIN_DISTANCE operator is not suitable for performing spatial joins. That is, a query such as Find all parks that are within 10 distance units from coastlines will not be processed as an index-based spatial join of the COASTLINES and PARKS tables. Instead, it will be processed as a nested loop query in which each COASTLINES instance is in turn a reference object that is buffered, indexed, and evaluated against the PARKS table. Thus, the SDO_WITHIN_DISTANCE operation is performed n times if there are n rows in the COASTLINES table.

For non-geodetic data, there is an efficient way to accomplish a spatial join that involves buffering all geometries of a layer. This method does not use the SDO_WITHIN_DISTANCE operator. First, create a new table COSINE_BUFS as follows:

CREATE TABLE cosine_bufs UNRECOVERABLE AS SELECT SDO_BUFFER (A.SHAPE, B.DIMINFO, 1.35) FROM COSINE A, USER_SDO_GEOM_METADATA B WHERE TABLE_NAME='COSINES' AND COLUMN_NAME='SHAPE';Next, create a spatial index on the SHAPE column of COSINE_BUFS. Then you can perform the following query:

SELECT /*+ ordered */ a.gid, b.gid FROM TABLE(SDO_JOIN('PARKS', 'SHAPE', 'COSINE_BUFS', 'SHAPE', 'mask=ANYINTERACT')) c, parks a, cosine_bufs b WHERE c.rowid1 = a.rowid AND c.rowid2 = b.rowid;## 4.2.1.4 Nearest Neighbor Operator

The SDO_NN operator, described in Chapter 11, is used to identify the nearest neighbors for a geometry. This operator can be used only if a spatial index has been created on two dimensions of data. The syntax of the operator is as follows:

SDO_NN(geometry1 SDO_GEOMETRY, geometry2 SDO_GEOMETRY, param VARCHAR2 [, number NUMBER]);In the preceding syntax:

`geometry1`

is a column of type SDO_GEOMETRY in a table. This column must be spatially indexed.

`geometry2`

is an instance of type SDO_GEOMETRY.

`param`

is a quoted string of keyword-value pairs that can determine the behavior of the operator, such as how many nearest neighbor geometries are returned. See the SDO_NN operator in Chapter 11 for information about this parameter.

`number`

is the same number used in the call to SDO_NN_DISTANCE. Use this only if the SDO_NN_DISTANCE ancillary operator is included in the call to SDO_NN. See the SDO_NN operator in Chapter 11 for information about this parameter.The following example finds the two objects from the SHAPE column in the COLA_MARKETS table that are closest to a specified point (10,7). (Note the use of the optimizer hint in the SELECT statement, as explained in the Usage Notes for the SDO_NN operator in Chapter 11.)

SELECT /*+ INDEX(cola_markets cola_spatial_idx) */ c.mkt_id, c.name FROM cola_markets c WHERE SDO_NN(c.shape, SDO_geometry(2001, NULL, SDO_point_type(10,7,NULL), NULL, NULL), 'sdo_num_res=2') = 'TRUE';## 4.2.1.5 Spatial Functions

Spatial also supplies functions for determining relationships between geometries, finding information about single geometries, changing geometries, and combining geometries. These functions all take into account two dimensions of source data. If the output value of these functions is a geometry, the resulting geometry will have the same dimensionality as the input geometry, but only the first two dimensions will accurately reflect the result of the operation.

## 4.2.2 Spatial Join

A spatial join is the same as a regular join except that the predicate involves a spatial operator. In Spatial, a spatial join takes place when you compare all geometries of one layer to all geometries of another layer. This is unlike a query window, which compares a single geometry to all geometries of a layer.

Spatial joins can be used to answer questions such as Which highways cross national parks?

The following table structures illustrate how the join would be accomplished for this example:

PARKS( GID VARCHAR2(32), SHAPE SDO_GEOMETRY) HIGHWAYS( GID VARCHAR2(32), SHAPE SDO_GEOMETRY)To perform a spatial join, use the SDO_JOIN operator, which is described in Chapter 11. The following spatial join query, to list the GID column values of highways and parks where a highway interacts with a park, performs a primary filter operation only (

`'mask=FILTER'`

), and thus it returns only approximate results:SELECT /*+ ordered */ a.gid, b.gid FROM TABLE(SDO_JOIN('PARKS', 'SHAPE', 'HIGHWAYS', 'SHAPE', 'mask=FILTER')) c, parks a, highways b WHERE c.rowid1 = a.rowid AND c.rowid2 = b.rowid;The following spatial join query requests the same information as in the preceding example, but it performs both primary and secondary filter operations (

`'mask=ANYINTERACT'`

), and thus it returns exact results:SELECT /*+ ordered */ a.gid, b.gid FROM TABLE(SDO_JOIN('PARKS', 'SHAPE', 'HIGHWAYS', 'SHAPE', 'mask=ANYINTERACT')) c, parks a, highways b WHERE c.rowid1 = a.rowid AND c.rowid2 = b.rowid;## 4.2.3 Cross-Schema Operator Invocation

You can invoke spatial operators on an indexed table that is not in your schema. Assume that user A has a spatial table T1 (with index table IDX_TAB1) with a spatial index defined, that user B has a spatial table T2 (with index table IDX_TAB2) with a spatial index defined, and that user C wants to invoke operators on tables in one or both of the other schemas.

If user C wants to invoke an operator only on T1, user C must perform the following steps:

Connect as user A and execute the following statements:

GRANT select on T1 to C; GRANT select on idx_tab1 to C;Connect as user C and execute a statement such as the following:

SELECT a.gid FROM T1 a WHERE sdo_filter(a.geometry, :theGeometry) = 'TRUE';If user C wants to invoke an operator on both T1 and T2, user C must perform the following steps:

Connect as user A and execute the following statements:

GRANT select on T1 to C; GRANT select on idx_tab1 to C;Connect as user B and execute the following statements:

GRANT select on T2 to C; GRANT select on idx_tab2 to C;Connect as user C and execute a statement such as the following:

SELECT a.gid FROM T1 a, T2 b WHERE b.gid = 5 AND sdo_filter(a.geometry, b.geometry) = 'TRUE';SDO_MIGRATE Package (Upgrading) PK$$PKlUIOEBPS/blafdoc.cssj@charset "utf-8"; /* blafdoc.css Release 4.5 Copyright 2002, 2005, Oracle.

The SDO_MIGRATE.TO_CURRENT subprogram described in this chapter has both procedure and function interfaces. As a procedure, it lets you upgrade spatial geometry tables from previous releases of Spatial; and as a function, it lets you upgrade a single SDO_GEOMETRY object.

SDO_MIGRATE.TO_CURRENT is the only procedure that you should use for upgrading tables. Do not use the SDO_MIGRATE.TO_81X, SDO_MIGRATE.FROM_815_TO_81X, or SDO_MIGRATE.TO_734 procedures, which were documented in previous Spatial releases but are no longer supported.

## SDO_MIGRATE.TO_CURRENT

Format (Any Object-Relational Model Implementation to Current)

column_name IN VARCHAR2

[, commit_int IN NUMBER]);

Format (Single Object-Relational Model Geometry to Current)

SDO_MIGRATE.TO_CURRENT(

) RETURN SDO_GEOMETRY;

Format (Any Relational Model Implementation to Current)

SDO_MIGRATE.TO_CURRENT(

layer IN VARCHAR2,

newtabname IN VARCHAR2,

gidcolumn IN VARCHAR2,

geocolname IN VARCHAR2,

layer_gtype IN VARCHAR2,

updateflag IN VARCHAR2);

Description

Upgrades data from a previous Spatial release to the current release. As a procedure, TO_CURRENT upgrades an entire layer (all geometries in a column); as a function, TO_CURRENT upgrades a single geometry object, which must be of type SDO_GEOMETRY.

For upgrading a layer, the procedure format depends on whether you are upgrading from the Spatial relational model (release 8.1.5 or earlier) or object-relational model (release 8.1.6 or later). See the Usage Notes for the model that applies to you.

You should use this procedure for any spatial layer upgrade. Do not use the SDO_MIGRATE.TO_81X, SDO_MIGRATE.FROM_815_TO_81X, or SDO_MIGRATE.TO_734 procedures, which were documented in previous Spatial releases but are no longer supported.

Parameters

- tabname
Table with geometry objects.

- column_name
Column in

`tabname`

that contains geometry objects. If`column_name`

is not specified or is specified as null, the column containing geometry objects is upgraded.- commit_int
Number of geometries to upgrade before Spatial performs an internal commit operation. If

`commit_int`

is not specified, no internal commit operations are performed during the upgrade.If you specify a

`commit_int`

value, you can use a smaller rollback segment than would otherwise be needed.- geom
Single geometry object to be upgraded to the current release.

- dim
Dimensional information array for the geometry object to be upgraded. The SDO_DIM_ARRAY type is explained in Section 2.6.3.

- layer
Name of the layer to be upgraded.

- newtabname
Name of the new table to which you are upgrading the data.

- gidcolumn
Name of the column in which to store the GID from the old table.

- geocolname
Name of the column in the new table where the geometry objects will be inserted.

- layer_gtype
One of the following values: POINT or NOTPOINT (default).

If the layer you are upgrading is composed solely of point data, set this parameter to POINT for optimal performance; otherwise, set this parameter to NOTPOINT. If you set the value to POINT and the layer contains any nonpoint geometries, the upgrade might produce invalid data.

- updateflag
One of the following values: UPDATE or INSERT (default).

If you are upgrading the layer into an existing populated attribute table, set this parameter to UPDATE; otherwise, set this parameter to INSERT.

Usage Notes for Object-Relational Model Layer and Single Geometry Upgrade

The specified geometry or all geometry objects in the specified layer are upgraded so that their SDO_GTYPE and SDO_ETYPE values are in the format of the current release:

SDO_GTYPE values of 4 digits are created, using the format (dltt) shown in Table 2-1 in Section 2.2.1.

SDO_ETYPE values are as discussed in Section 2.2.4.

Geometries are ordered so that exterior rings are followed by their interior rings, and coordinates are saved in the correct rotation (counterclockwise for exterior rings, and clockwise for interior rings).

Usage Notes for Relational Model Upgrade

Consider the following when using this procedure:

The new table must be created before you call this procedure.

If the data to be upgraded is geodetic, the tolerance value (SDO_TOLERANCE column value in the <layername>_SDODIM table or view) must be expressed in decimal degrees (for example, 0.00000005).

The procedure converts geometries from the relational model to the object-relational model.

A commit operation is performed by this procedure.

If any of the upgrade steps fails, nothing is upgraded for the layer.

`layer`

is the underlying layer name, without the _SDOGEOM suffix.The old SDO_GID is stored in

`gidcolumn`

.SDO_GTYPE values of 4 digits are created, using the format (dltt) shown in Table 2-1 in Section 2.2.1.

SDO_ETYPE values are created, using the values discussed in Section 2.2.4.

The procedure orders geometries so that exterior rings are followed by their interior rings, and it saves coordinates in the correct rotation (counterclockwise for exterior rings, and clockwise for interior rings).

Examples

The following example changes the definitions of geometry objects in the ROADS table from the release 8.1.5 or later format to the format of the current release.

EXECUTE SDO_MIGRATE.TO_CURRENT('ROADS');Extending Spatial Indexing Capabilities PK8i9d9PKlUIOEBPS/sdo_geocode_concepts.htm## 9 Extending Spatial Indexing Capabilities

This chapter shows how to create and use spatial indexes on objects other than a geometry column. In other chapters, the focus is on indexing and querying spatial data that is stored in a single column of type SDO_GEOMETRY. This chapter shows how to:

Embed an SDO_GEOMETRY object in a user-defined object type, and index the geometry attribute of that type (see Section 9.1)

Create and use a function-based index where the function returns an SDO_GEOMETRY object (see Section 9.2)

The techniques in this chapter are intended for experienced and knowledgeable application developers. You should be familiar with the Spatial concepts and techniques described in other chapters. You should also be familiar with, or able to learn about, relevant Oracle database features, such as user-defined data types and function-based indexing.

## 9.1 SDO_GEOMETRY Objects in User-Defined Type Definitions

The SDO_GEOMETRY type can be embedded in a user-defined data type definition. The procedure is very similar to that for using the SDO_GEOMETRY type for a spatial data column:

Create the user-defined data type.

Create a table with a column based on that data type.

Insert data into the table.

Update the USER_SDO_GEOM_METADATA view.

Create the spatial index on the geometry attribute.

Perform queries on the data.

For example, assume that you want to follow the cola markets scenario in the simplified example in Section 2.1, but want to incorporate the market name attribute and the geometry attribute in a single type. First, create the user-defined data type, as in the following example that creates an object type named MARKET_TYPE:

CREATE OR REPLACE TYPE market_type AS OBJECT (name VARCHAR2(32), shape SDO_GEOMETRY); /Create a table that includes a column based on the user-defined type. The following example creates a table named COLA_MARKETS_2 that will contain the same information as the COLA_MARKETS table used in the example in Section 2.1.

CREATE TABLE cola_markets_2 ( mkt_id NUMBER PRIMARY KEY, market MARKET_TYPE);Insert data into the table, using the object type name as a constructor. For example:

INSERT INTO cola_markets_2 VALUES( 1, MARKET_TYPE('cola_a', SDO_GEOMETRY( 2003, -- two-dimensional polygon NULL, NULL, SDO_ELEM_INFO_ARRAY(1,1003,3), -- one rectangle (1003 = exterior) SDO_ORDINATE_ARRAY(1,1, 5,7) -- only 2 points needed to -- define rectangle (lower left and upper right) ) ) );Update the USER_SDO_GEOM_METADATA view, using dot-notation to specify the column name and spatial attribute. The following example specifies MARKET.SHAPE as the COLUMN_NAME (explained in Section 2.6.2) in the metadata view.

INSERT INTO user_sdo_geom_metadata (TABLE_NAME, COLUMN_NAME, DIMINFO, SRID) VALUES ( 'cola_markets_2', 'market.shape', SDO_DIM_ARRAY( -- 20X20 grid SDO_DIM_ELEMENT('X', 0, 20, 0.005), SDO_DIM_ELEMENT('Y', 0, 20, 0.005) ), NULL -- SRID );Create the spatial index, specifying the column name and spatial attribute using dot-notation. For example.

CREATE INDEX cola_spatial_idx_2 ON cola_markets_2(market.shape) INDEXTYPE IS MDSYS.SPATIAL_INDEX;Perform queries on the data, using dot-notation to refer to attributes of the user-defined type. The following simple query returns information associated with the cola market named

`cola_a`

.SELECT c.mkt_id, c.market.name, c.market.shape FROM cola_markets_2 c WHERE c.market.name = 'cola_a';The following query returns information associated with all geometries that have any spatial interaction with a specified query window, namely, the rectangle with lower-left coordinates (4,6) and upper-right coordinates (8,8).

SELECT c.mkt_id, c.market.name, c.market.shape FROM cola_markets_2 c WHERE SDO_RELATE(c.market.shape, SDO_GEOMETRY(2003, NULL, NULL, SDO_ELEM_INFO_ARRAY(1,1003,3), SDO_ORDINATE_ARRAY(4,6, 8,8)), 'mask=anyinteract' = 'TRUE';## 9.2 SDO_GEOMETRY Objects in Function-Based Indexes

A function-based spatial index facilitates queries that use locational information (of type SDO_GEOMETRY) returned by a function or expression. In this case, the spatial index is created based on the precomputed values returned by the function or expression.

If you are not already familiar with function-based indexes, see the following for detailed explanations of their benefits, options, and requirements, as well as usage examples:

The procedure for using an SDO_GEOMETRY object in a function-based index is as follows:

Create the function that returns an SDO_GEOMETRY object.

The function must be declared as DETERMINISTIC.

If the spatial data table does not already exist, create it, and insert data into the table.

Update the USER_SDO_GEOM_METADATA view.

Create the spatial index.

For a function-based spatial index, the number of parameters must not exceed 32.

Perform queries on the data.

The rest of this section describes two examples of using function-based indexes. In both examples, a function is created that returns an SDO_GEOMETRY object, and a spatial index is created on that function. In the first example, the input parameters to the function are a standard Oracle data type (NUMBER). In the second example, the input to the function is a user-defined object type.

## 9.2.1 Example: Function with Standard Types

In the following example, the input parameters to the function used for the function-based index are standard numeric values (longitude and latitude).

Assume that you want to create a function that returns the longitude and latitude of a point and to use that function in a spatial index. First, create the function, as in the following example that creates a function named GET_LONG_LAT_PT:

-- Create a function to return a point geometry (SDO_GTYPE = 2001) with -- input of 2 numbers: longitude and latitude (SDO_SRID = 8307, for -- "Longitude / Latitude (WGS 84)", probably the most widely used -- coordinate system, and the one used for GPS devices. -- Specify DETERMINISTIC for the function. create or replace function get_long_lat_pt(longitude in number, latitude in number) return SDO_GEOMETRY deterministic is begin return sdo_geometry(2001, 8307, sdo_point_type(longitude, latitude, NULL),NULL, NULL); end; /If the spatial data table does not already exist, create the table and add data to it, as in the following example that creates a table named LONG_LAT_TABLE:

create table LONG_LAT_TABLE (longitude number, latitude number, name varchar2(32)); insert into LONG_LAT_TABLE values (10,10, 'Place1'); insert into LONG_LAT_TABLE values (20,20, 'Place2'); insert into LONG_LAT_TABLE values (30,30, 'Place3');Update the USER_SDO_GEOM_METADATA view, using dot-notation to specify the schema name and function name. The following example specifies SCOTT.GET_LONG_LAT_PT(LONGITUDE,LATITUDE) as the COLUMN_NAME (explained in Section 2.6.2) in the metadata view.

-- Set up the metadata entry for this table. -- The column name sets up the function on top -- of the two columns used in this function, -- along with the owner of the function. insert into user_sdo_geom_metadata values('LONG_LAT_TABLE', 'scott.get_long_lat_pt(longitude,latitude)', sdo_dim_array( sdo_dim_element('Longitude', -180, 180, 0.005), sdo_dim_element('Latitude', -90, 90, 0.005)), 8307);Create the spatial index, specifying the function name with parameters. For example:

create index LONG_LAT_TABLE_IDX on LONG_LAT_TABLE(get_long_lat_pt(longitude,latitude)) indextype is mdsys.spatial_index;Perform queries on the data. In the following example, the two queries accomplish the same thing; however, the first query does not use a user-defined function (instead using a constructor to specify the point), whereas the second query uses the function to specify the point.

-- First query: call sdo_filter with an SDO_GEOMETRY constructor select name from LONG_LAT_TABLE a where sdo_filter(get_long_lat_pt(a.longitude,a.latitude), sdo_geometry(2001, 8307, sdo_point_type(10,10,NULL), NULL, NULL) )='TRUE'; -- Second query: call sdo_filter with the function that returns an sdo_geometry select name from LONG_LAT_TABLE a where sdo_filter(get_long_lat_pt(a.longitude,a.latitude), get_long_lat_pt(10,10) )='TRUE';## 9.2.2 Example: Function with a User-Defined Object Type

In the following example, the input parameter to the function used for the function-based index is an object of a user-defined type that includes the longitude and latitude.

Assume that you want to create a function that returns the longitude and latitude of a point and to create a spatial index on that function. First, create the user-defined data type, as in the following example that creates an object type named LONG_LAT and its member function GetGeometry:

create type long_lat as object ( longitude number, latitude number, member function GetGeometry(SELF in long_lat) RETURN SDO_GEOMETRY DETERMINISTIC) / create or replace type body long_lat as member function GetGeometry(self in long_lat) return SDO_GEOMETRY is begin return sdo_geometry(2001, 8307, sdo_point_type(longitude, latitude, NULL), NULL,NULL); end; end; /If the spatial data table does not already exist, create the table and add data to it, as in the following example that creates a table named TEST_LONG_LAT:

create table test_long_lat (location long_lat, name varchar2(32)); insert into test_long_lat values (long_lat(10,10), 'Place1'); insert into test_long_lat values (long_lat(20,20), 'Place2'); insert into test_long_lat values (long_lat(30,30), 'Place3');Update the USER_SDO_GEOM_METADATA view, using dot-notation to specify the schema name, table name, and function name and parameter value. The following example specifies SCOTT.LONG_LAT.GetGeometry(LOCATION) as the COLUMN_NAME (explained in Section 2.6.2) in the metadata view.

insert into user_sdo_geom_metadata values('test_long_lat', 'scott.long_lat.GetGeometry(location)', sdo_dim_array( sdo_dim_element('Longitude', -180, 180, 0.005), sdo_dim_element('Latitude', -90, 90, 0.005)), 8307);Create the spatial index, specifying the column name and function name using dot-notation. For example:

create index test_long_lat_idx on test_long_lat(location.GetGeometry()) indextype is mdsys.spatial_index;Perform queries on the data. The following query performs a primary filter operation, asking for the names of geometries that are likely to interact spatially with point (10,10).

SELECT a.name FROM test_long_lat a WHERE SDO_FILTER(a.location.GetGeometry(), SDO_GEOMETRY(2001, 8307, SDO_POINT_TYPE(10,10,NULL), NULL, NULL) ) = 'TRUE';Geocoding Address Data PK`i[GPKlUIOEBPS/rt_mbr.gif>GIF89a6???333fff̙%%%222```"""sss;;;{{{!!!)))...nnn]]]TTTbbbꌌKKK***777CCC&&&wwwYYY666eee\\\:::iii鐐jjjaaavvvXXXPPPDDDȩHHH,6 ÛΩ## 5 Geocoding Address Data

Geocoding is the process of associating spatial locations (longitude and latitude coordinates) with postal addresses. This chapter includes the following major sections:

## 5.1 Concepts for Geocoding

This section describes concepts that you must understand before you use the Spatial geocoding capabilities.

## 5.1.1 Address Representation

Addresses to be geocoded can be represented either as formatted addresses or unformatted addresses.

A formatted address is described by a set of attributes for various parts of the address, which can include some or all of those shown in Table 5-1.

Table 5-1 Attributes for Formal Address Representation

Address Attribute Description Name

Place name (optional).

Intersecting street

Intersecting street name (optional).

Street

Street address, including the house or building number, street name, street type (Street, Road, Blvd, and so on), and possibly other information.

In the current release, the first four characters of the street name must match a street name in the geocoding data for there to be a potential street name match.

Settlement

The lowest-level administrative area to which the address belongs. In most cases it is the city. In some European countries, the settlement can be an area within a large city, in which case the large city is the municipality.

Municipality

The administrative area above settlement. Municipality is not used for United States addresses. In European countries where cities contain settlements, the municipality is the city.

Region

The administrative area above municipality (if applicable), or above settlement if municipality does not apply. In the United States, the region is the state; in some other countries, the region is the province.

Postal code

Postal code (optional if administrative area information is provided). In the United States, the postal code is the 5-digit ZIP code.

Postal add-on code

String appended to the postal code. In the United States, the postal add-on code is typically the last four numbers of a 9-digit ZIP code specified in "5-4" format.

Country

The country name or ISO country code.

Formatted addresses are specified using the SDO_GEO_ADDR data type, which is described in Section 5.2.1.

An unformatted address is described using lines with information in the postal address format for the relevant country. The address lines must contain information essential for geocoding, and they might also contain information that is not needed for geocoding (something that is common in unprocessed postal addresses). An unformatted address is stored as an array of strings. For example, an address might consist of the following strings: '22 Monument Square' and 'Concord, MA 01742'.

Unformatted addresses are specified using the SDO_KEYWORDARRAY data type, which is described in Section 5.2.3.

## 5.1.2 Match Modes

The match mode for a geocoding operation determines how closely the attributes of an input address must match the data being used for the geocoding. Input addresses can include different ways of representing the same thing (such as Street and the abbreviation St), and they can include minor errors (such as the wrong postal code, even though the street address and city are correct and the street address is unique within the city).

You can require an exact match between the input address and the data used for geocoding, or you can relax the requirements for some attributes so that geocoding can be performed despite certain discrepancies or errors in the input addresses. Table 5-2 lists the match modes and their meanings. Use a value from this table with the

`MatchMode`

attribute of the SDO_GEO_ADDR data type (described in Section 5.2.1) and for the`match_mode`

parameter of a geocoding function or procedure.Table 5-2 Match Modes for Geocoding Operations

Match Mode Description EXACT

All attributes of the input address must match the data used for geocoding. However, if the house or building number, base name (street name), street type, street prefix, and street suffix do not all match the geocoding data, a location in the first match found in the following is returned: postal code, city or town (settlement) within the state, and state. For example, if the street name is incorrect but a valid postal code is specified, a location in the postal code is returned.

RELAX_STREET_TYPE

The street type can be different from the data used for geocoding. For example, if Main St is in the data used for geocoding, Main Street would also match that, as would Main Blvd if there was no Main Blvd and no other street type named Main in the relevant area.

RELAX_POI_NAME

The name of the point of interest does not have to match the data used for geocoding. For example, if Jones State Park is in the data used for geocoding, Jones State Pk and Jones Park would also match as long as there were no ambiguities or other matches in the data.

RELAX_HOUSE_NUMBER

The house or building number and street type can be different from the data used for geocoding. For example, if 123 Main St is in the data used for geocoding, 123 Main Lane and 124 Main St would also match as long as there were no ambiguities or other matches in the data.

RELAX_BASE_NAME

The base name of the street, the house or building number, and the street type can be different from the data used for geocoding. For example, if Pleasant Valley is the base name of a street in the data used for geocoding, Pleasant Vale would also match as long as there were no ambiguities or other matches in the data.

RELAX_POSTAL_CODE

The postal code (if provided), base name, house or building number, and street type can be different from the data used for geocoding.

RELAX_BUILTUP_AREA

The address can be outside the city specified as long as it is within the same county. Also includes the characteristics of RELAX_POSTAL_CODE.

RELAX_ALL

Equivalent to RELAX_BUILTUP_AREA.

DEFAULT

Equivalent to RELAX_BASE_NAME.

## 5.1.3 Match Codes

The match code is a number indicating which input address attributes matched the data used for geocoding. The match code is stored in the

`MatchCode`

attribute of the output SDO_GEO_ADDR object (described in Section 5.2.1).Table 5-3 lists the possible match code values.

Table 5-3 Match Codes for Geocoding Operations

Match Code Description 1

Exact match: the city name, postal code, street base name, street type (and suffix or prefix or both, if applicable), and house or building number match the data used for geocoding.

2

The city name, postal code, street base name, and house or building number match the data used for geocoding, but the street type, suffix, or prefix does not match.

3

The city name, postal code, and street base name match the data used for geocoding, but the house or building number does not match.

4

The city name and postal code match the data used for geocoding, but the street address does not match.

10

The city name matches the data used for geocoding, but the postal code does not match.

11

The postal code matches the data used for geocoding, but the city name does not match.

## 5.1.4 Error Messages for Output Geocoded Addresses

For an output geocoded address, the

`ErrorMessage`

attribute of the SDO_GEO_ADDR object (described in Section 5.2.1) contains a string that indicates which address attributes have been matched against the data used for geocoding. Before the geocoding operation begins, the string is set to the value`???????????281C??`

; and the value is modified to reflect which attributes have been matched.Table 5-4 lists the character positions in the string and the address attribute corresponding to each position. It also lists the character value that the position is set to if the attribute is matched.

## 5.2 Data Types for Geocoding

This section describes the data types specific to geocoding functions and procedures.

## 5.2.1 SDO_GEO_ADDR Type

The SDO_GEO_ADDR object type is used to describe an address. When a geocoded address is output by an SDO_GCDR function or procedure, it is stored as an object of type SDO_GEO_ADDR.

Table 5-5 lists the attributes of the SDO_GEO_ADDR type. Not all attributes will be relevant in any given case. The attributes used for a returned geocoded address depend on the geographical context of the input address, especially the country.

The SDO_ADDR_ARRAY type is a VARRAY of SDO_GEO_ADDR objects (described in Section 5.2.1) used to store geocoded address results. Multiple address objects can be returned when multiple addresses are matched as a result of a geocoding operation.

The SDO_ADDR_ARRAY type is defined as follows:

CREATE TYPE sdo_addr_array AS VARRAY(1000) OF sdo_geo_addr;## 5.2.3 SDO_KEYWORDARRAY Type

The SDO_KEYWORDARRAY type is a VARRAY of VARCHAR2 strings used to store address lines for unformatted addresses. (Formatted and unformatted addresses are described in Section 5.1.1.)

The SDO_KEYWORDARRAY type is defined as follows:

CREATE TYPE sdo_keywordarray AS VARRAY(10000) OF VARCHAR2(9000);## 5.3 Using the Geocoding Capabilities

To use the Oracle Spatial geocoding capabilities, you must use data provided by a geocoding vendor, and the data must be in the format supported by the Oracle Spatial geocoding feature. For information about getting and loading this data, go to the Spatial page of the Oracle Technology Network (OTN):

`http://www.oracle.com/technology/products/spatial/`

Find the link for geocoding, and follow the instructions.

To geocode an address using the geocoding data, use the SDO_GCDR PL/SQL package subprograms, which are documented in Chapter 14:

The SDO_GCDR.GEOCODE function geocodes an unformatted address to return an SDO_GEO_ADDR object.

The SDO_GCDR.GEOCODE_ADDR function geocodes an input address using attributes in an SDO_GEO_ADDR object, and returns the first matched address as an SDO_GEO_ADDR object.

The SDO_GCDR.GEOCODE_ADDR_ALL function geocodes an input address using attributes in an SDO_GEO_ADDR object, and returns matching addresses as an SDO_ADDR_ARRAY object.

The SDO_GCDR.GEOCODE_AS_GEOMETRY function geocodes an unformatted address to return an SDO_GEOMETRY object.

The SDO_GCDR.GEOCODE_ALL function geocodes all addresses associated with an unformatted address and returns the result as an SDO_ADDR_ARRAY object (an array of address objects).

The SDO_GCDR.REVERSE_GEOCODE function reverse geocodes a location, specified by its spatial geometry object and country, and returns the result as an SDO_GEO_ADDR object.

## 5.4 Geocoding from a Place Name

If you know a place name (point of interest) but not its locality details, you can create a PL/SQL function to construct an SDO_GEO_ADDR object from

`placename`

and`country`

input parameters, as shown in Example 5-2, which creates a function named`create_addr_from_placename`

. The SELECT statement in this example uses the SDO_GCDR.GEOCODE_ADDR function to geocode the address constructed using the`create_addr_from_placename`

function.Example 5-2 Geocoding from a Place Name and Country

create or replace function create_addr_from_placename( placename varchar2, country varchar2) return sdo_geo_addr as addr sdo_geo_addr ; begin addr := sdo_geo_addr() ; addr.country := country ; addr.placename := placename ; addr.matchmode := 'default' ; return addr ; end; / SELECT sdo_gcdr.geocode_addr('SCOTT', create_addr_from_placename('CALIFORNIA PACIFIC MEDICAL CTR', 'US')) FROM DUAL;If you know at least some of the locality information, such as settlement, region, and postal code, you can get better performance if you can provide such information. Example 5-3 provides an alternate version of the

`create_addr_from_placename`

function that accepts additional parameters. To call this version of the function, specify actual values for the placename and country parameters, and specify an actual value or a null value for each of the other input parameters.Example 5-3 Geocoding from a Place Name, Country, and Other Fields

create or replace function create_addr_from_placename( placename varchar2, city varchar2, state varchar2, postalcode varchar2, country varchar2) return sdo_geo_addr as addr sdo_geo_addr ; begin addr := sdo_geo_addr() ; addr.settlement := city ; addr.region := state ; addr.postalcode := postalcode ; addr.country := country ; addr.placename := placename ; addr.matchmode := 'default' ; return addr ; end; / SELECT sdo_gcdr.geocode_addr('SCOTT', create_addr_from_placename('CALIFORNIA PACIFIC MEDICAL CTR', 'san francisco', 'ca', null, 'US')) FROM DUAL;## 5.5 Data Structures for Geocoding

Oracle uses the following tables for geocoding:

GC_PARSER_PROFILES

GC_PARSER_PROFILEAFS

GC_COUNTRY_PROFILE

GC_AREA_<suffix>

GC_POSTAL_CODE_<suffix>

GC_ROAD_SEGMENT_<suffix>

GC_ROAD_<suffix>

GC_POI_<suffix>

GC_INTERSECTION_<suffix>

The GC_PARSER_PROFILES and GC_PARSER_PROFILEAFS tables store address format definitions of all supported counties. These tables are used by the internal address parser in parsing postal addresses into addressing fields. The data for these two tables is provided by Oracle. The remaining tables store geocoding data provided by data vendors.

Each user that owns the tables containing geocoding data (that is, each user that can be specified with the

`username`

parameter in a call to an SDO_GCDR subprogram) must have one GC_PARSER_PROFILES table, one GC_PARSER_PROFILEAFS table, and one GC_COUNTRY_PROFILE table. Each such user can have multiple sets of the other tables (GC_xxx_<suffix>). Each set of tables whose names end with the same suffix stores geocoding data of a country. For example, the following set of tables can be used to store geocoding data of the United States:

GC_AREA_US

GC_POSTAL_CODE_US

GC_ROAD_SEGMENT_US

GC_ROAD_US

GC_POI_US

GC_INTERSECTION_US

Geocoding data of one country cannot be stored in more than one set of those tables. The table suffix is defined by data venders and is specified in the GC_TABLE_SUFFIX column in the GC_COUNTRY_PROFILE table (described in Section 5.5.2).

The following sections describe the vendor-supplied tables that store geocoding data, in alphabetical order by table name.

## 5.5.1 GC_AREA_<suffix> Table

The GC_AREA_<suffix> table (for example, CG_AREA_US) stores administration area information for the country associated with the table name suffix. This table contains one row for each administration area, and it contains the columns shown in Table 5-6.

Linear referencing is a natural and convenient means to associate attributes or events to locations or portions of a linear feature. It has been widely used in transportation applications (such as for highways, railroads, and transit routes) and utilities applications (such as for gas and oil pipelines). The major advantage of linear referencing is its capability of locating attributes and events along a linear feature with only one parameter (usually known as measure) instead of two (such as longitude/latitude or x/y in Cartesian space). Sections of a linear feature can be referenced and created dynamically by indicating the start and end locations along the feature without explicitly storing them.

The linear referencing system (LRS) application programming interface (API) in Oracle Spatial provides server-side LRS capabilities at the cartographic level. The linear measure information is directly integrated into the Oracle Spatial geometry structure. The Oracle Spatial LRS API provides support for dynamic segmentation, and it serves as a groundwork for third-party or middle-tier application development for virtually any linear referencing methods and models in any coordinate system.

For an example of LRS, see Section 7.7. However, you may want to read the rest of this chapter first, to understand the concepts that the example illustrates.

For reference information about LRS functions and procedures, see Chapter 16.

If you have LRS data from a previous release of Spatial, see Section A.1 for information about upgrading LRS data.

This chapter contains the following major sections:

## 7.1 Terms and Concepts

This section explains important terms and concepts related to linear referencing support in Oracle Spatial.

## 7.1.1 Geometric Segments (LRS Segments)

Geometric segments are basic LRS elements in Oracle Spatial. A geometric segment can be any of the following:

Line string: an ordered, nonbranching, and continuous geometry (for example, a simple road)

Multiline string: nonconnected line strings (for example, a highway with a gap caused by a lake or a bypass road)

Polygon (for example, a racetrack or a scenic tour route that starts and ends at the same point)

A geometric segment must contain at least start and end measures for its start and end points. Measures of points of interest (such as highway exits) on the geometric segments can also be assigned. These measures are either assigned by users or derived from existing geometric segments. Figure 7-1 shows a geometric segment with four line segments and one arc. Points on the geometric segment are represented by triplets (x, y, m), where x and y describe the location and m denotes the measure (with each measure value underlined in Figure 7-1).

## 7.1.2 Shape Points

Shape points are points that are specified when an LRS segment is constructed, and that are assigned measure information. In Oracle Spatial, a line segment is represented by its start and end points, and an arc is represented by three points: start, middle, and end points of the arc. You must specify these points as shape points, but you can also specify other points as shape points if you need measure information stored for these points (for example, an exit in the middle of a straight part of the highway).

Thus, shape points can serve one or both of the following purposes: to indicate the direction of the segment (for example, a turn or curve), and to identify a point of interest for which measure information is to be stored.

Shape points might not directly relate to mileposts or reference posts in LRS; they are used as internal reference points. The measure information of shape points is automatically populated when you define the LRS segment using the SDO_LRS.DEFINE_GEOM_SEGMENT procedure, which is described in Chapter 16.

## 7.1.3 Direction of a Geometric Segment

The direction of a geometric segment is indicated from the start point of the geometric segment to the end point. The direction is determined by the order of the vertices (from start point to end point) in the geometry definition. Measures of points on a geometric segment always either increase or decrease along the direction of the geometric segment.

## 7.1.4 Measure (Linear Measure)

The measure of a point along a geometric segment is the linear distance (in the measure dimension) to the point measured from the start point (for increasing values) or end point (for decreasing values) of the geometric segment. The measure information does not necessarily have to be of the same scale as the distance. However, the linear mapping relationship between measure and distance is always preserved.

Some LRS functions use offset instead of measure to represent measured distance along linear features. Although some other linear referencing systems might use offset to mean what the Oracle Spatial LRS refers to as measure, offset has a different meaning in Oracle Spatial from measure, as explained in Section 7.1.5.

## 7.1.5 Offset

The offset of a point along a geometric segment is the perpendicular distance between the point and the geometric segment. Offsets are positive if the points are on the left side along the segment direction and are negative if they are on the right side. Points are on a geometric segment if their offsets to the segment are zero.

The unit of measurement for an offset is the same as for the coordinate system associated with the geometric segment. For geodetic data, the default unit of measurement is meters.

Figure 7-2 shows how a point can be located along a geometric segment with measure and offset information. By assigning an offset together with a measure, it is possible to locate not only points that are on the geometric segment, but also points that are perpendicular to the geometric segment.

## 7.1.6 Measure Populating

Any unassigned measures of a geometric segment are automatically populated based upon their distance distribution. This is done before any LRS operations for geometric segments with unknown measures (NULL in Oracle Spatial). The resulting geometric segments from any LRS operations return the measure information associated with geometric segments. The measure of a point on the geometric segment can be obtained based upon a linear mapping relationship between its previous and next known measures or locations. See the algorithm representation in Figure 7-3 and the example in Figure 7-4.

Measures are evenly spaced between assigned measures. However, the assigned measures for points of interest on a geometric segment do not need to be evenly spaced. This could eliminate the problem of error accumulation and account for inaccuracy of data source.

Moreover, the assigned measures do not even need to reflect actual distances (for example, they can reflect estimated driving time); they can be any valid values within the measure range. Figure 7-5 shows the measure population that results when assigned measure values are not proportional and reflect widely varying gaps.

In all cases, measure populating is done in an incremental fashion along the segment direction. This improves the performance of current and subsequent LRS operations.

## 7.1.7 Measure Range of a Geometric Segment

The start and end measures of a geometric segment define the linear measure range of the geometric segment. Any valid LRS measures of a geometric segment must fall within its linear measure range.

## 7.1.8 Projection

The projection of a point along a geometric segment is the point on the geometric segment with the minimum distance to the specified point. The measure information of the resulting point is also returned in the point geometry.

## 7.1.9 LRS Point

LRS points are points with linear measure information along a geometric segment. A valid LRS point is a point geometry with measure information.

All LRS point data must be stored in the SDO_ELEM_INFO_ARRAY and SDO_ORDINATE_ARRAY, and cannot be stored in the SDO_POINT field in the SDO_GEOMETRY definition of the point.

## 7.1.10 Linear Features

Linear features are any spatial objects that can be treated as a logical set of linear segments. Examples of linear features are highways in transportation applications and pipelines in utility industry applications. The relationship of linear features, geometric segments, and LRS points is shown in Figure 7-6, where a single linear feature consists of three geometric segments, and three LRS points are shown on the first segment.

## 7.1.11 Measures with Multiline Strings and Polygons with Holes

With a multiline string or polygon with hole LRS geometry, the SDO_LRS.DEFINE_GEOM_SEGMENT procedure and SDO_LRS.CONVERT_TO_LRS_GEOM function by default assign the same measure value to the end point of one segment and the start point (separated by a gap) of the next segment, although you can later assign different measure values to points. Thus, by default there will duplicate measure values in different segments for such geometries. In such cases, LRS subprograms use the first point with a specified measure, except when doing so would result in an invalid geometry.

For example, assume that in a multiline string LRS geometry, the first segment is from measures 0 through 100 and the second segment is from measures 100 through 150. If you use the SDO_LRS.LOCATE_PT function to find the point at measure 100, the returned point will be at measure 100 in the first segment. If you use the SDO_LRS.CLIP_GEOM_SEGMENT, SDO_LRS.DYNAMIC_SEGMENT, or SDO_LRS.OFFSET_GEOM_SEGMENT function to return the geometry object between measures 75 and 125, the result is a multiline string geometry consisting of two segments. If you use the same function to return the geometry object between measures 100 and 125, the point at measure 100 in the first segment is ignored, and the result is a line string along the second segment from measures 100 through 125.

## 7.2 LRS Data Model

The Oracle Spatial LRS data model incorporates measure information into its geometry representation at the point level. The measure information is directly integrated into the Oracle Spatial model. To accomplish this, an additional measure dimension must be added to the Oracle Spatial metadata.

Oracle Spatial LRS support affects the Spatial metadata and data (the geometries). Example 7-1 shows how a measure dimension can be added to two-dimensional geometries in the Spatial metadata. The measure dimension must be the last element of the SDO_DIM_ARRAY in a spatial object definition (shown in bold in Example 7-1).

Example 7-1 Including LRS Measure Dimension in Spatial Metadata

`INSERT INTO user_sdo_geom_metadata (TABLE_NAME, COLUMN_NAME, DIMINFO, SRID) VALUES( 'LRS_ROUTES', 'GEOMETRY', SDO_DIM_ARRAY ( SDO_DIM_ELEMENT('X', 0, 20, 0.005), SDO_DIM_ELEMENT('Y', 0, 20, 0.005), SDO_DIM_ELEMENT('M', 0, 100, 0.005)), NULL);`

After adding the new measure dimension, geometries with measure information such as geometric segments and LRS points can be represented. An example of creating a geometric segment with three line segments is shown in Figure 7-7.

In Figure 7-7, the geometric segment has the following definition (with measure values underlined):

SDO_GEOMETRY(3302, NULL, NULL, SDO_ELEM_INFO_ARRAY(1,2,1), SDO_ORDINATE_ARRAY(5,10,0, 20,5,NULL, 35,10,NULL, 55,10,100))Whenever a geometric segment is defined, its start and end measures must be defined or derived from some existing geometric segment. The unsigned measures of all shape points on a geometric segment will be automatically populated.

The LRS API works with geometries in formats of Oracle Spatial before release 8.1.6, but the resulting geometries will be converted to the Oracle Spatial release 8.1.6 or later format, specifically with 4-digit SDO_GTYPE and SDO_ETYPE values. For example, in Oracle Spatial release 8.1.6 and later, the geometry type (SDO_GTYPE) of a spatial object includes the number of dimensions of the object as the first digit of the SDO_GTYPE value. Thus, the SDO_GTYPE value of a point is 1 in the format before release 8.1.6 but 2001 in the release 8.1.6 format (the number of dimensions of the point is 2). However, an LRS point (which includes measure information) has three dimensions, and thus the SDO_GTYPE of any point geometry used with an LRS function must be 3301.

## 7.3 Indexing of LRS Data

If LRS data has four dimensions (three plus the M dimension) and if you need to index all three non-measure dimensions, you must use a spatial R-tree index to index the data, and you must specify PARAMETERS('sdo_indx_dims=3') in the CREATE INDEX statement to ensure that the first three dimensions are indexed. Note, however, that if you specify an

`sdo_indx_dims`

value of 3 or higher, the only Spatial operator that can be used on the indexed geometries is SDO_FILTER; the other operators described in Chapter 11 cannot be used. (The default value for the`sdo_indx_dims`

keyword is 2, which would cause only the first two dimensions to be indexed.) For example, if the dimensions are X, Y, Z, and M, specify`sdo_indx_dims=3`

to index the X, Y, and Z dimensions, but not the measure (M) dimension. Do not include the measure dimension in a spatial index, because this causes additional processing overhead and produces no benefit.Information about the CREATE INDEX statement and its parameters and keywords is in Chapter 10.

## 7.4 3D Formats of LRS Functions

Most LRS functions have formats that end in _3D: for example, DEFINE_GEOM_SEGMENT_3D, CLIP_GEOM_SEGMENT_3D, FIND_MEASURE_3D, and LOCATE_PT_3D. If a function has a 3D format, it is identified in the Usage Notes for the function in Chapter 16.

The 3D formats are supported only for line string and multiline string geometries. The 3D formats should be used only when the geometry object has four dimensions and the fourth dimension is the measure (for example, X, Y, Z, and M), and only when you want the function to consider the first three dimensions (for example, X, Y, and Z). If the standard format of a function (that is, without the _3D) is used on a geometry with four dimensions, the function considers only the first two dimensions (for example, X and Y).

For example, the following format considers the X, Y, and Z dimensions of the specified GEOM object in performing the clip operation:

SELECT SDO_LRS.CLIP_GEOM_SEGMENT_3D(a.geom, m.diminfo, 5, 10) FROM routes r, user_sdo_geom_metadata m WHERE m.table_name = 'ROUTES' AND m.column_name = 'GEOM' AND r.route_id = 1;However, the following format considers only the X and Y dimensions, and ignores the Z dimension, of the specified GEOM object in performing the clip operation:

SELECT SDO_LRS.CLIP_GEOM_SEGMENT(a.geom, m.diminfo, 5, 10) FROM routes r, user_sdo_geom_metadata m WHERE m.table_name = 'ROUTES' AND m.column_name = 'GEOM' AND r.route_id = 1;The parameters for the standard and 3D formats of any function are the same, and the Usage Notes apply to both formats.

The 3D formats are not supported with the following:

Geodetic data

Polygons, arcs, or circles

## 7.5 LRS Operations

This section describes several linear referencing operations supported by the Oracle Spatial LRS API.

## 7.5.1 Defining a Geometric Segment

There are two ways to create a geometric segment with measure information:

Construct a geometric segment and assign measures explicitly.

Define a geometric segment with specified start and end, and any other measures, in an ascending or descending order. Measures of shape points with unknown (unassigned) measures (null values) in the geometric segment will be automatically populated according to their locations and distance distribution.

Figure 7-8 shows different ways of defining a geometric segment:

An LRS segment must be defined (or must already exist) before any LRS operations can proceed. That is, the start, end, and any other assigned measures must be present to derive the location from a specified measure. The measure information of intermediate shape points will automatically be populated if measure values are not assigned.

## 7.5.2 Redefining a Geometric Segment

You can redefine a geometric segment to replace the existing measures of all shape points between the start and end point with automatically calculated measures. Redefining a segment can be useful if errors have been made in one or more explicit measure assignments, and you want to start over with proportionally assigned measures.

Figure 7-9 shows the redefinition of a segment where the existing (before) assigned measure values are not proportional and reflect widely varying gaps.

After the segment redefinition in Figure 7-9, the populated measures reflect proportional distances along the segment.

## 7.5.3 Clipping a Geometric Segment

You can clip a geometric segment to create a new geometric segment out of an existing geometric segment, as shown in Figure 7-10, part a.

In Figure 7-10, part a, a segment is created from part of a larger segment. The new segment has its own start and end points, and the direction is the same as in the original larger segment.

## 7.5.4 Splitting a Geometric Segment

You can create two new geometric segments by splitting a geometric segment, as shown in Figure 7-10, part b. The direction of each new segment is the same as in the original segment.

Note:

In Figure 7-10 and several figures that follow, small gaps between segments are used in illustrations of segment splitting and concatenation. Each gap simply reinforces the fact that two different segments are involved. However, the two segments (such as segment 1 and segment 2 in Figure 7-10, parts b and c) are actually connected. The tolerance (see Section 1.5.5) is considered in determining whether or not segments are connected.## 7.5.5 Concatenating Geometric Segments

You can create a new geometric segment by concatenating two geometric segments, as shown in Figure 7-10, part c. The geometric segments do not need to be spatially connected, although they are connected in the illustration in Figure 7-10, part c. (If the segments are not spatially connected, the concatenated result is a multiline string.) The measures of the second geometric segment are shifted so that the end measure of the first segment is the same as the start measure of the second segment. The direction of the segment resulting from the concatenation is the same as in the two original segments.

Measure assignments for the clipping, splitting, and concatenating operations in Figure 7-10 are shown in Figure 7-11. Measure information and segment direction are preserved in a consistent manner. The assignment is done automatically when the operations have completed.

The direction of the geometric segment resulting from concatenation is always the direction of the first segment (

`geom_segment1`

in the call to the SDO_LRS.CONCATENATE_GEOM_SEGMENTS function), as shown in Figure 7-12.In addition to explicitly concatenating two connected segments using the SDO_LRS.CONCATENATE_GEOM_SEGMENTS function, you can perform aggregate concatenation: that is, you can concatenate all connected geometric segments in a column (layer) using the SDO_AGGR_LRS_CONCAT spatial aggregate function. (See the description and example of the SDO_AGGR_LRS_CONCAT spatial aggregate function in Chapter 12.)

## 7.5.6 Scaling a Geometric Segment

You can create a new geometric segment by performing a linear scaling operation on a geometric segment. Figure 7-13 shows the mapping relationship for geometric segment scaling.

In general, scaling a geometric segment only involves rearranging measures of the newly created geometric segment. However, if the scaling factor is negative, the order of the shape points needs to be reversed so that measures will increase along the geometric segment's direction (which is defined by the order of the shape points).

A scale operation can perform any combination of the following operations:

Translating (shifting) measure information. (For example, add the same value to Ms and Me to get M's and M'e.)

Reversing measure information. (Let M's = Me, M'e = Ms, and Mshift = 0.)

Performing simple scaling of measure information. (Let Mshift = 0.)

For examples of these operations, see the Usage Notes and Examples for the SDO_LRS.TRANSLATE_MEASURE, SDO_LRS.REVERSE_GEOMETRY, and SDO_LRS.REDEFINE_GEOM_SEGMENT subprograms in Chapter 16.

## 7.5.7 Offsetting a Geometric Segment

You can create a new geometric segment by performing an offsetting operation on a geometric segment. Figure 7-14 shows the mapping relationship for geometric segment offsetting.

In the offsetting operation shown in Figure 7-14, the resulting geometric segment is offset by 5 units from the specified start and end measures of the original segment.

For more information, see the Usage Notes and Examples for the SDO_LRS.OFFSET_GEOM_SEGMENT function in Chapter 16.

## 7.5.8 Locating a Point on a Geometric Segment

You can find the position of a point described by a measure and an offset on a geometric segment (see Figure 7-15).

There is always a unique location with a specific measure on a geometric segment. Ambiguity arises when offsets are given and the points described by the measures fall on shape points of the geometric segment (see Figure 7-16).

As shown in Figure 7-16, an offset arc of a shape point on a geometric segment is an arc on which all points have the same minimum distance to the shape point. As a result, all points on the offset arc are represented by the same (measure, offset) pair. To resolve this one-to-many mapping problem, the middle point on the offset arc is returned.

## 7.5.9 Projecting a Point onto a Geometric Segment

You can find the projection point of a point with respect to a geometric segment. The point to be projected can be on or off the segment. If the point is on the segment, the point and its projection point are the same.

Projection is a reverse operation of the point-locating operation shown in Figure 7-15. Similar to a point-locating operation, all points on the offset arc of a shape point will have the same projection point (that is, the shape point itself), measure, and offset (see Figure 7-16). If there are multiple projection points for a point, the first one from the start point is returned (Projection Point 1 in both illustrations in Figure 7-17).

## 7.5.10 Converting LRS Geometries

You can convert geometries from standard line string format to LRS format, and the reverse. The main use of conversion functions will probably occur if you have a large amount of existing line string data, in which case conversion is a convenient alternative to creating all of the LRS segments manually. However, if you need to convert LRS segments to standard line strings for certain applications, that capability is provided also.

Functions are provided to convert:

Individual line strings or points

For conversion from standard format to LRS format, a measure dimension (named M by default) is added, and measure information is provided for each point. For conversion from LRS format to standard format, the measure dimension and information are removed. In both cases, the dimensional information (DIMINFO) metadata in the USER_SDO_GEOM_METADATA view is not affected.

Layers (all geometries in a column)

For conversion from standard format to LRS format, a measure dimension (named M by default) is added, but no measure information is provided for each point. For conversion from LRS format to standard format, the measure dimension and information are removed. In both cases, the dimensional information (DIMINFO) metadata in the USER_SDO_GEOM_METADATA view is modified as needed.

Dimensional information (DIMINFO)

The dimensional information (DIMINFO) metadata in the USER_SDO_GEOM_METADATA view is modified as needed. For example, converting a standard dimensional array with X and Y dimensions (SDO_DIM_ELEMENT) to an LRS dimensional array causes an M dimension (SDO_DIM_ELEMENT) to be added.

Figure 7-18 shows the addition of measure information when a standard line string is converted to an LRS line string (using the SDO_LRS.CONVERT_TO_LRS_GEOM function). The measure dimension values are underlined in Figure 7-18.

For conversions of point geometries, the SDO_POINT attribute (described in Section 2.2.3) in the returned geometry is affected as follows:

If a standard point is converted to an LRS point, the SDO_POINT attribute information in the input geometry is used to set the SDO_ELEM_INFO and SDO_ORDINATES attributes (described in Section 2.2.4 and Section 2.2.5) in the resulting geometry, and the SDO_POINT attribute in the resulting geometry is set to null.

If an LRS point is converted to a standard point, the information in the SDO_ELEM_INFO and SDO_ORDINATES attributes (described in Section 2.2.4 and Section 2.2.5) in the input geometry is used to set the SDO_POINT attribute information in the resulting geometry, and the SDO_ELEM_INFO and SDO_ORDINATES attributes in the resulting geometry are set to null.

The conversion functions are listed in Table 16-3 in Chapter 16. See also the reference information in Chapter 16 about each conversion function.

## 7.6 Tolerance Values with LRS Functions

Many LRS functions require that you specify a tolerance value or one or more dimensional arrays. Thus, you can control whether to specify a single tolerance value for all non-measure dimensions or to use the tolerance associated with each non-measure dimension in the dimensional array or arrays. The tolerance is applied only to the geometry portion of the data, not to the measure dimension. The tolerance value for geodetic data is in meters, and for non-geodetic data it is in the unit of measurement associated with the data. (For a detailed discussion of tolerance, see Section 1.5.5.)

Be sure that the tolerance value used is appropriate to the data and your purpose. If the results of LRS functions seem imprecise or incorrect, you may need to specify a smaller tolerance value.

For clip operations (see Section 7.5.3) and offset operations (see Section 7.5.7), if the returned segment has any shape points within the tolerance value of the input geometric segment from what would otherwise be the start point or end point of the returned segment, the shape point is used as the start point or end point of the returned segment. This is done to ensure that the resulting geometry does not contain any redundant vertices, which would cause the geometry to be invalid. For example, assume that the tolerance associated with the geometric segment (non-geodetic data) in Figure 7-19 is 0.5.

If you request a clip operation to return the segment between measure values 0 (the start point) and 61.5 in Figure 7-19, and if the distance between the points associated with measure values 61.5 and 61.257 is less than the 0.5 tolerance value, the end point of the returned segment is (35, 10, 61.257).

## 7.7 Example of LRS Functions

This section presents a simplified example that uses LRS functions. It refers to concepts that are explained in this chapter and uses functions documented in Chapter 16.

This example uses the road that is illustrated in Figure 7-20.

In Figure 7-20, the highway (Route 1) starts at point 2,2 and ends at point 5,14, follows the path shown, and has six entrance-exit points (Exit 1 through Exit 6). For simplicity, each unit on the graph represents one unit of measure, and thus the measure from start to end is 27 (the segment from Exit 5 to Exit 6 being the hypotenuse of a 3-4-5 right triangle).

Each row in Table 7-1 lists an actual highway-related feature and the LRS feature that corresponds to it or that can be used to represent it.

Table 7-1 Highway Features and LRS Counterparts

Highway Feature LRS Feature Named route, road, or street

LRS segment, or linear feature (logical set of segments)

Mile or kilometer marker

Measure

Accident reporting and location tracking

SDO_LRS.LOCATE_PT function

Construction zone (portion of a road)

SDO_LRS.CLIP_GEOM_SEGMENT function

Road extension (adding at the beginning or end) or combination (designating or renaming two roads that meet as one road)

SDO_LRS.CONCATENATE_GEOM_SEGMENTS function

Road reconstruction or splitting (resulting in two named roads from one named road)

SDO_LRS.SPLIT_GEOM_SEGMENT procedure

Finding the closest point on the road to a point off the road (such as a building)

SDO_LRS.PROJECT_PT function

Guard rail or fence alongside a road

SDO_LRS.OFFSET_GEOM_SEGMENT function

Example 7-2 does the following:

Creates a table to hold the segment depicted in Figure 7-20

Inserts the definition of the highway depicted in Figure 7-20 into the table

Inserts the necessary metadata into the USER_SDO_GEOM_METADATA view

Uses PL/SQL and SQL statements to define the segment and perform operations on it

Example 7-3 includes the output of the SELECT statements in Example 7-2.

This chapter contains reference and usage information for the spatial aggregate functions, which are listed in Table 12-1.

Table 12-1 Spatial Aggregate Functions

Method Description Returns a geometry object that is the centroid ("center of gravity") of the specified geometry objects.

Returns a geometry that concatenates the specified line or multiline geometries.

Returns a geometry object that is the convex hull of the specified geometry objects.

Returns an LRS geometry object that concatenates specified LRS geometry objects.

Returns the minimum bounding rectangle of the specified geometries.

Returns a geometry object that is the topological union (OR operation) of the specified geometry objects.

See the usage information about spatial aggregate functions in Section 1.10.

Most of these aggregate functions accept a parameter of type SDOAGGRTYPE, which is described in Section 1.10.1.

## SDO_AGGR_CENTROID

Format

SDO_AGGR_CENTROID(

AggregateGeometry SDOAGGRTYPE

) RETURN SDO_GEOMETRY;

Description

Returns a geometry object that is the centroid ("center of gravity") of the specified geometry objects.

Parameters

- AggregateGeometry
An object of type SDOAGGRTYPE (see Section 1.10.1) that specifies the geometry column and dimensional array.

Usage Notes

The behavior of the function depends on whether the geometry objects are all polygons, all points, or a mixture of polygons and points:

If the geometry objects are all polygons, the centroid of all the objects is returned.

If the geometry objects are all points, the centroid of all the objects is returned.

If the geometry objects are a mixture of polygons and points (specifically, if they include at least one polygon and at least one point), any points are ignored, and the centroid of all the polygons is returned.

The result is weighted by the area of each polygon in the geometry objects. If the geometry objects are a mixture of polygons and points, the points are not used in the calculation of the centroid. If the geometry objects are all points, the points have equal weight.

See also the information about the SDO_GEOM.SDO_CENTROID function in Chapter 15.

Examples

The following example returns the centroid of the geometry objects in the COLA_MARKETS table. (The example uses the definitions and data from Section 2.1.)

SELECT SDO_AGGR_CENTROID(SDOAGGRTYPE(shape, 0.005)) FROM cola_markets; SDO_AGGR_CENTROID(SDOAGGRTYPE(SHAPE,0.005))(SDO_GTYPE, SDO_SRID, SDO_POINT -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- SDO_GEOMETRY(2001, NULL, SDO_POINT_TYPE(5.21295938, 5.00744233, NULL), NULL, NUL L)

## SDO_AGGR_CONCAT_LINES

Format

SDO_AGGR_CONCAT_LINES(

geom SDO_GEOMETRY

) RETURN SDO_GEOMETRY;

Description

Returns a geometry that concatenates the specified line or multiline geometries.

Parameters

- geom
Geometry objects.

Usage Notes

Each input geometry must be a two-dimensional line or multiline geometry (that is, the SDO_GTYPE value must be 2002 or 2006). This function is not supported for LRS geometries. To perform an aggregate concatenation of LRS geometric segments, use the SDO_AGGR_LRS_CONCAT spatial aggregate function.

The input geometries must be line strings whose vertices are connected by straight line segments. Circular arcs and compound line strings are not supported.

If any input geometry is a multiline geometry, the elements of the geometry must be disjoint. If they are not disjoint, this function may return incorrect results.

The topological relationship between the geometries in each pair of geometries to be concatenated must be DISJOINT or TOUCH; and if the relationship is TOUCH, the geometries must intersect only at two end points.

You can use the SDO_UTIL.CONCAT_LINES function (described in Chapter 20) to concatenate two line or multiline geometries.

An exception is raised if any input geometries are not line or multiline geometries, or if not all input geometries are based on the same coordinate system.

Examples

The following example inserts two line geometries in the COLA_MARKETS table, and then returns the aggregate concatenation of these geometries. (The example uses the data definitions from Section 2.1.)

-- First, insert two line geometries. INSERT INTO cola_markets VALUES(1001, 'line_1', SDO_GEOMETRY(2002, NULL, NULL, SDO_ELEM_INFO_ARRAY(1,2,1), SDO_ORDINATE_ARRAY(1,1, 5,1))); INSERT INTO cola_markets VALUES(1002, 'line_2', SDO_GEOMETRY(2002, NULL, NULL, SDO_ELEM_INFO_ARRAY(1,2,1), SDO_ORDINATE_ARRAY(5,1, 8,1))); -- Perform aggregate concatenation of all line geometries in layer. SELECT SDO_AGGR_CONCAT_LINES(c.shape) FROM cola_markets c WHERE c.mkt_id > 1000; SDO_AGGR_CONCAT_LINES(C.SHAPE)(SDO_GTYPE, SDO_SRID, SDO_POINT(X, Y, Z), SDO_ELEM -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- SDO_GEOMETRY(2002, NULL, NULL, SDO_ELEM_INFO_ARRAY(1, 2, 1), SDO_ORDINATE_ARRAY( 1, 1, 5, 1, 8, 1))

## SDO_AGGR_CONVEXHULL

Format

SDO_AGGR_CONVEXHULL(

AggregateGeometry SDOAGGRTYPE

) RETURN SDO_GEOMETRY;

Description

Returns a geometry object that is the convex hull of the specified geometry objects.

Parameters

- AggregateGeometry
An object of type SDOAGGRTYPE (see Section 1.10.1) that specifies the geometry column and dimensional array.

Usage Notes

See also the information about the SDO_GEOM.SDO_CONVEXHULL function in Chapter 15.

Examples

The following example returns the convex hull of the geometry objects in the COLA_MARKETS table. (The example uses the definitions and data from Section 2.1.)

SELECT SDO_AGGR_CONVEXHULL(SDOAGGRTYPE(shape, 0.005)) FROM cola_markets; SDO_AGGR_CONVEXHULL(SDOAGGRTYPE(SHAPE,0.005))(SDO_GTYPE, SDO_SRID, SDO_POI -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- SDO_GEOMETRY(2003, NULL, NULL, SDO_ELEM_INFO_ARRAY(1, 1003, 1), SDO_ORDINATE_ARR AY(8, 1, 10, 7, 10, 11, 8, 11, 6, 11, 1, 7, 1, 1, 8, 1))

## SDO_AGGR_LRS_CONCAT

Format

SDO_AGGR_LRS_CONCAT(

AggregateGeometry SDOAGGRTYPE

) RETURN SDO_GEOMETRY;

Description

Returns an LRS geometry that concatenates specified LRS geometries.

Parameters

- AggregateGeometry
An object of type SDOAGGRTYPE (see Section 1.10.1) that specifies the geometry column and dimensional array.

Usage Notes

This function performs an aggregate concatenation of any number of LRS geometries. If you want to control the order in which the geometries are concatenated, you must use a subquery with the NO_MERGE optimizer hint and the ORDER BY clause. (See the examples.)

The direction of the resulting segment is the same as the direction of the first geometry in the concatenation.

A 3D format of this function (SDO_AGGR_LRS_CONCAT_3D) is available. For information about 3D formats of LRS functions, see Section 7.4.)

For information about the Spatial linear referencing system, see Chapter 7.

Examples

The following example adds an LRS geometry to the LRS_ROUTES table, and then performs two queries that concatenate the LRS geometries in the table. The first query does not control the order of concatenation, and the second query controls the order of concatenation. Notice the difference in direction of the two segments: the segment resulting from the second query has decreasing measure values because the first segment in the concatenation (

`Route0`

) has decreasing measure values. (This example uses the definitions from the example in Section 7.7.)-- Add a segment with route_id less than 1 (here, zero). INSERT INTO lrs_routes VALUES( 0, 'Route0', SDO_GEOMETRY( 3302, -- Line string; 3 dimensions (X,Y,M); 3rd is measure dimension. NULL, NULL, SDO_ELEM_INFO_ARRAY(1,2,1), -- One line string, straight segments SDO_ORDINATE_ARRAY( 5,14,5, -- Starting point - 5 is measure from start. 10,14,0) -- Ending point - 0 measure (decreasing measure) ) ); 1 row created. -- Concatenate all routes (no ordering specified). SELECT SDO_AGGR_LRS_CONCAT(SDOAGGRTYPE(route_geometry, 0.005)) FROM lrs_routes; SDO_AGGR_LRS_CONCAT(SDOAGGRTYPE(ROUTE_GEOMETRY,0.005))(SDO_GTYPE, SDO_SRID -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- SDO_GEOMETRY(3302, NULL, NULL, SDO_ELEM_INFO_ARRAY(1, 2, 1), SDO_ORDINATE_ARRAY( 2, 2, 0, 2, 4, 2, 8, 4, 8, 12, 4, 12, 12, 10, 18, 8, 10, 22, 5, 14, 27, 10, 14, 32)) -- Aggregate concatenation using subquery for ordering. SELECT SDO_AGGR_LRS_CONCAT(SDOAGGRTYPE(route_geometry, 0.005)) FROM ( SELECT /*+ NO_MERGE */ route_geometry FROM lrs_routes ORDER BY route_id); SDO_AGGR_LRS_CONCAT(SDOAGGRTYPE(ROUTE_GEOMETRY,0.005))(SDO_GTYPE, SDO_SRID -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- SDO_GEOMETRY(3302, NULL, NULL, SDO_ELEM_INFO_ARRAY(1, 2, 1), SDO_ORDINATE_ARRAY( 2, 2, 32, 2, 4, 30, 8, 4, 24, 12, 4, 20, 12, 10, 14, 8, 10, 10, 5, 14, 5, 10, 14 , 0))

## SDO_AGGR_MBR

Format

SDO_AGGR_MBR(

geom SDO_GEOMETRY

) RETURN SDO_GEOMETRY;

Description

Returns the minimum bounding rectangle (MBR) of the specified geometries, that is, a single rectangle that minimally encloses the geometries.

Parameters

- geom
Geometry objects.

Usage Notes

All input geometries must have 4-digit SDO_GTYPE values (explained in Section 2.2.1).

This function does not return an MBR geometry if a proper MBR cannot be constructed. Specifically:

If the input geometries are all null, the function returns a null geometry.

If all data in the input geometries is on a single point, the function returns the point.

If all data in the input geometries consists of points on a straight line, the function returns a two-point line.

The SDO_TUNE.EXTENT_OF function, documented in Chapter 19, also returns the MBR of geometries. The SDO_TUNE.EXTENT_OF function has better performance than the SDO_AGGR_MBR function if the data is non-geodetic and if a spatial index is defined on the geometry column; however, the SDO_TUNE.EXTENT_OF function is limited to two-dimensional geometries, whereas the SDO_AGGR_MBR function is not. In addition, the SDO_TUNE.EXTENT_OF function computes the extent for all geometries in a table; by contrast, the SDO_AGGR_MBR function can operate on subsets of rows.

Examples

The following example returns the minimum bounding rectangle of the geometry objects in the COLA_MARKETS table. (The example uses the definitions and data from Section 2.1.)

SELECT SDO_AGGR_MBR(shape) FROM cola_markets; SDO_AGGR_MBR(C.SHAPE)(SDO_GTYPE, SDO_SRID, SDO_POINT(X, Y, Z), SDO_ELEM_INFO, SD -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- SDO_GEOMETRY(2003, NULL, NULL, SDO_ELEM_INFO_ARRAY(1, 1003, 3), SDO_ORDINATE_ARR AY(1, 1, 10, 11))

## SDO_AGGR_UNION

Format

SDO_AGGR_UNION(

AggregateGeometry SDOAGGRTYPE

) RETURN SDO_GEOMETRY;

Description

Returns a geometry object that is the topological union (OR operation) of the specified geometry objects.

Parameters

- AggregateGeometry
Usage Notes

Do not use SDO_AGGR_UNION to merge line string or multiline string geometries; instead, use the SDO_AGGR_CONCAT_LINES spatial aggregate function.

See also the information about the SDO_GEOM.SDO_UNION function in Chapter 15.

Examples

The following example returns the union of the first three geometry objects in the COLA_MARKETS table (that is, all except

This chapter describes the SQL statements used when working with the spatial object data type. The statements are listed in Table 10-1.

Table 10-1 Spatial Index Creation and Usage Statements

Statement Description Alters specific parameters for a spatial index.

Rebuilds a spatial index or a specified partition of a partitioned index.

Changes the name of a spatial index or a partition of a spatial index.

Creates a spatial index on a column of type SDO_GEOMETRY.

Deletes a spatial index.

This chapter focuses on using these SQL statements with spatial indexes. For complete reference information about any statement, see Oracle Database SQL Reference.

Bold italic text is often used in the Keywords and Parameters sections in this chapter to identify a grouping of keywords, followed by specific keywords in the group. For example, INDEX_PARAMS identifies the start of a group of index-related keywords.

## ALTER INDEX

Purpose

Alters specific parameters for a spatial index.

Syntax

ALTER INDEX [schema.]index PARAMETERS ('index_params [physical_storage_params]' )

[{ NOPARALLEL | PARALLEL [ integer ] }] ;

Keywords and Parameters

Value Description INDEX_PARAMS Changes the characteristics of the spatial index. sdo_indx_dims Specifies the number of dimensions to be indexed. For example, a value of 2 causes the first two dimensions to be indexed. Must be less than or equal to the number of actual dimensions (number of SDO_DIM_ELEMENT instances in the dimensional array that describes the geometry objects in the column). If the value is 3 or higher, the only Spatial operator that can be used on the indexed geometries is SDO_FILTER; the other operators described in Chapter 11 cannot be used. Data type is NUMBER. Default = 2. sdo_rtr_pctfree Specifies the minimum percentage of slots in each index tree node to be left empty when the index is created. Slots that are left empty can be filled later when new data is inserted into the table. The value can range from 0 to 50. The default value is best for most applications; however, a value of 0 is recommended if no updates will be performed to the geometry column. Data type is NUMBER. Default = 10. PHYSICAL_STORAGE_PARAMS Determines the storage parameters used for altering the spatial index data table. A spatial index data table is a standard Oracle table with a prescribed format. Not all physical storage parameters that are allowed in the STORAGE clause of a CREATE TABLE statement are supported. The following is a list of the supported subset. tablespace Specifies the tablespace in which the index data table is created. This parameter is the same as TABLESPACE in the STORAGE clause of a CREATE TABLE statement. initial Is the same as INITIAL in the STORAGE clause of a CREATE TABLE statement. next Is the same as NEXT in the STORAGE clause of a CREATE TABLE statement. minextents Is the same as MINEXTENTS in the STORAGE clause of a CREATE TABLE statement. maxextents Is the same as MAXEXTENTS in the STORAGE clause of a CREATE TABLE statement. pctincrease Is the same as PCTINCREASE in the STORAGE clause of a CREATE TABLE statement. { NOPARALLEL | PARALLEL [ integer ] } Controls whether serial (NOPARALLEL) execution or parallel (PARALLEL) execution is used for subsequent queries and DML operations that use the index. For parallel execution you can specify an integer value of degree of parallelism. See the Usage Notes for the CREATE INDEX statement for guidelines and restrictions that apply to the use of the PARALLEL keyword. Default = NOPARALLEL. (If PARALLEL is specified without an integer value, the Oracle database calculates the optimum degree of parallelism.) Prerequisites

You must have EXECUTE privileges on the index type and its implementation type.

The spatial index to be altered is not marked in-progress.

Usage Notes

Use this statement to change the parameters of an existing index.

See the Usage Notes for the CREATE INDEX statement for usage information about many of the other available parameters.

Examples

The following example modifies the tablespace for partition IP2 of the spatial index named BGI.

ALTER INDEX bgi MODIFY PARTITION ip2 PARAMETERS ('tablespace=TBS_3');Related Topics

## ALTER INDEX REBUILD

Syntax

ALTER INDEX [schema.]index REBUILD

[PARAMETERS ('rebuild_params [physical_storage_params]' ) ]

[{ NOPARALLEL | PARALLEL [ integer ] }] ;

or

ALTER INDEX [schema.]index REBUILD ONLINE

[PARAMETERS ('rebuild_params [physical_storage_params]' ) ]

[{ NOPARALLEL | PARALLEL [ integer ] }] ;

or

ALTER INDEX [schema.]index REBUILD PARTITION partition

[PARAMETERS ('rebuild_params [physical_storage_params]' ) ];

Purpose

Rebuilds a spatial index or a specified partition of a partitioned index.

Keywords and Parameters

Value Description REBUILD_PARAMS Specifies in a command string the index parameters to use in rebuilding the spatial index. index_status=cleanup For an online rebuild operation (ALTER INDEX REBUILD ONLINE), performs cleanup operations on tables associated with the older version of the index. layer_gtype Checks to ensure that all geometries are of a specified geometry type. The value must be from the Geometry Type column of Table 2-1 in Section 2.2.1 (except that UNKNOWN_GEOMETRY is not allowed). In addition, specifying POINT allows for optimized processing of point data. Data type is VARCHAR2. sdo_dml_batch_size Specifies the number of index updates to be processed in each batch of updates after a commit operation. The default value is 1000. For example, if you insert 3500 rows into the spatial table and then perform a commit operation, the updates to the spatial index table are performed in four batches of insert operations (1000, 1000, 1000, and 500). See the Usage Notes for the CREATE INDEX statement for more information. Data type is NUMBER. Default = 1000. sdo_indx_dims Specifies the number of dimensions to be indexed. For example, a value of 2 causes the first two dimensions to be indexed. Must be less than or equal to the number of actual dimensions (number of SDO_DIM_ELEMENT instances in the dimensional array that describes the geometry objects in the column). If the value is 3 or higher, the only Spatial operator that can be used on the indexed geometries is SDO_FILTER; the other operators described in Chapter 11 cannot be used. Data type is NUMBER. Default = 2. sdo_rtr_pctfree Specifies the minimum percentage of slots in each index tree node to be left empty when the index is created. Slots that are left empty can be filled later when new data is inserted into the table. The value can range from 0 to 50. Data type is NUMBER. Default = 10. PHYSICAL_STORAGE_PARAMS Determines the storage parameters used for rebuilding the spatial index data table. A spatial index data table is a regular Oracle table with a prescribed format. Not all physical storage parameters that are allowed in the STORAGE clause of a CREATE TABLE statement are supported. The following is a list of the supported subset. tablespace Specifies the tablespace in which the index data table is created. Same as TABLESPACE in the STORAGE clause of a CREATE TABLE statement. initial Is the same as INITIAL in the STORAGE clause of a CREATE TABLE statement. next Is the same as NEXT in the STORAGE clause of a CREATE TABLE statement. minextents Is the same as MINEXTENTS in the STORAGE clause of a CREATE TABLE statement. maxextents Is the same as MAXEXTENTS in the STORAGE clause of a CREATE TABLE statement. pctincrease Is the same as PCTINCREASE in the STORAGE clause of a CREATE TABLE statement. { NOPARALLEL | PARALLEL [ integer ] } Controls whether serial (NOPARALLEL) execution or parallel (PARALLEL) execution is used for the rebuilding of the index and for subsequent queries and DML operations that use the index. For parallel execution you can specify an integer value of degree of parallelism. See the Usage Notes for the CREATE INDEX statement for guidelines and restrictions that apply to the use of the PARALLEL keyword. Default = NOPARALLEL. (If PARALLEL is specified without an integer value, the Oracle database calculates the optimum degree of parallelism.) Prerequisites

You must have EXECUTE privileges on the index type and its implementation type.

The spatial index to be altered is not marked in-progress.

Usage Notes

An ALTER INDEX REBUILD 'rebuild_params' statement rebuilds the index using supplied parameters. Spatial index creation involves creating and inserting index data, for each row in the underlying table column being spatially indexed, into a table with a prescribed format. All rows in the underlying table are processed before the insertion of index data is committed, and this requires adequate rollback segment space.

The ONLINE keyword rebuilds the index without blocking the index; that is, queries can use the spatial index while it is being rebuilt. However, after all queries issued during the rebuild operation have completed, you must clean up the old index information (in the MDRT tables) by entering a SQL statement in the following form:

ALTER INDEX [schema.]index REBUILD ONLINE PARAMETERS ('index_status=cleanup');The following limitations apply to the use of the ONLINE keyword:

Only query operations are permitted while the index is being rebuilt. Insert, update, and delete operations that would affect the index are blocked while the index is being rebuilt.

You cannot use the ONLINE keyword for a rebuild operation if the index was created using the

`'sdo_non_leaf_tbl=TRUE'`

parameter.You cannot use the ONLINE keyword for a partitioned spatial index.

The ALTER INDEX REBUILD statement does not use any previous parameters from the index creation. All parameters should be specified for the index you want to rebuild.

For more information about using the

`layer_gtype`

keyword to constrain data in a layer to a geometry type, see Section 4.1.2.With a partitioned spatial index, you must use a separate ALTER INDEX REBUILD statement for each partition to be rebuilt.

See also the Usage Notes for the CREATE INDEX statement for usage information about many of the available parameters and about the use of the PARALLEL keyword.

Examples

The following example rebuilds OLDINDEX and specifies the tablespace in which to create the index data table.

## ALTER INDEX RENAME TO

Syntax

ALTER INDEX [schema.]index RENAME TO <new_index_name>;

ALTER INDEX [schema.]index PARTITION partition RENAME TO <new_partition_name>;

Purpose

Changes the name of a spatial index or a partition of a spatial index.

Keywords and Parameters

Value Description new_index_name Specifies the new name of the index. new_partition_name Specifies the new name of the partition. Prerequisites

You must have EXECUTE privileges on the index type and its implementation type.

The spatial index to be altered is not marked in-progress.

Usage Notes

None.

Examples

The following example renames OLDINDEX to NEWINDEX.

ALTER INDEX oldindex RENAME TO newindex;Related Topics

## CREATE INDEX

Syntax

CREATE INDEX [schema.]index ON [schema.]table (column)

INDEXTYPE IS MDSYS.SPATIAL_INDEX

[PARAMETERS ('index_params [physical_storage_params]' )]

[{ NOPARALLEL | PARALLEL [ integer ] }];

Purpose

Creates a spatial index on a column of type SDO_GEOMETRY.

Keywords and Parameters

Value Description INDEX_PARAMS Determines the characteristics of the spatial index. geodetic `'geodetic=FALSE'`

allows a non-geodetic index to be built on geodetic data, but with restrictions. (FALSE is the only acceptable value for this keyword.) See the Usage Notes for more information. Data type is VARCHAR2.layer_gtype Checks to ensure that all geometries are of a specified geometry type. The value must be from the Geometry Type column of Table 2-1 in Section 2.2.1 (except that UNKNOWN_GEOMETRY is not allowed). In addition, specifying POINT allows for optimized processing of point data. Data type is VARCHAR2. sdo_dml_batch_size Specifies the number of index updates to be processed in each batch of updates after a commit operation. The default value is 1000. For example, if you insert 3500 rows into the spatial table and then perform a commit operation, the updates to the spatial index table are performed in four batches of insert operations (1000, 1000, 1000, and 500). See the Usage Notes for more information. Data type is NUMBER. Default = 1000. sdo_indx_dims Specifies the number of dimensions to be indexed. For example, a value of 2 causes the first two dimensions to be indexed. Must be less than or equal to the number of actual dimensions (number of SDO_DIM_ELEMENT instances in the dimensional array that describes the geometry objects in the column). If the value is 3 or higher, the only Spatial operator that can be used on the indexed geometries is SDO_FILTER; the other operators described in Chapter 11 cannot be used. Data type is NUMBER. Default = 2. sdo_non_leaf_tbl `'sdo_non_leaf_tbl=TRUE'`

creates a separate index table (with a name in the form MDNT_...$) for nonleaf nodes of the index, in addition to creating an index table (with a name in the form MDRT_...$) for leaf nodes.`'sdo_non_leaf_tbl=FALSE'`

creates a single table (with a name in the form MDRT_...$) for both leaf nodes and nonleaf nodes of the index. See the Usage Notes for more information. Data type is VARCHAR2. Default = FALSEsdo_rtr_pctfree Specifies the minimum percentage of slots in each index tree node to be left empty when the index is created. Slots that are left empty can be filled later when new data is inserted into the table. The value can range from 0 to 50. Data type is NUMBER. Default = 10. PHYSICAL_STORAGE_PARAMS Determines the storage parameters used for creating the spatial index data table. A spatial index data table is a regular Oracle table with a prescribed format. Not all physical storage parameters that are allowed in the STORAGE clause of a CREATE TABLE statement are supported. The following is a list of the supported subset. tablespace Specifies the tablespace in which the index data table is created. Same as TABLESPACE in the STORAGE clause of a CREATE TABLE statement. initial Is the same as INITIAL in the STORAGE clause of a CREATE TABLE statement. next Is the same as NEXT in the STORAGE clause of a CREATE TABLE statement. minextents Is the same as MINEXTENTS in the STORAGE clause of a CREATE TABLE statement. maxextents Is the same as MAXEXTENTS in the STORAGE clause of a CREATE TABLE statement. pctincrease Is the same as PCTINCREASE in the STORAGE clause of a CREATE TABLE statement. work_tablespace Specifies the tablespace for temporary tables used in creating the index. (Applies only to creating spatial R-tree indexes, and not to other types of indexes.) { NOPARALLEL | PARALLEL [ integer ] } Controls whether serial (NOPARALLEL) execut'Tion or parallel (PARALLEL) execution is used for the creation of the index and for subsequent queries and DML operations that use the index. For parallel execution you can specify an integer value of degree of parallelism. See the Usage Notes for more information about parallel index creation. Default = NOPARALLEL. (If PARALLEL is specified without an integer value, the Oracle database calculates the optimum degree of parallelism.) Prerequisites

All current SQL CREATE INDEX prerequisites apply.

You must have EXECUTE privilege on the index type and its implementation type.

The USER_SDO_GEOM_METADATA view must contain an entry with the dimensions and coordinate boundary information for the table column to be spatially indexed.

Usage Notes

For information about spatial indexes, see Section 1.7.

Before you create a spatial index, be sure that the rollback segment size and the SORT_AREA_SIZE parameter value are adequate, as described in Section 4.1.

If an R-tree index is used on linear referencing system (LRS) data and if the LRS data has four dimensions (three plus the M dimension), the

`sdo_indx_dims`

parameter must be used and must specify 3 (the number of dimensions minus one), to avoid the default`sdo_indx_dims`

value of 2, which would index only the X and Y dimensions. For example, if the dimensions are X, Y, Z, and M, specify`sdo_indx_dims=3`

to index the X, Y, and Z dimensions, but not the measure (M) dimension. (The LRS data model, including the measure dimension, is explained in Section 7.2.)A partitioned spatial index can be created on a partitioned table. See Section 4.1.4 for more information about partitioned spatial indexes, including benefits and restrictions.

A spatial index cannot be created on an index-organized table.

You can specify the PARALLEL keyword to cause the index creation to be parallelized. For example:

CREATE INDEX cola_spatial_idx ON cola_markets(shape) INDEXTYPE IS MDSYS.SPATIAL_INDEX PARALLEL;For information about using the PARALLEL keyword, see the description of the

`parallel_clause`

in the section on the CREATE INDEX statement in Oracle Database SQL Reference. In addition, the following notes apply to the use of the PARALLEL keyword for creating or rebuilding (using the ALTER INDEX REBUILD statement) spatial indexes:

The performance cost and benefits from parallel execution for creating or rebuilding an index depend on system resources and load. If the CPUs or disk controllers are already heavily loaded, you should not specify the PARALLEL keyword.

Specifying PARALLEL for creating or rebuilding an index on tables with simple geometries, such as point data, usually results in less performance improvement than on tables with complex geometries.

Other options available for regular indexes (such as ASC and DESC) are not applicable for spatial indexes.

Spatial index creation involves creating and inserting index data, for each row in the underlying table column being spatially indexed, into a table with a prescribed format. All rows in the underlying table are processed before the insertion of index data is committed, and this requires adequate rollback segment space.

If a tablespace name is provided in the parameters clause, the user (underlying table owner) must have appropriate privileges for that tablespace.

For more information about using the

`layer_gtype`

keyword to constrain data in a layer to a geometry type, see Section 4.1.2.The

`'geodetic=FALSE'`

parameter is not recommended, because much of the Oracle Spatial geodetic support will be disabled. This parameter should only be used if you cannot yet reindex the data. (For more information about geodetic and non-geodetic indexes, see Section 4.1.1.)Moreover, if you specify

`'geodetic=FALSE'`

, ensure that the tolerance value stored in the USER_SDO_GEOM_METADATA view is what would be used for Cartesian data. That is, do not use meters for the units of the tolerance value, but instead use the number of decimal places in the data followed by a 5 (for example, 0.00005). This tolerance value will be used for spatial operators. When you use spatial functions that require a tolerance value with this data, use the function format that lets you specify a tolerance value, and specify the tolerance value in meters.The

`sdo_dml_batch_size`

parameter can improve application performance, because Spatial can preallocate system resources to perform multiple index updates more efficiently than successive single index updates; however, to gain the performance benefit, you must not perform commit operations after each insert operation or at intervals less than or equal to the`sdo_dml_batch_size`

value. You should not specify a value greater than 10000 (ten thousand), because the cost of the additional memory and other resources required will probably outweigh any marginal performance increase resulting from such a value.Specifying

`'sdo_non_leaf_tbl=TRUE'`

can help query performance with large data sets if the entire R-tree table may not fit in the KEEP buffer pool. In this case, you must also cause Oracle to buffer the MDNT_...$ table in the KEEP buffer pool, for example, by using ALTER TABLE and specifying STORAGE (BUFFER_POOL KEEP). For partitioned indexes, the same`sdo_non_leaf_tbl`

value must be used for all partitions. Any physical storage parameters, except for`tablespace`

, are applied only to the MDRT_...$ table. The MDNT_...$ table uses only the`tablespace`

parameter, if specified, and default values for all other physical storage parameters.If you are creating a function-based spatial index, the number of parameters must not exceed 32. For information about using function-based spatial indexes, see Section 9.2.

To determine if a CREATE INDEX statement for a spatial index has failed, check to see if the DOMIDX_OPSTATUS column in the USER_INDEXES view is set to FAILED. This is different from the case of regular indexes, where you check to see if the STATUS column in the USER_INDEXES view is set to FAILED.

If the CREATE INDEX statement fails because of an invalid geometry, the ROWID of the failed geometry is returned in an error message along with the reason for the failure.

If the CREATE INDEX statement fails for any reason, then the DROP INDEX statement must be used to clean up the partially built index and associated metadata. If DROP INDEX does not work, add the FORCE parameter and try again.

Examples

The following example creates a spatial R-tree index named COLA_SPATIAL_IDX.

CREATE INDEX cola_spatial_idx ON cola_markets(shape) INDEXTYPE IS MDSYS.SPATIAL_INDEX;Related Topics

## DROP INDEX

Syntax

DROP INDEX [schema.]index [FORCE];

Purpose

Deletes a spatial index.

Keywords and Parameters

Value Description FORCE Causes the spatial index to be deleted from the system tables even if the index is marked in-progress or some other error condition occurs. Prerequisites

You must have EXECUTE privileges on the index type and its implementation type.

Usage Notes

Use DROP INDEX indexname FORCE to clean up after a failure in the CREATE INDEX statement.

Examples

This chapter describes in greater detail the Oracle Spatial coordinate system support, which was introduced in Section 1.5.4. You can store and manipulate SDO_GEOMETRY objects in a variety of coordinate systems.

For reference information about coordinate system transformation functions and procedures in the MDSYS.SDO_CS package, see Chapter 13.

This chapter contains the following major sections:

Section 6.8, "Creating a User-Defined Coordinate Reference System"

Section 6.9, "Notes and Restrictions with Coordinate Systems Support"

## 6.1 Terms and Concepts

This section explains important terms and concepts related to coordinate system support in Oracle Spatial.

## 6.1.1 Coordinate System (Spatial Reference System)

A coordinate system (also called a spatial reference system) is a means of assigning coordinates to a location and establishing relationships between sets of such coordinates. It enables the interpretation of a set of coordinates as a representation of a position in a real world space.

The term coordinate reference system has the same meaning as coordinate system for Spatial, and the terms are used interchangeably. European Petroleum Survey Group (EPSG) specifications and documentation typically use the term coordinate reference system. (EPSG has its own meaning for the term coordinate system, as noted in Section 6.6.11.)

## 6.1.2 Cartesian Coordinates

Cartesian coordinates are coordinates that measure the position of a point from a defined origin along axes that are perpendicular in the represented two-dimensional or three-dimensional space.

## 6.1.3 Geodetic Coordinates (Geographic Coordinates)

Geodetic coordinates (sometimes called geographic coordinates) are angular coordinates (longitude and latitude), closely related to spherical polar coordinates, and are defined relative to a particular Earth geodetic datum (described in Section 6.1.6). For more information about geodetic coordinate support, see Section 6.2.

## 6.1.4 Projected Coordinates

Projected coordinates are planar Cartesian coordinates that result from performing a mathematical mapping from a point on the Earth's surface to a plane. There are many such mathematical mappings, each used for a particular purpose.

## 6.1.5 Local Coordinates

Local coordinates are Cartesian coordinates in a non-Earth (non-georeferenced) coordinate system. Section 6.3 describes local coordinate support in Spatial.

## 6.1.6 Geodetic Datum

A geodetic datum (or datum) is a means of shifting and rotating an ellipsoid to represent the figure of the Earth, usually as an oblate spheroid, that approximates the surface of the Earth locally or globally, and is the reference for the system of geodetic coordinates.

Each geodetic coordinate system is based on a datum.

## 6.1.7 Transformation

Transformation is the conversion of coordinates from one coordinate system to another coordinate system.

If the coordinate system is georeferenced, transformation can involve datum transformation: the conversion of geodetic coordinates from one geodetic datum to another geodetic datum, usually involving changes in the shape, orientation, and center position of the reference ellipsoid.

## 6.2 Geodetic Coordinate Support

Effective with Oracle9i, Spatial provides a rational and complete treatment of geodetic coordinates. Before Oracle9i, Spatial computations were based solely on flat (Cartesian) coordinates, regardless of the coordinate system specified for the layer of geometries. Consequently, computations for data in geodetic coordinate systems were inaccurate, because they always treated the coordinates as if they were on a flat surface, and they did not consider the curvature of the surface.

Effective with release 9.2, ellipsoidal surface computations consider the curvatures of the Earth in the specified geodetic coordinate system and return correct, accurate results. In other words, Spatial queries return the right answers all the time.

## 6.2.1 Geodesy and Two-Dimensional Geometry

A two-dimensional geometry is a surface geometry, but the important question is: What is the surface? A flat surface (plane) is accurately represented by Cartesian coordinates. However, Cartesian coordinates are not adequate for representing the surface of a solid. A commonly used surface for spatial geometry is the surface of the Earth, and the laws of geometry there are different than they are in a plane. For example, on the Earth's surface there are no parallel lines: lines are geodesics, and all geodesics intersect. Thus, closed curved surface problems cannot be done accurately with Cartesian geometry.

Spatial provides accurate results regardless of the coordinate system or the size of the area involved, without requiring that the data be projected to a flat surface. The results are accurate regardless of where on the Earth's surface the query is focused, even in "special" areas such as the poles. Thus, you can store coordinates in any datum and projections that you choose, and you can perform accurate queries regardless of the coordinate system.

## 6.2.2 Choosing a Geodetic or Projected Coordinate System

For applications that deal with the Earth's surface, the data can be represented using a geodetic coordinate system or a projected plane coordinate system. In deciding which approach to take with the data, consider any needs related to accuracy and performance:

Accuracy

For many spatial applications, the area is sufficiently small to allow adequate computations on Cartesian coordinates in a local projection. For example, the New Hampshire State Plane local projection provides adequate accuracy for most spatial applications that use data for that state.

However, Cartesian computations on a plane projection will never give accurate results for a large area such as Canada or Scandinavia. For example, a query asking if Stockholm, Sweden and Helsinki, Finland are within a specified distance may return an incorrect result if the specified distance is close to the actual measured distance. Computations involving large areas or requiring very precise accuracy must account for the curvature of the Earth's surface.

Performance

Spherical computations use more computing resources than Cartesian computations. Some operations using geodetic coordinates may take longer to complete than the same operations using Cartesian coordinates.

## 6.2.3 Geodetic MBRs

To create a query window for certain operations on geodetic data, use an MBR (minimum bounding rectangle) by specifying an SDO_ETYPE value of 1003 or 2003 and an SDO_INTERPRETATION value of 3, as described in Table 2-2 in Section 2.2.4. A geodetic MBR can be used with the following operators: SDO_FILTER, SDO_RELATE with the

`ANYINTERACT`

mask, SDO_ANYINTERACT, and SDO_WITHIN_DISTANCE.Example 6-1 requests the names of all cola markets that are likely to interact spatially with a geodetic MBR.

Example 6-1 Using a Geodetic MBR

SELECT c.name FROM cola_markets_cs c WHERE SDO_FILTER(c.shape, SDO_GEOMETRY( 2003, 8307, -- SRID for WGS 84 longitude/latitude NULL, SDO_ELEM_INFO_ARRAY(1,1003,3), SDO_ORDINATE_ARRAY(6,5, 10,10)) ) = 'TRUE';Example 6-1 produces the following output (assuming the data as defined in Example 6-7 in Section 6.11):

NAME -------------------------------- cola_c cola_b cola_dThe following considerations apply to the use of geodetic MBRs:

Do not use a geodetic MBR with spatial objects stored in the database. Use it only to construct a query window.

The lower-left Y coordinate (minY) must be less than the upper-right Y coordinate (maxY). If the lower-left X coordinate (minX) is greater than the upper-right X coordinate (maxX), the window is assumed to cross the date line meridian (that is, the meridian "opposite" the prime meridian, or both 180 and -180 longitude). For example, an MBR of (-10,10, -100, 20) with longitude/latitude data goes three-fourths of the way around the Earth (crossing the date line meridian), and goes from latitude lines 10 to 20.

When Spatial constructs the MBR internally for the query, lines along latitude lines are densified by adding points at one-degree intervals. This might affect results for objects within a few meters of the edge of the MBR (especially objects in the middle latitudes in both hemispheres).

The following additional examples show special or unusual cases, to illustrate how a geodetic MBR is interpreted with longitude/latitude data:

(10,0, -110,20) crosses the date line meridian and goes most of the way around the world, and goes from the equator to latitude 20.

(10,-90, 40,90) is a band from the South Pole to the North Pole between longitudes 10 and 40.

(10,-90, 40,50) is a band from the South Pole to latitude 50 between longitudes 10 and 40.

(-180,-10, 180,5) is a band that wraps the equator from 10 degrees south to 5 degrees north.

(-180,-90, 180,90) is the whole Earth.

(-180,-90, 180,50) is the whole Earth below latitude 50.

(-180,50, 180,90) is the whole Earth above latitude 50.

## 6.2.4 Other Considerations and Requirements with Geodetic Data

The following geometries are not permitted if a geodetic coordinate system is used:

Circles

Circular arcs

Geodetic coordinate system support is provided only for geometries that consist of points or geodesics (lines on the ellipsoid). If you have geometries containing circles or circular arcs in a projected coordinate system, you can densify them using the SDO_GEOM.SDO_ARC_DENSIFY function (documented in Chapter 15) before transforming them to geodetic coordinates, and then perform Spatial operations on the resulting geometries.

The following size limits apply with geodetic data:

No polygon element can have an area larger than one-half the surface of the Earth.

In a line, the distance between two adjacent coordinates cannot be greater than or equal to one-half the perimeter (a great circle) of the Earth.

If you need to work with larger elements, first break these elements into multiple smaller elements and work with them. For example, you cannot create a geometry representing the entire ocean surface of the Earth; however, you can create multiple geometries, each representing part of the overall ocean surface. To work with a line string that is greater than or equal to one-half the perimeter of the Earth, you can add one or more intermediate points on the line so that all adjacent coordinates are less than one-half the perimeter of the Earth.

To take full advantage of Spatial features, you must index geodetic data layers using a geodetic R-tree index. (You can create a non-geodetic R-tree or quadtree index on geodetic data by specifying

`'geodetic=FALSE'`

in the PARAMETERS clause of the CREATE INDEX statement; however, this is not recommended. See the Usage Notes for the CREATE INDEX statement in Chapter 10 for more information.) In addition, for Spatial release 9.0.1 and later you must delete (DROP INDEX) and re-create all spatial indexes on geodetic data from a release before 9.0.1.Tolerance is specified as meters for geodetic layers. If you use tolerance values that are typical for non-geodetic data, these values are interpreted as meters for geodetic data. For example, if you specify a tolerance value of 0.05 for geodetic data, this is interpreted as precise to 5 centimeters. If this value is more precise than your applications need, performance may be affected because of the internal computational steps taken to implement the specified precision. (For more information about tolerance, see Section 1.5.5.)

For geodetic layers, you must specify the dimensional extents in the index metadata as -180,180 for longitude and -90,90 for latitude. The following statement (from Example 6-7 in Section 6.11) specifies these extents (with a 10-meter tolerance value in each dimension) for a geodetic data layer:

INSERT INTO user_sdo_geom_metadata (TABLE_NAME, COLUMN_NAME, DIMINFO, SRID) VALUES ( 'cola_markets_cs', 'shape', SDO_DIM_ARRAY( SDO_DIM_ELEMENT('Longitude', -180, 180, 10), -- 10 meters tolerance SDO_DIM_ELEMENT('Latitude', -90, 90, 10) -- 10 meters tolerance ), 8307 -- SRID for 'Longitude / Latitude (WGS 84)' coordinate system );See Section 6.9 for additional notes and restrictions relating to geodetic data.

## 6.3 Local Coordinate Support

Spatial provides a level of support for local coordinate systems. Local coordinate systems are often used in CAD systems, and they can also be used in local surveys where the relationship between the surveyed site and the rest of the world is not important.

Several local coordinate systems are predefined and included with Spatial in the SDO_COORD_REF_SYS table (described in Section 6.6.9). These supplied local coordinate systems, whose names start with Non-Earth, define non-Earth Cartesian coordinate systems based on different units of measurement (Meter, Millimeter, Inch, and so on).

In the current release, you cannot perform coordinate system transformation between local and Earth-based coordinate systems; and when transforming a geometry or layer of geometries between local coordinate systems, you can only to convert coordinates in a local coordinate system from one unit of measurement to another (for example, inches to millimeters). However, you can perform all other Spatial operations (for example, using SDO_RELATE, SDO_WITHIN_DISTANCE, and other operators) with local coordinate systems.

## 6.4 EPSG Model and Spatial

Effective with Oracle Database 10g release 2 (10.2), the Oracle Spatial coordinate system support is based on, but is not always identical to, the European Petroleum Survey Group (EPSG) data model and data set (described in detail at

`http://www.epsg.org`

). This approach provides the benefits of standardization, expanded support, and flexibility:

The EPSG model is a comprehensive and widely accepted standard for data representation, so users familiar with it can more easily understand Spatial storage and operations.

Support is provided for more coordinate systems and their associated datums, ellipsoids, and projections. For example, some of the EPSG geographic and projected coordinate systems had no counterpart among coordinate systems supported for previous Spatial releases. Their addition results in an expanded set of supported coordinate systems.

Data transformations are more flexible. Instead of there being only one possible Oracle-defined transformation path between a given source and target coordinate system, you can specify alternative paths to be used for a specific area of applicability (that is, use case) or as the systemwide default.

The rest of this section describes this flexibility.

For data transformations (that is, transforming data from one coordinate system to another), you can now control which transformation rules are to be applied. In previous releases, and in the current release by default, Spatial performs transformations based only on the specified source and target coordinate systems, using predetermined intermediate transformation steps. The assumption behind that default approach is that there is a single correct or preferable transformation chain.

By default, then, Spatial applies certain transformation methods for each supported transformation between specific pairs of source and target coordinate systems. For example, there are over 500 supported transformations from specific coordinate systems to the WGS 84 (longitude/latitude) coordinate system, which has the EPSG SRID value of 4326. As one example, for a transformation from SRID 4605 to SRID 4326, Spatial can use the transformation method with the COORD_OP_ID value 1445, as indicated in the SDO_COORD_OPS table (described in Section 6.6.8), which contains one row for each transformation operation between coordinate systems.

However, you can override the default transformation by specifying a different method (from the set of Oracle-supplied methods) for the transformation for any given source and target SRID combination. You can specify a transformation as the new systemwide default, or you can associate the transformation with a named use case that can be specified when transforming a layer of spatial geometries. (A use case is simply a name given to a usage scenario or area of applicability, such as Project XYZ or Mike's Favorite Transformations; there is no relationship between use cases and database users or schemas.)

To specify a transformation as either the systemwide default or associated with a use case, use the SDO_CS.ADD_PREFERENCE_FOR_OP procedure. To remove a previously specified preference, use the SDO_CS.REVOKE_PREFERENCE_FOR_OP procedure.

When it performs a coordinate system transformation, Spatial follows these general steps to determine the specific transformation to use:

If a use case has been specified, the transformation associated with that use case is applied.

If no use case has been specified and if a user-defined systemwide transformation has been created for the specified source and target coordinate system pair, that transformation is applied.

If no use case has been specified and if no user-defined transformation exists for the specified source and target coordinate system pair, the behavior depends on whether or not EPSG rules have been created, such as by the SDO_CS.CREATE_OBVIOUS_EPSG_RULES procedure:

If the EPSG rules have been created and if an EPSG rule is defined for this transformation, the EPSG transformation is applied.

If the EPSG rules have not been created, or if they have been created but no EPSG rule is defined for this transformation, the Oracle Spatial default transformation is applied.

## 6.5 TFM_PLAN Object Type

The object type TFM_PLAN is used is by several SDO_CS package subprograms to specify a transformation plan. For example, to create a concatenated operation that consists of two operations specified by a parameter of type TFM_PLAN, use the SDO_CS.CREATE_CONCATENATED_OP procedure.

Oracle Spatial defines the object type TFM_PLAN as:

CREATE TYPE tfm_plan AS OBJECT ( THE_PLAN SDO_TFM_CHAIN);The SDO_TFM_CHAIN type is defined as

`VARRAY(1048576) OF NUMBER`

.Within the SDO_TFM_CHAIN array:

The first element specifies the SRID of the source coordinate system.

Each pair of elements after the first element specifies an operation ID and the SRID of a target coordinate system.

## 6.6 Coordinate Systems Data Structures

The coordinate systems functions and procedures use information provided in the tables and views supplied with Oracle Spatial. The tables and views are part of the MDSYS schema; however, public synonyms are defined, so you do not need to specify MDSYS. before the table or view name. The definitions and data in these tables and views are based on the EPSG data model and data set, as explained in Section 6.4.

The coordinate system tables fit into several general categories:

Coordinate system general information: SDO_COORD_SYS, SDO_COORD_REF_SYS

Elements or aspects of a coordinate system definition: SDO_DATUMS, SDO_ELLIPSOIDS, SDO_PRIME_MERIDIANS

Datum transformation support: SDO_COORD_OPS, SDO_COORD_OP_METHODS, SDO_COORD_OP_PARAM_USE, SDO_COORD_OP_PARAM_VALS, SDO_COORD_OP_PARAMS, SDO_COORD_OP_PATHS, SDO_PREFERRED_OPS_SYSTEM, SDO_PREFERRED_OPS_USER

Others related to coordinate system definition: SDO_COORD_AXES, SDO_COORD_AXIS_NAMES, SDO_UNITS_OF_MEASURE

Several views are provided that are identical to or subsets of coordinate system tables:

SDO_COORD_REF_SYSTEM, which contains the same columns as the SDO_COORD_REF_SYS table. Use the SDO_COORD_REF_SYSTEM view instead of the COORD_REF_SYS table for any insert, update, or delete operations.

Subsets of SDO_DATUMS, selected according to the value in the DATUM_TYPE column: SDO_DATUM_ENGINEERING, SDO_DATUM_GEODETIC, SDO_DATUM_VERTICAL.

Subsets of SDO_COORD_REF_SYS, selected according to the value in the COORD_REF_SYS_KIND column: SDO_CRS_COMPOUND, SDO_CRS_ENGINEERING, SDO_CRS_GEOCENTRIC, SDO_CRS_GEOGRAPHIC2D, SDO_CRS_GEOGRAPHIC3D, SDO_CRS_PROJECTED, SDO_CRS_VERTICAL.

The rest of this section explains these tables and views, in alphabetical order. (Many column descriptions are adapted or taken from EPSG descriptions.)

In addition to the tables and views in this section, Spatial provides several legacy tables whose definitions and data match those of certain Spatial system tables used in previous releases. Section 6.7 describes the legacy tables.

Note:

You should not modify or delete any Oracle-supplied information in any of the tables or views that are used for coordinate system support.If you want to create a user-defined coordinate system, see Section 6.8.

## 6.7 Legacy Tables and Views

In previous releases of Spatial, the coordinate systems functions and procedures used information provided in the following tables, some of which have new names or are now views instead of tables:

MDSYS.CS_SRS (see Section 6.7.1) defined the valid coordinate systems. It associates each coordinate system with its well-known text description, which is in conformance with the standard published by the Open Geospatial Consortium (

`http://www.opengeospatial.org`

).MDSYS.SDO_ANGLE_UNITS (see Section 6.7.2) defines the valid angle units.

MDSYS.SDO_AREA_UNITS (see Section 6.7.3) defines the valid area units.

MDSYS.SDO_DIST_UNITS (see Section 6.7.5) defines the valid distance units.

MDSYS.SDO_DATUMS_OLD_FORMAT and MDSYS.SDO_DATUMS_OLD_SNAPSHOT (see Section 6.7.4) are based on the MDSYS.SDO_DATUMS table before release 10.2, which defined valid datums.

MDSYS.SDO_ELLIPSOIDS_OLD_FORMAT and MDSYS.SDO_ELLIPSOIDS_OLD_SNAPSHOT (see Section 6.7.6) are based on the MDSYS.SDO_ELLIPSOIDS table before release 10.2, which defined valid ellipsoids.

MDSYS.SDO_PROJECTIONS_OLD_FORMAT and MDSYS.SDO_PROJECTIONS_OLD_SNAPSHOT (see Section 6.7.7) are based on the MDSYS.SDO_PROJECTIONS table before release 10.2, which defined the valid map projections.

Note:

You should not modify or delete any Oracle-supplied information in these legacy tables.If you refer to a legacy table in a SQL statement, you must include the MDSYS. before the table name.

## 6.7.1 MDSYS.CS_SRS Table

The MDSYS.CS_SRS reference table contains over 4000 rows, one for each valid coordinate system. This table contains the columns shown in Table 6-27.

Table 6-27 MDSYS.CS_SRS Table

VARCHAR2(68)

A well-known name, often mnemonic, by which a user can refer to the coordinate system.

SRID

NUMBER(38)

The unique ID number (Spatial Reference ID) for a coordinate system. Currently, SRID values 1-999999 are reserved for use by Oracle Spatial, and values 1000000 (1 million) and higher are available for user-defined coordinate systems.

AUTH_SRID

NUMBER(38)

An optional ID number that can be used to indicate how the entry was derived; it might be a foreign key into another coordinate table, for example.

AUTH_NAME

VARCHAR2(256)

An authority name for the coordinate system. Contains

`Oracle`

in the supplied table. Users can specify any value in any rows that they add.WKTEXT

VARCHAR2(2046)

The well-known text (WKT) description of the SRS, as defined by the Open Geospatial Consortium. For more information, see Section 6.7.1.1.

CS_BOUNDS

SDO_GEOMETRY

An optional SDO_GEOMETRY object that is a polygon with WGS 84 longitude and latitude vertices, representing the spheroidal polygon description of the zone of validity for a projected coordinate system. Must be null for a geographic or non-Earth coordinate system. Is null in all supplied rows.

## 6.7.1.1 Well-Known Text (WKT)

The WKTEXT column of the MDSYS.CS_SRS table contains the well-known text (WKT) description of the SRS, as defined by the Open Geospatial Consortium. The following is the WKT EBNF syntax.

<coordinate system> ::= <horz cs> | <local cs> <horz cs> ::= <geographic cs> | <projected cs> <projected cs> ::= PROJCS [ "<name>", <geographic cs>, <projection>, {<parameter>,}* <linear unit> ] <projection> ::= PROJECTION [ "<name>" ] <parameter> ::= PARAMETER [ "<name>", <number> ] <geographic cs> ::= GEOGCS [ "<name>", <datum>, <prime meridian>, <angular unit> ] <datum> ::= DATUM [ "<name>", <spheroid> {, <shift-x>, <shift-y>, <shift-z> , <rot-x>, <rot-y>, <rot-z>, <scale_adjust>} ] <spheroid> ::= SPHEROID ["<name>", <semi major axis>, <inverse flattening> ] <prime meridian> ::= PRIMEM ["<name>", <longitude> ] <longitude> ::= <number> <semi-major axis> ::= <number> <inverse flattening> ::= <number> <angular unit> ::= <unit> <linear unit> ::= <unit> <unit> ::= UNIT [ "<name>", <conversion factor> ] <local cs> ::= LOCAL_CS [ "<name>", <local datum>, <linear unit>, <axis> {, <axis>}* ] <local datum> ::= LOCAL_DATUM [ "<name>", <datum type> {, <shift-x>, <shift-y>, <shift-z> , <rot-x>, <rot-y>, <rot-z>, <scale_adjust>} ] <datum type> ::= <number> <axis> ::= AXIS [ "<name>", NORTH | SOUTH | EAST | WEST | UP | DOWN | OTHER ]Each

`<parameter>`

specification is one of the following:

`Standard_Parallel_1`

(in decimal degrees)

`Standard_Parallel_2`

(in decimal degrees)

`Central_Meridian`

(in decimal degrees)

`Latitude_of_Origin`

(in decimal degrees)

`Azimuth`

(in decimal degrees)

`False_Easting`

(in the unit of the coordinate system; for example, meters)

`False_Northing`

(in the unit of the coordinate system; for example, meters)

`Perspective_Point_Height`

(in the unit of the coordinate system; for example, meters)

`Landsat_Number`

(must be 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5)

`Path_Number`

`Scale_Factor`

The default value for each

`<parameter>`

specification is 0 (zero). That is, if a specification is needed for a projection but no value is specified in the WKT, Spatial uses a value of 0.The prime meridian (

`PRIMEM`

) is specified in decimal degrees of longitude.An example of the WKT for a geodetic (geographic) coordinate system is:

'GEOGCS [ "Longitude / Latitude (Old Hawaiian)", DATUM ["Old Hawaiian", SPHEROID ["Clarke 1866", 6378206.400000, 294.978698]], PRIMEM [ "Greenwich", 0.000000 ], UNIT ["Decimal Degree", 0.01745329251994330]]'The WKT definition of the coordinate system is hierarchically nested. The Old Hawaiian geographic coordinate system (GEOGCS) is composed of a named datum (DATUM), a prime meridian (PRIMEM), and a unit definition (UNIT). The datum is in turn composed of a named spheroid and its parameters of semi-major axis and inverse flattening.

An example of the WKT for a projected coordinate system (a Wyoming State Plane) is:

'PROJCS["Wyoming 4901, Eastern Zone (1983, meters)", GEOGCS [ "GRS 80", DATUM ["GRS 80", SPHEROID ["GRS 80", 6378137.000000, 298.257222]], PRIMEM [ "Greenwich", 0.000000 ], UNIT ["Decimal Degree", 0.01745329251994330]], PROJECTION ["Transverse Mercator"], PARAMETER ["Scale_Factor", 0.999938], PARAMETER ["Central_Meridian", -105.166667], PARAMETER ["Latitude_Of_Origin", 40.500000], PARAMETER ["False_Easting", 200000.000000], UNIT ["Meter", 1.000000000000]]'The projected coordinate system contains a nested geographic coordinate system as its basis, as well as parameters that control the projection.

Oracle Spatial supports all common geodetic datums and map projections.

An example of the WKT for a local coordinate system is:

LOCAL_CS [ "Non-Earth (Meter)", LOCAL_DATUM ["Local Datum", 0], UNIT ["Meter", 1.0], AXIS ["X", EAST], AXIS["Y", NORTH]]For more information about local coordinate systems, see Section 6.3.

You can use the SDO_CS.VALIDATE_WKT function, described in Chapter 13, to validate the WKT of any coordinate system defined in the MDSYS.CS_SRS table.

## 6.7.1.2 Procedures for Updating the Well-Known Text

If you insert or delete a row in the SDO_COORD_REF_SYSTEM view (described in Section 6.6.10), Spatial automatically updates the WKTEXT column in the MDSYS.CS_SRS table. (The format of the WKTEXT column is described in Section 6.7.1.1.) However, if you update an existing row in the SDO_COORD_REF_SYSTEM view, the well-known text (WKT) value is not automatically updated.

In addition, information relating to coordinate reference systems is also stored in several other system tables, including SDO_DATUMS (described in Section 6.6.22), SDO_ELLIPSOIDS (described in Section 6.6.23), and SDO_PRIME_MERIDIANS (described in Section 6.6.26). If you add, delete, or modify information in these tables, the WKTEXT values in the MDSYS.CS_SRS table are not automatically updated. For example, if you update an ellipsoid flattening value in the SDO_ELLIPSOIDS table, the well-known text string for the associated coordinate system is not updated.

However, you can manually update the WKTEXT values in the in the MDSYS.CS_SRS table by using any of several procedures whose names start with UPDATE_WKTS_FOR (for example, SDO_CS.UPDATE_WKTS_FOR_ALL_EPSG_CRS and SDO_CS.UPDATE_WKTS_FOR_EPSG_DATUM). If the display of SERVEROUTPUT information is enabled, these procedures display a message identifying the SRID value for each row in the MDSYS.CS_SRS table whose WKTEXT value is being updated. These procedures are described in Chapter 13.

## 6.7.2 MDSYS.SDO_ANGLE_UNITS View

The MDSYS.SDO_ANGLE_UNITS reference view contains one row for each valid angle UNIT specification in the well-known text (WKT) description in the coordinate system definition. The WKT is described in Section 6.7.1.1.

The MDSYS.SDO_ANGLE_UNITS view is based on the SDO_UNITS_OF MEASURE table (described in Section 6.6.27), and it contains the columns shown in Table 6-28.

If the coordinate systems supplied by Oracle are not sufficient for your needs, you can create user-defined coordinate reference systems.

Note:

As mentioned in Section 6.1.1, the terms coordinate system and coordinate reference system (CRS) are often used interchangeably, although coordinate reference systems must be Earth-based.The exact steps for creating a user-defined CRS depend on whether it is geodetic or projected. In both cases, supply information about the coordinate system (coordinate axes, axis names, unit of measurement, and so on). For a geodetic CRS, supply information about the datum (ellipsoid, prime meridian, and so on), as explained in Section 6.8.1. For a projected CRS, supply information about the source (geodetic) CRS and the projection (operation and parameters), as explained in Section 6.8.2.

For any user-defined coordinate system, the SRID value should be 1000000 (1 million) or higher.

## 6.8.1 Creating a Geodetic CRS

If the necessary unit of measurement, coordinate axes, SDO_COORD_SYS table row, ellipsoid, prime meridian, and datum are already defined, insert a row into the SDO_COORD_REF_SYSTEM view (described in Section 6.6.10) to define the new geodetic CRS.

Example 6-2 inserts the definition for a hypothetical geodetic CRS named

`My Own NAD27`

(which, except for its SRID and name, is the same as the`NAD27`

CRS supplied by Oracle).Example 6-2 Creating a User-Defined Geodetic Coordinate Reference System

INSERT INTO SDO_COORD_REF_SYSTEM ( SRID, COORD_REF_SYS_NAME, COORD_REF_SYS_KIND, COORD_SYS_ID, DATUM_ID, GEOG_CRS_DATUM_ID, SOURCE_GEOG_SRID, PROJECTION_CONV_ID, CMPD_HORIZ_SRID, CMPD_VERT_SRID, INFORMATION_SOURCE, DATA_SOURCE, IS_LEGACY, LEGACY_CODE, LEGACY_WKTEXT, LEGACY_CS_BOUNDS, IS_VALID, SUPPORTS_SDO_GEOMETRY) VALUES ( 9994267, 'My Own NAD27', 'GEOGRAPHIC2D', 6422, 6267, 6267, NULL, NULL, NULL, NULL, NULL, 'EPSG', 'FALSE', NULL, NULL, NULL, 'TRUE', 'TRUE');If the necessary information for the definition does not already exist, follow these steps, as needed, to define the information before you insert the row into the SDO_COORD_REF_SYSTEM view:

If the unit of measurement is not already defined in the SDO_UNITS_OF_MEASURE table (described in Section 6.6.27), insert a row into that table to define the new unit of measurement.

If the coordinate axes are not already defined in the SDO_COORD_AXES table (described in Section 6.6.1), insert one row into that table for each new coordinate axis.

If an appropriate entry for the coordinate system does not already exist in the SDO_COORD_SYS table (described in Section 6.6.11), insert a row into that table. Example 6-3 inserts the definition for a fictitious coordinate system.

Example 6-3 Inserting a Row into the SDO_COORD_SYS Table

INSERT INTO SDO_COORD_SYS ( COORD_SYS_ID, COORD_SYS_NAME, COORD_SYS_TYPE, DIMENSION, INFORMATION_SOURCE, DATA_SOURCE) VALUES ( 9876543, 'My custom CS. Axes: lat, long. Orientations: north, east. UoM: deg', 'ellipsoidal', 2, 'Myself', 'Myself');If the ellipsoid is not already defined in the SDO_ELLIPSOIDS table (described in Section 6.6.23), insert a row into that table to define the new ellipsoid.

If the prime meridian is not already defined in the SDO_PRIME_MERIDIANS table (described in Section 6.6.26), insert a row into that table to define the new prime meridian.

If the datum is not already defined in the SDO_DATUMS table (described in Section 6.6.22), insert a row into that table to define the new datum.

## 6.8.2 Creating a Projected CRS

If the necessary unit of measurement, coordinate axes, SDO_COORD_SYS table row, source coordinate system, projection operation, and projection parameters are already defined, insert a row into the SDO_COORD_REF_SYSTEM view (described in Section 6.6.10) to define the new projected CRS.

Example 6-4 inserts the definition for a hypothetical projected CRS named

`My Own NAD27 / Cuba Norte`

(which, except for its SRID and name, is the same as the`NAD27 / Cuba Norte`

CRS supplied by Oracle).Example 6-4 Creating a User-Defined Projected Coordinate Reference System

INSERT INTO SDO_COORD_REF_SYSTEM ( SRID, COORD_REF_SYS_NAME, COORD_REF_SYS_KIND, COORD_SYS_ID, DATUM_ID, GEOG_CRS_DATUM_ID, SOURCE_GEOG_SRID, PROJECTION_CONV_ID, CMPD_HORIZ_SRID, CMPD_VERT_SRID, INFORMATION_SOURCE, DATA_SOURCE, IS_LEGACY, LEGACY_CODE, LEGACY_WKTEXT, LEGACY_CS_BOUNDS, IS_VALID, SUPPORTS_SDO_GEOMETRY) VALUES ( 9992085, 'My Own NAD27 / Cuba Norte', 'PROJECTED', 4532, NULL, 6267, 4267, 18061, NULL, NULL, 'Institut Cubano di Hidrografia (ICH)', 'EPSG', 'FALSE', NULL, NULL, NULL, 'TRUE', 'TRUE');If the necessary information for the definition does not already exist, follow these steps, as needed, to define the information before you insert the row into the SDO_COORD_REF_SYSTEM view:

If the unit of measurement is not already defined in the SDO_UNITS_OF_MEASURE table (described in Section 6.6.27), insert a row into that table to define the new unit of measurement.

If the coordinate axes are not already defined in the SDO_COORD_AXES table (described in Section 6.6.1), insert one row into that table for each new coordinate axis.

If an appropriate entry for the coordinate system does not already exist in SDO_COORD_SYS table (described in Section 6.6.11), insert a row into that table. (See Example 6-3 in Section 6.8.1).

If the projection operation is not already defined in the SDO_COORD_OPS table (described in Section 6.6.8), insert a row into that table to define the new projection operation. Example 6-5 shows the statement used to insert information about coordinate operation ID 18061, which is supplied by Oracle.

Example 6-5 Inserting a Row into the SDO_COORD_OPS Table

INSERT INTO SDO_COORD_OPS ( COORD_OP_ID, COORD_OP_NAME, COORD_OP_TYPE, SOURCE_SRID, TARGET_SRID, COORD_TFM_VERSION, COORD_OP_VARIANT, COORD_OP_METHOD_ID, UOM_ID_SOURCE_OFFSETS, UOM_ID_TARGET_OFFSETS, INFORMATION_SOURCE, DATA_SOURCE, SHOW_OPERATION, IS_LEGACY, LEGACY_CODE, REVERSE_OP, IS_IMPLEMENTED_FORWARD, IS_IMPLEMENTED_REVERSE) VALUES ( 18061, 'Cuba Norte', 'CONVERSION', NULL, NULL, NULL, NULL, 9801, NULL, NULL, NULL, 'EPSG', 1, 'FALSE', NULL, 1, 1, 1);If the parameters for the projection operation are not already defined in the SDO_COORD_OP_PARAM_VALS table (described in Section 6.6.5), insert one row into that table for each new parameter. Example 6-6 shows the statement used to insert information about parameters with ID values 8801, 8802, 8805, 8806, and 8807, which are supplied by Oracle.

Example 6-6 Inserting a Row into the SDO_COORD_OP_PARAM_VALS Table

INSERT INTO SDO_COORD_OP_PARAM_VALS ( COORD_OP_ID, COORD_OP_METHOD_ID, PARAMETER_ID, PARAMETER_VALUE, PARAM_VALUE_FILE_REF, UOM_ID) VALUES ( 18061, 9801, 8801, 22.21, NULL, 9110); INSERT INTO SDO_COORD_OP_PARAM_VALS ( COORD_OP_ID, COORD_OP_METHOD_ID, PARAMETER_ID, PARAMETER_VALUE, PARAM_VALUE_FILE_REF, UOM_ID) VALUES ( 18061, 9801, 8802, -81, NULL, 9110); INSERT INTO SDO_COORD_OP_PARAM_VALS ( COORD_OP_ID, COORD_OP_METHOD_ID, PARAMETER_ID, PARAMETER_VALUE, PARAM_VALUE_FILE_REF, UOM_ID) VALUES ( 18061, 9801, 8805, .99993602, NULL, 9201); INSERT INTO SDO_COORD_OP_PARAM_VALS ( COORD_OP_ID, COORD_OP_METHOD_ID, PARAMETER_ID, PARAMETER_VALUE, PARAM_VALUE_FILE_REF, UOM_ID) VALUES ( 18061, 9801, 8806, 500000, NULL, 9001); INSERT INTO SDO_COORD_OP_PARAM_VALS ( COORD_OP_ID, COORD_OP_METHOD_ID, PARAMETER_ID, PARAMETER_VALUE, PARAM_VALUE_FILE_REF, UOM_ID) VALUES ( 18061, 9801, 8807, 280296.016, NULL, 9001);## 6.9 Notes and Restrictions with Coordinate Systems Support

The following notes and restrictions apply to coordinate systems support in the current release of Oracle Spatial.

If you have geodetic data, see Section 6.2 for additional considerations, guidelines, and restrictions.

## 6.9.1 Different Coordinate Systems for Geometries with Operators and Functions

For Spatial operators (described in Chapter 11) that take two geometries as input parameters, if the geometries are based on different coordinate systems, the query window (the second geometry) is transformed to the coordinate system of the first geometry before the operation is performed. This transformation is a temporary internal operation performed by Spatial; it does not affect any stored query-window geometry.

For SDO_GEOM package geometry functions (described in Chapter 15) that take two geometries as input parameters, both geometries must be based on the same coordinate system.

## 6.9.2 3D LRS Functions Not Supported with Geodetic Data

In the current release, the 3D formats of LRS functions (explained in Section 7.4) are not supported with geodetic data.

## 6.9.3 Functions Supported by Approximations with Geodetic Data

In the current release, the following functions are supported by approximations with geodetic data:

When these functions are used on data with geodetic coordinates, they internally perform the operations in an implicitly generated local-tangent-plane Cartesian coordinate system and then transform the results to the geodetic coordinate system. For SDO_GEOM.SDO_BUFFER, generated arcs are approximated by line segments before the back-transform.

## 6.9.4 Unknown CRS and NaC Coordinate Reference Systems

The following coordinate reference systems are provided for Oracle internal use and for other possible special uses:

`unknown CRS`

(SRID 999999) means that the coordinate system is unknown, and its space could be geodetic or Cartesian. Contrast this with specifying a null coordinate reference system, which indicates an unknown coordinate system with a Cartesian space.

`NaC`

(SRID 999998) means Not-a-CRS. Its name is patterned after the`NaN`

(Not-a-Number) value in Java. It is intended for potential use with nonspatial geometries.The following restrictions apply to geometries based on the

`unknown CRS`

and`NaC`

coordinate reference systems:

You cannot perform coordinate system transformations on these geometries.

Operations that require a coordinate system will return a null value when performed on these geometries. These operations include finding the area or perimeter of a geometry, creating a buffer, densifying an arc, and computing the aggregate centroid.

## 6.10 U.S. National Grid Support

The U.S. National Grid is a point coordinate representation using a single alphanumeric coordinate (for example, 18SUJ2348316806479498). This approach contrasts with the use of numeric coordinates to represent the location of a point, as is done with Oracle Spatial and EPSG. A good description of the U.S. National Grid is available at

`http://www.ngs.noaa.gov/TOOLS/usng.html`

.To support the U.S. National Grid in Spatial, the SDO_GEOMETRY type cannot be used because it is based on numeric coordinates. Instead, a point in U.S. National Grid format is represented as a single string of type VARCHAR2. To allow conversion between the SDO_GEOMETRY format and the U.S. National grid format, the SDO_CS package (documented in Chapter 13) contains the following functions:

## 6.11 Example of Coordinate System Transformation

This section presents a simplified example that uses coordinate system transformation functions and procedures. It refers to concepts that are explained in this chapter and uses functions documented in Chapter 13.

Example 6-7 uses mostly the same geometry data (cola markets) as in Section 2.1, except that instead of null SDO_SRID values, the SDO_SRID value 8307 is used. That is, the geometries are defined as using the coordinate system whose SRID is 8307 and whose well-known name is "Longitude / Latitude (WGS 84)". This is probably the most widely used coordinate system, and it is the one used for global positioning system (GPS) devices. The geometries are then transformed using the coordinate system whose SRID is 8199 and whose well-known name is "Longitude / Latitude (Arc 1950)".

Example 6-7 uses the geometries illustrated in Figure 2-1 in Section 2.1, except that

`cola_d`

is a rectangle (here, a square) instead of a circle, because arcs are not supported with geodetic coordinate systems.Example 6-7 does the following:

Creates a table (COLA_MARKETS_CS) to hold the spatial data

Inserts rows for four areas of interest (

`cola_a`

,`cola_b`

,`cola_c`

,`cola_d`

), using the SDO_SRID value 8307Updates the USER_SDO_GEOM_METADATA view to reflect the dimension of the areas, using the SDO_SRID value 8307

Creates a spatial index (COLA_SPATIAL_IDX_CS)

Performs some transformation operations (single geometry and entire layer)

Example 6-8 includes the output of the SELECT statements in Example 6-7.

This chapter describes how to load spatial data into a database, including storing the data in a table with a column of type SDO_GEOMETRY. After you have loaded spatial data, you can create a spatial index for it and perform queries on it, as described in Chapter 4.

The process of loading data can be classified into two categories:

Bulk loading of data (see Section 3.1)

This process is used to load large volumes of data into the database and uses the SQL*Loader utility to load the data.

Transactional insert operations (see Section 3.2)

This process is typically used to insert relatively small amounts of data into the database using the INSERT statement in SQL.

## 3.1 Bulk Loading

Bulk loading can import large amounts of data into an Oracle database. Bulk loading is accomplished with the SQL*Loader utility. (For information about SQL*Loader, see Oracle Database Utilities.)

## 3.1.1 Bulk Loading SDO_GEOMETRY Objects

Example 3-1 is the SQL*Loader control file for loading four geometries. When this control file is used with SQL*Loader, it loads the same cola market geometries that are inserted using SQL statements in Example 2-1 in Section 2.1.

The

`EXTERNAL`

keyword in the definition`mkt_id INTEGER EXTERNAL`

means that each value to be inserted into the MKT_ID column (1, 2, 3, and 4 in this example) is an integer in human-readable form, not binary format.In the data after

`begindata`

, each MKT_ID value is preceded by one space, because the`CONTINUEIF NEXT(1:1) = '#'`

specification causes the first position of each data line to be ignored unless it is the number sign (#) continuation character.Example 3-2 assumes that a table named POLY_4PT was created as follows:

CREATE TABLE POLY_4PT (GID VARCHAR2(32), GEOMETRY SDO_GEOMETRY);Assume that the ASCII data consists of a file with delimited columns and separate rows fixed by the limits of the table with the following format:

Oracle Spatial uses standard Oracle tables that can be accessed or loaded with standard SQL syntax. This section contains examples of transactional insertions into columns of type SDO_GEOMETRY. This process is typically used to add relatively small amounts of data into the database.

The INSERT statement in Oracle SQL has a limit of 999 arguments. Therefore, you cannot create a variable-length array of more than 999 elements using the SDO_GEOMETRY constructor inside a transactional INSERT statement; however, you can insert a geometry using a host variable, and the host variable can be built using the SDO_GEOMETRY constructor with more than 999 values in the SDO_ORDINATE_ARRAY specification. (The host variable is an OCI, PL/SQL, or Java program variable.)

To perform transactional insertions of geometries, you can create a procedure to insert a geometry, and then invoke that procedure on each geometry to be inserted. Example 3-4 creates a procedure to perform the insert operation.

Example 3-4 Procedure to Perform a Transactional Insert Operation

CREATE OR REPLACE PROCEDURE INSERT_GEOM(GEOM SDO_GEOMETRY) IS BEGIN INSERT INTO TEST_1 VALUES (GEOM); COMMIT; END; /Using the procedure created in Example 3-4, you can insert data by using a PL/SQL block, such as the one in Example 3-5, which loads a geometry into the variable named

`geom`

and then invokes the INSERT_GEOM procedure to insert that geometry.Example 3-5 PL/SQL Block Invoking a Procedure to Insert a Geometry

DECLARE geom SDO_geometry := SDO_geometry (2003, null, null, SDO_elem_info_array (1,1003,3), SDO_ordinate_array (-109,37,-102,40)); BEGIN INSERT_GEOM(geom); COMMIT; END; /For additional examples with various geometry types, see the following:

SDO_CS Package (Coordinate System Transformation) PK+ޓr^PKlUIOEBPS/sdo_prtusage.htm## 13 SDO_CS Package (Coordinate System Transformation)

The MDSYS.SDO_CS package contains subprograms for working with coordinate systems. You can perform explicit coordinate transformations on a single geometry or an entire layer of geometries (that is, all geometries in a specified column in a table).

To use the subprograms in this chapter, you must understand the conceptual information about coordinate systems in Section 1.5.4 and Chapter 6.

op_id IN NUMBER,

source_crs IN NUMBER DEFAULT NULL,

target_crs IN NUMBER DEFAULT NULL,

use_case IN VARCHAR2 DEFAULT NULL);

Description

Adds a preference for an operation between a source coordinate system and a target coordinate system.

Parameters

- op_id
ID number of the operation. Must be a value in the COORD_OP_ID column of the SDO_COORD_OPS table (described in Section 6.6.8).

- source_crs
The SRID of the source coordinate reference system. Must be null or a value in the SRID column of the SDO_COORD_REF_SYS table (described in Section 6.6.9).

- target_crs
The SRID of the target coordinate reference system. Must be null or a value in the SRID column of the SDO_COORD_REF_SYS table (described in Section 6.6.9).

- use_case
Name of the use case to be associated with this preference. Must be null or a value from the USE_CASE column of the SDO_PREFERRED_OPS_USER table (described in Section 6.6.25).

Usage Notes

If

`use_case`

is null, the transformation plan associated with the operation is a systemwide preference, and a row is added (or two rows are added if a reverse operation exists) to the SDO_PREFERRED_OPS_SYSTEM table (described in Section 6.6.24). If`use_case`

is not null, the transformation plan associated with the operation is a preference associated with the specified use case, and a row is added (or two rows are added if a reverse operation exists) to the SDO_PREFERRED_OPS_USER table (described in Section 6.6.25).To create a concatenated operation and make it preferred either systemwide or for a specified use case, you can use the SDO_CS.CREATE_PREF_CONCATENATED_OP convenience procedure.

To revoke a preference for an operation between a source coordinate system and a target coordinate system, use the SDO_CS.REVOKE_PREFERENCE_FOR_OP procedure.

Examples

The following example adds a preference for operation 19977 to be used in transformations from SRID 4301 to SRID 4326 when use case use_case_B is specified for the transformation.

## SDO_CS.CREATE_CONCATENATED_OP

Format

SDO_CS.CREATE_CONCATENATED_OP(

op_id IN NUMBER,

op_name IN VARCHAR2,

use_plan IN TFM_PLAN);

Description

Creates a concatenated operation.

Parameters

- op_id
ID number of the concatenated operation.

- op_name
Name to be associated with the concatenated operation.

- use_plan
Transformation plan. The TFM_PLAN object type is explained in Section 6.5.

Usage Notes

A concatenated operation is the concatenation (chaining) of two or more atomic operations.

To create a concatenated operation and make it preferred either systemwide or for a specified use case, you can use the SDO_CS.CREATE_PREF_CONCATENATED_OP convenience procedure.

Examples

The following example creates a concatenation operation with the operation ID 2999 and the name

`CONCATENATED_OPERATION_2999`

.DECLARE BEGIN SDO_CS.CREATE_CONCATENATED_OP( 2999, 'CONCATENATED_OPERATION_2999', TFM_PLAN(SDO_TFM_CHAIN(4242, 19910, 24200, 1000000000, 24200))); END; /

## SDO_CS.CREATE_OBVIOUS_EPSG_RULES

Format

SDO_CS.CREATE_OBVIOUS_EPSG_RULES(

use_case IN VARCHAR2 DEFAULT NULL);

Description

Creates a basic set of EPSG rules to be applied in certain transformations.

Parameters

- use_case
Name of the use case to be associated with the application of the EPSG rules that are created. Must be a value from the USE_CASE column of the SDO_PREFERRED_OPS_USER table (described in Section 6.6.25).

Usage Notes

This procedure creates rules to implement the main EPSG-defined transformations between specific coordinate reference systems. For transformations between some coordinate reference systems, EPSG has specified rules that should be applied. For any given transformation from one coordinate reference system to another, the EPSG rule might be different from the default Oracle Spatial rule. If you execute this procedure, the EPSG rules are applied in any such cases. If you do not execute this procedure, the default Spatial rules are used in such cases.

This procedure inserts many rows into the SDO_PREFERRED_OPS_SYSTEM table (see Section 6.6.24).

To delete the EPSG rules created by this procedure, and thus cause the default Spatial rules to be used in all cases, use the SDO_CS.DELETE_ALL_EPSG_RULES procedure.

Examples

The following example creates a basic set of EPSG rules to be applied in certain transformations.

EXECUTE SDO_CS.CREATE_OBVIOUS_EPSG_RULES;

## SDO_CS.CREATE_PREF_CONCATENATED_OP

Format

SDO_CS.CREATE_PREF_CONCATENATED_OP(

op_id IN NUMBER,

op_name IN VARCHAR2,

use_plan IN TFM_PLAN,

use_case IN VARCHAR2 DEFAULT NULL);

Description

Creates a concatenated operation, associating it with a transformation plan and making it preferred either systemwide or for a specified use case.

Parameters

- op_id
ID number of the concatenated operation to be created.

- op_name
Name to be associated with the concatenated operation.

- use_plan
Transformation plan. The TFM_PLAN object type is explained in Section 6.5.

- use_case
Use case to which this preferred concatenated operation applies. Must be a null or a value from the USE_CASE column of the SDO_PREFERRED_OPS_USER table (described in Section 6.6.25).

Usage Notes

This convenience procedure combines the operations of the SDO_CS.CREATE_CONCATENATED_OP and SDO_CS.ADD_PREFERENCE_FOR_OP procedures.

A concatenated operation is the concatenation (chaining) of two or more atomic operations.

If

`use_case`

is null, the transformation plan associated with the operation is a systemwide preference, and a row is added (or two rows are added if a reverse operation exists) to the SDO_PREFERRED_OPS_SYSTEM table (described in Section 6.6.24). If`use_case`

is not null, the transformation plan associated with the operation is a preference associated with the specified use case, and a row is added (or two rows are added if a reverse operation exists) to the SDO_PREFERRED_OPS_USER table (described in Section 6.6.25).To create a concatenation without making it preferred either systemwide or for a specified use case, use the SDO_CS.CREATE_CONCATENATED_OP procedure

To delete a concatenated operation, use the SDO_CS.DELETE_OP procedure.

Examples

The following example creates a concatenation operation with the operation ID 300 and the name

`MY_CONCATENATION_OPERATION`

, and causes Spatial to use the specified transformation plan in all cases (because`use_case`

is null) when this operation is used.DECLARE BEGIN SDO_CS.CREATE_PREF_CONCATENATED_OP( 300, 'MY_CONCATENATED_OPERATION', TFM_PLAN(SDO_TFM_CHAIN(4242, 19910, 24200, 1000000000, 24200)), NULL); END; /

## SDO_CS.DELETE_ALL_EPSG_RULES

Format

SDO_CS.DELETE_ALL_EPSG_RULES(

use_case IN VARCHAR2 DEFAULT NULL);

Description

Deletes the basic set of EPSG rules to be applied in certain transformations.

Parameters

- use_case
Name of the use case to be associated with the application of the EPSG rules that are created. Must match the value that was used for the

`use_case`

parameter value (either null or a specified value) when the SDO_CS.CREATE_OBVIOUS_EPSG_RULES procedure was called.Usage Notes

This procedure deletes the EPSG rules that were previously created by the SDO_CS.CREATE_OBVIOUS_EPSG_RULES procedure, and thus causes the default Spatial rules to be used in all cases. (See the Usage Notes for the SDO_CS.CREATE_OBVIOUS_EPSG_RULES procedure for more information.)

If

`use_case`

is null, this procedure deletes all rows from the SDO_PREFERRED_OPS_SYSTEM table (see Section 6.6.24). If`use_case`

is not null, this procedure deletes the rows associated with the specified use case from the SDO_PREFERRED_OPS_USER table (see Section 6.6.25).Examples

The following example deletes the basic set of EPSG rules to be applied in certain transformations.

EXECUTE SDO_CS.DELETE_ALL_EPSG_RULES;

Format

SDO_CS.DELETE_OP(

op_id IN NUMBER);

Description

Deletes a concatenated operation.

Parameters

- op_id
ID number of the operation to be deleted.

Usage Notes

To create a concatenated operation and make it preferred systemwide or only for a specified use case, use the SDO_CS.CREATE_CONCATENATED_OP procedure.

Examples

The following example deletes the operation with the ID number 300.

EXECUTE SDO_CS.DELETE_OP(300);

Point geometry whose representation is to be converted to a point represented in U.S. National Grid format. The input geometry must have a valid non-null SRID, that is, a value in the SRID column of the SDO_COORD_REF_SYS table (described in Section 6.6.9).

- accuracy_in_meters
Accuracy of the point location in meters. Should be 1 raised to a negative or positive power of 10 (for example, 0.001, 0.01, 0.1, 1, 10, 100, or 1000). Any other specified values are adjusted internally by Spatial, and the result might not be what you expect.

- datum
The name of the datum on which the U.S. National Grid coordinate for the point is to be based. Must be either

`NAD83`

or`NAD27`

. The default value is`NAD83`

.Usage Notes

For information about Oracle Spatial support for the U.S. National Grid, see Section 6.10.

The

`accuracy_in_meters`

value affects the number of digits used to represent the accuracy in the returned U.S. National Grid string. For example, if you specify 0.000001, the string will contain many digits; however, depending on the source of the data, the digits might not accurately reflect geographical reality. Consider the following scenarios. If you create a U.S. National Grid string from a UTM geometry, you can get perfect accuracy, because no inherently inaccurate transformation is involved. However, transforming from a Lambert projection to the U.S. National Grid format involves an inverse Lambert projection and a forward UTM projection, each of which has some inherent inaccuracy. If you request the resulting U.S. National Grid string with 1 millimeter (0.001) accuracy, the string will contain all the digits, but the millimeter-level digit will probably be geographically inaccurate.To convert a a point represented in U.S. National Grid format to a spatial point geometry, use the SDO_CS.FROM_USNG function.

Examples

The following example converts a spatial geometry point object with longitude/latitude coordinates to a point represented in U.S. National Grid format using an accuracy of 0.001 meter (1 millimeter).

Description

Transforms a geometry representation using a coordinate system (specified by SRID or name).

Parameters

- geom
Geometry whose representation is to be transformed using another coordinate system. The input geometry must have a valid non-null SRID, that is, a value in the SRID column of the SDO_COORD_REF_SYS table (described in Section 6.6.9).

- tolerance
Tolerance value (see Section 1.5.5).

- dim
Dimensional information array corresponding to

`geom`

, usually selected from one of the xxx_SDO_GEOM_METADATA views (described in Section 2.6).- to_srid
The SRID of the coordinate system to be used for the transformation. It must be a value in the SRID column of the SDO_COORD_REF_SYS table (described in Section 6.6.9).

- to_srname
The name of the coordinate system to be used for the transformation. It must be a value (specified exactly) in the COORD_REF_SYS_NAME column of the SDO_COORD_REF_SYS table (described in Section 6.6.9).

Usage Notes

Transformation can be done only between two different georeferenced coordinate systems or between two different local coordinate systems.

An exception is raised if

`geom`

,`to_srid`

, or`to_srname`

is invalid. For`geom`

to be valid for this function, its definition must include an SRID value matching a value in the SRID column of the SDO_COORD_REF_SYS table (described in Section 6.6.9).Examples

## SDO_CS.VALIDATE_WKT

Format

SDO_CS.VALIDATE_WKT(

srid IN NUMBER

) RETURN VARCHAR2;

Description

Validates the well-known text (WKT) description associated with a specified SRID.

Parameters

- srid
The SRID of the coordinate system whose well-known text (WKT) description is to be validated. An entry for the specified value must exist in the SDO_COORD_REF_SYS table (described in Section 6.6.9).

Usage Notes

This function returns the string 'TRUE' if the WKT description is valid. If the WKT description is invalid, this function returns a string in the format 'FALSE (<position-number>)', where <position-number> is the number of the character position in the WKT description where the first error occurs.

The WKT description is checked to see if it satisfies the requirements described in Section 6.7.1.1.

The following example validates the WKT description of the coordinate system associated with SRID 81989000. The res^ults show that the cause of the invalidity (or the first cause of the invalidity) starts at character position 181 in the WKT description. (SRID 81989000 is not associated with any established coordinate system. Rather, it is for a deliberately invalid coordinate system that was inserted into a test version of the MDSYS.CS_SRS table, and it is not included in the MDSYS.CS_SRS table that is shipped with Oracle Spatial.)

SELECT SDO_CS.VALIDATE_WKT(81989000) FROM DUAL; SDO_CS.VALIDATE_WKT(81989000) -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- FALSE (181)

## SDO_CS.VIEWPORT_TRANSFORM

Format

SDO_CS.VIEWPORT_TRANSFORM(

geom IN SDO_GEOMETRY,

to_srid IN NUMBER

) RETURN SDO_GEOMETRY;

Description

Transforms an optimized rectangle into a valid polygon for use with Spatial operators and functions.

Note:

This function is deprecated, and will not be supported in future releases of Spatial. Instead, use a geodetic MBR to specify the query window, as explained in Section 6.2.3.Parameters

- geom
Geometry whose representation is to be transformed from an optimized rectangle to a valid polygon. The input geometry must have an SRID value of 0 (zero), as explained in the Usage Notes.

- to_srid
The SRID of the coordinate system to be used for the transformation (that is, the SRID to be used in the returned geometry).

`to_srid`

must be either a value in the SRID column of the SDO_COORD_REF_SYS table (described in Section 6.6.9) or NULL.Usage Notes

The geometry passed in must be an optimized rectangle.

If

`to_srid`

is a geodetic SRID, a geometry (not an optimized rectangle) is returned that conforms to the Oracle Spatial requirements for a geodetic geometry (for example, each polygon element's area must be less than one-half the surface area of the Earth).If

`to_srid`

is not a geodetic SRID, an optimized rectangle is returned in which the SRID is set to`to_srid`

.Visualizer applications that work on geodetic data usually treat the longitude and latitude space as a regular Cartesian coordinate system. Fetching the data corresponding to a viewport is usually done with the help of an SDO_FILTER or SDO_GEOM.RELATE operation where the viewport (with an optimized rectangle representation) is sent as the window query. Before release 10.1, this optimized rectangle type could not be used in geodetic space, and therefore this type of viewport query could not be sent to the database. The VIEWPORT_TRANSFORM function was created to provide a workaround to this previous restriction.

The viewport rectangles should be constructed with the SRID value as 0 and input to the function to generate a corresponding valid geodetic polygon. This geodetic polygon can then be used in the SDO_FILTER or SDO_GEOM.RELATE call as the window object.

An SRID value of 0 should only be specified when calling the VIEWPORT_TRANSFORM function. It is not valid in any other context in Spatial.

This function should be used only when the display space is equirectangular (a rectangle), and the data displayed is geodetic.

Examples

The following example specifies the viewport as the whole Earth represented by an optimized rectangle. It returns the names of all four cola markets. (This example uses the definitions from the example in Section 6.11.)

SELECT c.name FROM cola_markets_cs c WHERE SDO_FILTER(c.shape, SDO_CS.VIEWPORT_TRANSFORM( SDO_GEOMETRY( 2003, 0, -- SRID = 0 (special case) NULL, SDO_ELEM_INFO_ARRAY(1,1003,3), SDO_ORDINATE_ARRAY(-180,-90,180,90)), 8307)) = 'TRUE'; NAME -------------------------------- cola_a cola_c cola_b cola_dIf the optimizer does not generate an optimal plan and performance is not as you expect, you can try the following alternative version of the query.

The rest of this chapter provides reference information on the subprograms, listed in alphabetical order.

## SDO_LRS.CLIP_GEOM_SEGMENT

Format

SDO_LRS.CLIP_GEOM_SEGMENT(

geom_segment IN SDO_GEOMETRY,

start_measure IN NUMBER,

end_measure IN NUMBER,

tolerance IN NUMBER DEFAULT 1.0e-8

) RETURN SDO_GEOMETRY;

or

SDO_LRS.CLIP_GEOM_SEGMENT(

geom_segment IN SDO_GEOMETRY,

dim_array IN SDO_DIM_ARRAY,

start_measure IN NUMBER,

end_measure IN NUMBER

) RETURN SDO_GEOMETRY;

Description

Returns the geometry object resulting from a clip operation on a geometric segment.

Note:

SDO_LRS.CLIP_GEOM_SEGMENT and SDO_LRS.DYNAMIC_SEGMENT are synonyms: both functions have the same parameters, behavior, and return value.Parameters

- geom_segment
Cartographic representation of a linear feature.

- dim_array
Dimensional information array corresponding to

`geom_segment`

, usually selected from one of the xxx_SDO_GEOM_METADATA views (described in Section 2.6).- start_measure
Start measure of the geometric segment.

- end_measure
End measure of the geometric segment.

- tolerance
Tolerance value (see Section 1.5.5 and Section 7.6). The default value is 0.00000001.

Usage Notes

An exception is raised if

`geom_segment`

,`start_measure`

, or`end_measure`

is invalid.

`start_measure`

and`end_measure`

can be any points on the geometric segment. They do not have to be in any specific order. For example,`start_measure`

and`end_measure`

can be 5 and 10, respectively, or 10 and 5, respectively.The direction and measures of the resulting geometric segment are preserved (that is, they reflect the original segment).

The _3D format of this function (SDO_LRS.CLIP_GEOM_SEGMENT_3D) is available. For information about _3D formats of LRS functions, see Section 7.4.

For more information about clipping geometric segments, see Section 7.5.3.

Examples

The following example clips the geometric segment representing Route 1, returning the segment from measures 5 through 10. This segment might represent a construction zone. (This example uses the definitions from the example in Section 7.7.)

SELECT SDO_LRS.CLIP_GEOM_SEGMENT(route_geometry, 5, 10) FROM lrs_routes WHERE route_id = 1; SDO_LRS.CLIP_GEOM_SEGMENT(ROUTE_GEOMETRY,5,10)(SDO_GTYPE, SDO_SRID, SDO_POINT(X, -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- SDO_GEOMETRY(3302, NULL, NULL, SDO_ELEM_INFO_ARRAY(1, 2, 1), SDO_ORDINATE_ARRAY( 5, 4, 5, 8, 4, 8, 10, 4, 10))

## SDO_LRS.CONCATENATE_GEOM_SEGMENTS

Format

SDO_LRS.CONCATENATE_GEOM_SEGMENTS(

geom_segment_1 IN SDO_GEOMETRY,

geom_segment_2 IN SDO_GEOMETRY,

tolerance IN NUMBER DEFAULT 1.0e-8

) RETURN SDO_GEOMETRY;

or

SDO_LRS.CONCATENATE_GEOM_SEGMENTS(

geom_segment_1 IN SDO_GEOMETRY,

dim_array_1 IN SDO_DIM_ARRAY,

geom_segment_2 IN SDO_GEOMETRY,

dim_array_2 IN SDO_DIM_ARRAY

) RETURN SDO_GEOMETRY;

Description

Returns the geometry object resulting from the concatenation of two geometric segments.

Parameters

- geom_segment_1
First geometric segment to be concatenated.

- dim_array_1
Dimensional information array corresponding to

`geom_segment_1`

, usually selected from one of the xxx_SDO_GEOM_METADATA views (described in Section 2.6).- geom_segment_2
Second geometric segment to be concatenated.

- dim_array_2
Dimensional information array corresponding to

`geom_segment_2`

, usually selected from one of the xxx_SDO_GEOM_METADATA views (described in Section 2.6).- tolerance
Tolerance value (see Section 1.5.5 and Section 7.6). The default value is 0.00000001.

Usage Notes

An exception is raised if

`geom_segment_1`

or`geom_segment_2`

has an invalid geometry type or dimensionality, or if`geom_segment_1`

and`geom_segment_2`

are based on different coordinate systems.The direction of the first geometric segment is preserved, and all measures of the second segment are shifted so that its start measure is the same as the end measure of the first segment.

The geometry type of

`geom_segment_1`

and`geom_segment_2`

must be line or multiline. Neither can be a polygon.The _3D format of this function (SDO_LRS.CONCATENATE_GEOM_SEGMENTS_3D) is available. For information about _3D formats of LRS functions, see Section 7.4.

For more information about concatenating geometric segments, see Section 7.5.5.

Examples

The following example defines the geometric segment, splits it into two segments, then concatenates those segments. (This example uses the definitions from the example in Section 7.7. The definitions of

`result_geom_1`

## SDO_LRS.FIND_OFFSET

Format

SDO_LRS.FIND_OFFSET(

geom_segment IN SDO_GEOMETRY,

point IN SDO_GEOMETRY,

tolerance IN NUMBER DEFAULT 1.0e-8

) RETURN NUMBER;

or

SDO_LRS.FIND_OFFSET(

geom_segment IN SDO_GEOMETRY,

dim_array IN SDO_DIM_ARRAY,

point IN SDO_GEOMETRY

[, point_dim_array IN SDO_GEOMETRY]

) RETURN NUMBER;

Description

Returns the signed offset (shortest distance) from a point to a geometric segment.

Parameters

- geom_segment
Geometric segment to be checked for distance from

`point`

.- point
Point whose shortest distance from

`geom_segment`

is to be returned.- tolerance
Tolerance value (see Section 1.5.5 and Section 7.6). The default value is 0.00000001.

- dim_array
`geom_segment`

, usually selected from one of the xxx_SDO_GEOM_METADATA views (described in Section 2.6).- point_dim_array
Dimensional information array corresponding to

`point`

, usually selected from one of the xxx_SDO_GEOM_METADATA views (described in Section 2.6).Usage Notes

This function calls the SDO_LRS.PROJECT_PT function format that includes the

`offset`

output parameter: it passes in the geometric segment and point information, and it returns the SDO_LRS.PROJECT_PT`offset`

parameter value. Thus, to find the offset of a point from a geometric segment, you can use either this function or the SDO_LRS.PROJECT_PT function with the`offset`

parameter.An exception is raised if

`geom_segment`

or`point`

has an invalid geometry type or dimensionality, or if`geom_segment`

and`point`

are based on different coordinate systems.For more information about offsets to a geometric segment, see Section 7.1.5.

Examples

The following example returns the offset of point (9,3,NULL) from the geometric segment representing Route 1. (This example uses the definitions from the example in Section 7.7.) As you can see from Figure 7-20 in Section 7.7, the point at (9,3,NULL) is on the right side along the segment, and therefore the offset has a negative value, as explained in Section 7.1.5. The point at (9,3.NULL) is one distance unit away from the point at (9,4,NULL), which is on the segment.

-- Find the offset of point (9,3,NULL) from the road; should return -1. SELECT SDO_LRS.FIND_OFFSET(route_geometry, SDO_GEOMETRY(3301, NULL, NULL, SDO_ELEM_INFO_ARRAY(1, 1, 1), SDO_ORDINATE_ARRAY(9, 3, NULL)) ) FROM lrs_routes WHERE route_id = 1; SDO_LRS.FIND_OFFSET(ROUTE_GEOMETRY,SDO_GEOMETRY(3301,NULL,NULL,SDO_ELEM_INFO_ARR -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- -1

Geometric segment to be checked to see if it falls within the measure range of

`measure`

.- dim_array
`geom_segment`

, usually selected from one of the xxx_SDO_GEOM_METADATA views (described in Section 2.6).- measure
Distance to measure from the start point of

`geom_segment`

.- offset
Distance to measure perpendicularly from the point that is located at

`measure`

units from the start point of`geom_segment`

. The default is 0 (that is, the point is on`geom_segment`

).Usage Notes

This function returns the referenced point. For example, on a highway, the point might represent the location of an accident.

The unit of measurement for

`offset`

is the same as for the coordinate system associated with`geom_segment`

. For geodetic data, the default unit of measurement is meters.With geodetic data using the WGS 84 coordinate system, this function can be used to return the longitude and latitude coordinates of any point on or offset from the segment.

An exception is raised if

`geom_segment`

has an invalid geometry type or dimensionality, or if the location is out of range.The _3D format of this function (SDO_LRS.LOCATE_PT_3D) is available; however, the

`offset`

parameter is not available for SDO_LRS.LOCATE_PT_3D. For information about _3D formats of LRS functions, see Section 7.4.For more information about locating a point on a geometric segment, see Section 7.5.8.

Examples

The following example creates a table for automobile accident data, inserts a record for an accident at the point at measure 9 and on (that is, offset 0) the geometric segment representing Route 1, and displays the data. (The accident table is deliberately oversimplified. This example also uses the route definition from the example in Section 7.7.)

-- Create a table for accidents. CREATE TABLE accidents ( accident_id NUMBER PRIMARY KEY, route_id NUMBER, accident_geometry SDO_GEOMETRY); -- Insert an accident record. DECLARE geom_segment SDO_GEOMETRY; BEGIN SELECT SDO_LRS.LOCATE_PT(a.route_geometry, 9, 0) into geom_segment FROM lrs_routes a WHERE a.route_name = 'Route1'; INSERT INTO accidents VALUES(1, 1, geom_segment); END; / SELECT * from accidents; ACCIDENT_ID ROUTE_ID ----------- ---------- ACCIDENT_GEOMETRY(SDO_GTYPE, SDO_SRID, SDO_POINT(X, Y, Z), SDO_ELEM_INFO, SDO_OR -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 1 1 SDO_GEOMETRY(3301, NULL, NULL, SDO_ELEM_INFO_ARRAY(1, 1, 1), SDO_ORDINATE_ARRAY( 9, 4, 9))

## SDO_LRS.LRS_INTERSECTION

Format

SDO_LRS.LRS_INTERSECTION(

geom_1 IN SDO_GEOMETRY,

dim_array_1 IN SDO_DIM_ARRAY,

geom_2 IN SDO_GEOMETRY,

dim_array_2 IN SDO_DIM_ARRAY

) RETURN SDO_GEOMETRY;

or

SDO_LRS.LRS_INTERSECTION(

geom_1 IN SDO_GEOMETRY,

geom_2 IN SDO_GEOMETRY,

tolerance IN NUMBER

) RETURN SDO_GEOMETRY;

Description

Returns an LRS geometry object that is the topological intersection (AND operation) of two geometry objects where one or both are LRS geometries.

Parameters

- geom_1
Geometry object.

- dim_array_1
Dimensional information array corresponding to

`geom_1`

, usually selected from one of the xxx_SDO_GEOM_METADATA views (described in Section 2.6).- geom_2
Geometry object.

- dim_array_2
Dimensional information array corresponding to

`geom_2`

, usually selected from one of the xxx_SDO_GEOM_METADATA views (described in Section 2.6).- tolerance
Tolerance value (see Section 1.5.5).

Usage Notes

Note:

This function is new with Oracle Spatial release 10.2.0.3.This function performs essentially the same intersection operation as the SDO_GEOM.SDO_INTERSECTION function (described in Chapter 15), except that SDO_LRS.LRS_INTERSECTION is designed to return a valid LRS geometry (point, line string, or multiline string) where one or both of the geometry-related input parameters are LRS geometries. (If neither input geometry is an LRS geometry, this function operates the same as the SDO_GEOM.SDO_INTERSECTION function.).

The returned geometry is an LRS line string, multiline string, or point geometry that includes measure dimension information. The measure values reflect those in the first LRS geometry specified as an input parameter.

The first LRS geometry specified as an input parameter must not be a polygon; it must be a line string, multiline string, or point.

If an LRS line string (geometric segment) intersects a line string (LRS or standard), the result is an LRS point; if an LRS line string intersects a polygon, the result is an LRS line string.

If the function format with

`tolerance`

is used, all geometry objects must be defined using 4-digit SDO_GTYPE values (explained in Section 2.2.1).An exception is raised if

`geom_1`

and`geom_2`

are based on different coordinate systems.Examples

The following example shows an LRS geometric segment (illustrated in Figure 7-20 in Section 7.7) intersected by a vertical line from (8,2) to (8,6). The result is an LRS point geometry, in which the measure value (8) reflects the measure for that point (designated as Exit 3 in Figure 7-20) in the

`geom_1`

geometry. (This example uses the definitions from the example in Section 7.7.)-- Intersection of LRS segment and standard line segment SELECT SDO_LRS.LRS_INTERSECTION(route_geometry, SDO_GEOMETRY(2002, NULL, NULL, SDO_ELEM_INFO_ARRAY(1,2,1), SDO_ORDINATE_ARRAY(8,2, 8,6)), 0.005) FROM lrs_routes WHERE route_id = 1; SDO_LRS.LRS_INTERSECTION(ROUTE_GEOMETRY,SDO_GEOMETRY(2002,NULL,NULL,SDO_ELEM_INF -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- SDO_GEOMETRY(3301, NULL, NULL, SDO_ELEM_INFO_ARRAY(1, 1, 1), SDO_ORDINATE_ARRAY( 8, 4, 8))The following example shows an LRS geometric segment (illustrated in Figure 7-20 in Section 7.7) intersected by a vertical line from (12,2) to (12,6).

## SDO_LRS.MEASURE_RANGE

Format

SDO_LRS.MEASURE_RANGE(

geom_segment IN SDO_GEOMETRY

[, dim_array IN SDO_DIM_ARRAY]

) RETURN NUMBER;

Description

Returns the measure range of a geometric segment, that is, the difference between the start measure and end measure.

Parameters

- geom_segment
Cartographic representation of a linear feature.

- dim_array
`geom_segment`

, usually selected from one of the xxx_SDO_GEOM_METADATA views (described in Section 2.6).Usage Notes

This function subtracts the start measure of

`geom_segment`

from the end measure of`geom_segment`

.The _3D format of this function (SDO_LRS.MEASURE_RANGE_3D) is available. For information about _3D formats of LRS functions, see Section 7.4.

Examples

The following example returns the measure range of the geometric segment representing Route 1. (This example uses the definitions from the example in Section 7.7.)

SELECT SDO_LRS.MEASURE_RANGE(route_geometry) FROM lrs_routes WHERE route_id = 1; SDO_LRS.MEASURE_RANGE(ROUTE_GEOMETRY) ------------------------------------- 27

## SDO_LRS.MEASURE_TO_PERCENTAGE

Format

SDO_LRS.MEASURE_TO_PERCENTAGE(

) RETURN NUMBER;

or

SDO_LRS.MEASURE_TO_PERCENTAGE(

geom_segment IN SDO_GEOMETRY,

dim_array IN SDO_DIM_ARRAY,

measure IN NUMBER

) RETURN NUMBER;

Description

Returns the percentage (0 to 100) that a specified measure is of the measure range of a geometric segment.

Parameters

- geom_segment
Cartographic representation of a linear feature.

- dim_array
`geom_segment`

, usually selected from one of the xxx_SDO_GEOM_METADATA views (described in Section 2.6).- measure
Measure value. This function returns the percentage that this measure value is of the measure range.

Usage Notes

This function returns a number (0 to 100) that is the percentage of the measure range that the specified measure represents. (The measure range is the end measure minus the start measure.) For example, if the measure range of

`geom_segment`

is 50 and`measure`

is 20, the function returns 40 (because 20/50 = 40%).This function performs the reverse of the SDO_LRS.PERCENTAGE_TO_MEASURE function, which returns the measure that corresponds to a percentage value.

An exception is raised if

`geom_segment`

or`measure`

is invalid.Examples

The following example returns the percentage that 5 is of the measure range of the geometric segment representing Route 1. (This example uses the definitions from the example in Section 7.7.) The measure range of this segment is 27, and 5 is approximately 18.5 percent of 27.

) RETURN SDO_GEOMETRY;

Description

Returns the geometric segment at a specified offset from a geometric segment.

Parameters

- geom_segment
Cartographic representation of a linear feature.

- dim_array
`geom_segment`

, usually selected from one of the xxx_SDO_GEOM_METADATA views (described in Section 2.6).- start_measure
Start measure of

`geom_segment`

at which to start the offset operation.- end_measure
End measure of

`geom_segment`

at which to start the offset operation.- offset
Distance to measure perpendicularly from the points along

`geom_segment`

. Positive offset values are to the left of`geom_segment`

; negative offset values are to the right of`geom_segment`

.- tolerance
Tolerance value (see Section 1.5.5 and Section 7.6). The default value is 0.00000001.

- unit
Unit of measurement specification: a quoted string with one or both of the following keywords:

`unit`

and an SDO_UNIT value from the MDSYS.SDO_DIST_UNITS table. See Section 2.8 for more information about unit of measurement specification.

`arc_tolerance`

and an arc tolerance value. See the Usage Notes for the SDO_GEOM.SDO_ARC_DENSIFY function in Chapter 15 for more information about the`arc_tolerance`

keyword.For example: 'unit=km arc_tolerance=0.05'

If the input geometry is geodetic data, this parameter is required, and

`arc_tolerance`

must be specified. If the input geometry is Cartesian or projected data,`arc_tolerance`

has no effect and should not be specified.If this parameter is not specified for a Cartesian or projected geometry, or if the

`arc_tolerance`

keyword is specified for a geodetic geometry but the`unit`

keyword is not specified, the unit of measurement associated with the data is assumed.Usage Notes

`start_measure`

and`end_measure`

can be any points on the geometric segment. They do not have to be in any specific order. For example,`start_measure`

and`end_measure`

can be 5 and 10, respectively, or 10 and 5, respectively.The direction and measures of the resulting geometric segment are preserved (that is, they reflect the original segment).

The geometry type of

`geom_segment`

must be line or multiline. For example, it cannot be a polygon.An exception is raised if

`geom_segment`

,`start_measure`

, or`end_measure`

is invalid.Examples

The following example returns the geometric segment 2 distance units to the left (positive offset 2) of the segment from measures 5 through 10 of Route 1. Note in SDO_ORDINATE_ARRAY of the returned segment that the Y values (6) are 2 greater than the Y values (4) of the relevant part of the original segment. (This example uses the definitions from the example in Section 7.7.)

or

SDO_LRS.PERCENTAGE_TO_MEASURE(

dim_array IN SDO_DIM_ARRAY,

percentage IN NUMBER

) RETURN NUMBER;

Description

Returns the measure value of a specified percentage (0 to 100) of the measure range of a geometric segment.

Parameters

- geom_segment
Cartographic representation of a linear feature.

- dim_array
`geom_segment`

, usually selected from one of the xxx_SDO_GEOM_METADATA views (described in Section 2.6).- percentage
Percentage value. Must be from 0 to 100. This function returns the measure value corresponding to this percentage of the measure range.

Usage Notes

This function returns the measure value corresponding to the specified percentage of the measure range. (The measure range is the end measure minus the start measure.) For example, if the measure range of

`geom_segment`

is 50 and`percentage`

is 40, the function returns 20 (because 40% of 50 = 20).This function performs the reverse of the SDO_LRS.MEASURE_TO_PERCENTAGE function, which returns the percentage value that corresponds to a measure.

An exception is raised if

`geom_segment`

has an invalid geometry type or dimensionality, or if`percentage`

is less than 0 or greater than 100.Examples

The following example returns the measure that is 50 percent of the measure range of the geometric segment representing Route 1. (This example uses the definitions from the example in Section 7.7.) The measure range of this segment is 27, and 50 percent of 27 is 13.5.

`geom_segment`

or`point`

has an invalid geometry type or dimensionality, or if`geom_segment`

and`point`

are based on different coordinate systems.The _3D format of this function (SDO_LRS.PROJECT_PT_3D) is available. For information about _3D formats of LRS functions, see Section 7.4.

For more information about projecting a point onto a geometric segment, see Section 7.5.9.

Examples

The following example returns the point (9,4,9) on the geometric segment representing Route 1 that is closest to the specified point (9,3,NULL). (This example uses the definitions from the example in Section 7.7.)

Parameters

- geom_segment
Cartographic representation of a linear feature.

- dim_array
`geom_segment`

, usually selected from one of the xxx_SDO_GEOM_METADATA views (described in Section 2.6).Usage Notes

## SDO_LRS.REVERSE_GEOMETRY

Format

SDO_LRS.REVERSE_GEOMETRY(

geom IN SDO_GEOMETRY

[, dim_array IN SDO_DIM_ARRAY]

) RETURN SDO_GEOMETRY;

Description

Returns a new geometric segment by reversing the measure values and the direction of the original geometric segment.

Parameters

- geom
Cartographic representation of a linear feature.

- dim_array
Dimensional information array corresponding to

`geom`

, usually selected from one of the xxx_SDO_GEOM_METADATA views (described in Section 2.6).Usage Notes

This function:

Reverses the measure values of

`geom`

That is, the start measure of

`geom`

is the end measure of the returned geometric segment, the end measure of`geom`

is the start measure of the returned geometric segment, and all other measures are adjusted accordingly.Reverses the direction of

`geom`

Compare this function with SDO_LRS.REVERSE_MEASURE, which reverses only the measure values (not the direction) of a geometric segment.

To reverse the vertices of a non-LRS line string geometry, use the SDO_UTIL.REVERSE_LINESTRING function, which is described in Chapter 20.

An exception is raised if

`geom`

has an invalid geometry type or dimensionality. The geometry type must be a line or multiline, and the dimensionality must be 3 (two dimensions plus the measure dimension).The _3D format of this function (SDO_LRS.REVERSE_GEOMETRY_3D) is available. For information about _3D formats of LRS functions, see Section 7.4.

Examples

## SDO_LRS.REVERSE_MEASURE

Format

SDO_LRS.REVERSE_MEASURE(

geom_segment IN SDO_GEOMETRY

[, dim_array IN SDO_DIM_ARRAY]

) RETURN SDO_GEOMETRY;

Description

Returns a new geometric segment by reversing the measure values, but not the direction, of the original geometric segment.

Parameters

- geom_segment
Cartographic representation of a linear feature.

- dim_array
`geom_segment`

, usually selected from one of the xxx_SDO_GEOM_METADATA views (described in Section 2.6).Usage Notes

This function:

Reverses the measure values of

`geom_segment`

That is, the start measure of

`geom_segment`

is the end measure of the returned geometric segment, the end measure of`geom_segment`

is the start measure of the returned geometric segment, and all other measures are adjusted accordingly.Does not affect the direction of

`geom_segment`

Compare this function with SDO_LRS.REVERSE_GEOMETRY, which reverses both the direction and the measure values of a geometric segment.

An exception is raised if

`geom_segment`

has an invalid geometry type or dimensionality.The _3D format of this function (SDO_LRS.REVERSE_MEASURE_3D) is available. For information about _3D formats of LRS functions, see Section 7.4.

Note:

The behavior of the SDO_LRS.REVERSE_MEASURE function changed after release 8.1.7. In release 8.1.7, REVERSE_MEASURE reversed both the measures and the segment direction. However, if you want to have this same behavior with subsequent releases, you must use the SDO_LRS.REVERSE_GEOMETRY function.Examples

The following example reverses the measure values of the geometric segment representing Route 1, but does not affect the direction. (This example uses the definitions from the example in Section 7.7.)

-- First, display the original segment; then, reverse.

measure IN NUMBER) RETURN VARCHAR2;

Description

Sets the measure value of a specified point.

Parameters

- geom_segment
Geometric segment containing the point.

- dim_array
Dimensional information array corresponding to

`geom_segment`

(in the second format) or`point`

(in the fourth format), usually selected from one of the xxx_SDO_GEOM_METADATA views (described in Section 2.6).- point
Point for which the measure value is to be set.

- pt_dim_array
Dimensional information array corresponding to

`point`

(in the second format), usually selected from one of the xxx_SDO_GEOM_METADATA views (described in Section 2.6).- measure
Measure value to be assigned to the specified point.

Usage Notes

The function returns TRUE if the measure value was successfully set, and FALSE if the measure value was not set.

If both

`geom_segment`

and`point`

are specified, the behavior of the procedure depends on whether or not`point`

is a shape point on`geom_segment`

:

If

`point`

is a shape point on`geom_segment`

, the measure value of`point`

is set.If

`point`

is not a shape point on`geom_segment`

, the shape point on`geom_segment`

that is nearest to`point`

is found, and the measure value of that shape point is set.The _3D format of this function (SDO_LRS.SET_PT_MEASURE_3D) is available; however, only the formats that include the

`geom_segment`

parameter are available for SDO_LRS.SET_PT_MEASURE_3D. For information about _3D formats of LRS functions, see Section 7.4.An exception is raised if

`geomK_segment`

or`point`

is invalid.Examples

The following example sets the measure value of point (8,10) to 20. (This example uses the definitions from the example in Section 7.7.)

-- Set the measure value of point 8,10 to 20 (originally 22). DECLARE geom_segment SDO_GEOMETRY; dim_array SDO_DIM_ARRAY; result VARCHAR2(32); BEGIN SELECT a.route_geometry into geom_segment FROM lrs_routes a WHERE a.route_name = 'Route1'; SELECT m.diminfo into dim_array from user_sdo_geom_metadata m WHERE m.table_name = 'LRS_ROUTES' AND m.column_name = 'ROUTE_GEOMETRY'; -- Set the measure value of point 8,10 to 20 (originally 22). result := SDO_LRS.SET_PT_MEASURE (geom_segment, SDO_GEOMETRY(3301, NULL, NULL, SDO_ELEM_INFO_ARRAY(1, 1, 1), SDO_ORDINATE_ARRAY(8, 10, 22)), 20); -- Display the result.

Oracle Spatial User's Guide and Reference provides usage and reference information for indexing and storing spatial data and for developing spatial applications using Oracle Spatial and Oracle Locator.

Oracle Spatial requires the Enterprise Edition of Oracle Database 10g. It is a foundation for the deployment of enterprise-wide spatial information systems, and Web-based and wireless location-based applications requiring complex spatial data management. Oracle Locator is a feature of the Standard and Enterprise Editions of Oracle Database 10g. It offers a subset of Oracle Spatial capabilities (see Appendix B for a list of Locator features) typically required to support Internet and wireless service applications and partner-based geographic information system (GIS) solutions.

The Standard and Enterprise Editions of Oracle Database 10g have the same basic features. However, several advanced features, such as extended data types, are available only with the Enterprise Edition, and some of these features are optional. For example, to use Oracle Database 10g table partitioning, you must have the Enterprise Edition and the Partitioning Option.

For information about the differences between Oracle Database 10g Standard Edition and Oracle Database 10g Enterprise Edition and the features and options that are available to you, see Oracle Database New Features.

Note:

The relational geometry model of Oracle Spatial is no longer supported, effective with Oracle release 9.2. Only the object-relational model is supported.## Audience

This guide is intended for anyone who needs to store spatial data in an Oracle database.

The Spatial routing engine enables you to host an XML-based Web service that provides the following features:

For an individual route request (a start location and an end location): route information (driving distances, estimated driving times, and directions) between the two locations

For a batch route request (multiple routes, with the same start location but different end locations): route information (driving distance and estimated driving time) for each route

For any request, the start and end locations are identified by addresses, geocoded results, or longitude/latitude coordinates.

The routing engine is implemented as a Java 2 Enterprise Edition (J2EE) Web application that you can deploy in either an Oracle Application Server or standalone Oracle Application Server Containers for J2EE (OC4J) environment.

Figure C-1 shows the basic flow of action with the routing engine: a client locates a remote routing engine instance, sends a route request, and processes the route response returned by the routing engine instance.

This chapter contains the following major sections:

## C.1 Deploying and Configuring the Routing Engine

To enable the routine engine to process routing requests and to generate responses, you must deploy the

`routeserver.ear`

file using OC4J or the Oracle Application Server. This section describes the basic steps.

Add the following element inside the <web-site> element in your http-web-site.xml or default-web-site.xml file of OC4J:

<web-app application="routeserver" name="web" load-on-startup="true" root="/routeserver" max-inactivity-time="no shutdown" shared="false" />Use the Oracle Application Server console to deploy the

`routeserver.ear`

file, or add the following element inside the`<application-server>`

element in the`server.xml`

file of OC4J (replace`<ROUTE_SERVER_HOME>`

accordingly):<application name="routeserver" path="<ROUTE_SERVER_HOME>/routeserver.ear" auto-start="true" />Add the following element inside the <application-server> element in the server.xml file of OC4J:

<max-http-connections value="10" />It is important to limit the number of concurrent requests that the Oracle Route Server can process at any given time to prevent

`java.lang.OutOfMemoryError`

errors.Start OC4J using the following command options:

-server -Xms<HEAP_SIZE> -Xmx<HEAP_SIZE> -XX:NewSize=<YOUNG_GENERATION_SIZE> -XX:MaxNewSize=<YOUNG_GENERATION_SIZE> -Dsun.rmi.dgc.server.gcInterval=3600000 -Dsun.rmi.dgc.client.gcInterval=3600000 -verbose:gc (optional)

`<HEAP_SIZE>`

must be at least 512 MB, and has a recommended size of at least 1024 MB (1 GB). Make sure that this memory is physical memory and not virtual memory.

`<YOUNG_GENERATION_SIZE>`

should be one-fourth (25%) of the`<HEAP_SIZE>`

value.-verbose:gc will print all minor and major Java garbage collections. Monitoring these statistics could be useful for memory resource planning. If you find that garbage collections are occurring frequently or are lasting several seconds, you probably need to allocate more physical memory to the Java VM.

Note:

The amount of memory the Java VM will need depends mostly on two parameters: the`<max-http-connections value="..." />`

element in the`<application-server>`

element in`server.xml`

, and the`partition_cache_size_limit`

parameter in`web.xml`

.The following command is an example that starts OC4J. Note that the -config flag is an OC4J command line parameter, not a VM option.

c:\jdk1.4.2\bin\java -server -Xms1024m -Xmx1024m -XX:NewSize=256m -XX:MaxNewSize=256m -Dsun.rmi.dgc.server.gcInterval=3600000 -Dsun.rmi.dgc.client.gcInterval=3600000 -verbose:gc -jar c:\oc4j\j2ee\home\oc4j.jar -config c:\oc4j\j2ee\home\config\server.xmlVerify your deployment by visiting the URL in the following format:

http://<hostname>:<port>/routeserverYou should see a welcome page. You should also see a message in the console window in which you started OC4J indicating that the Oracle Route Server was successfully initialized.

If you do not see a welcome message, the route server is probably not configured properly to run in your environment. In this case, edit the

`<ROUTE_SERVER_HOME>/routeserver/web/WEB-INF/web.xml`

file to reflect your environment and your preferences. (The`web.xml`

file is inside the`routeserver.ear`

file, and it will not be visible until OC4J expands it into the route server directory structure under`<ROUTE_SERVER_HOME>`

.) When you are finished editing, restart OC4J and verify your deployment.Consult the supplied examples. The page

`http://<hostname>:<port>/routeserver/`

has links at the bottom in a section named Test Samples. These examples demonstrate various capabilities of the Oracle Route Server. This is the best way to learn the XML API, which is described in Section C.2.## C.2 Routing Engine XML API

This section explains how to submit route requests in XML format to the routing engine, and it describes the XML document type definitions (DTDs) for the route requests (input) and responses (output). XML is widely used for transmitting structured documents using the HTTP protocol. If an HTTP request (GET or POST method) is used, it is assumed the request has a parameter named

`xml_request`

whose value is a string containing the XML document for the request.A request to the routing engine servlet has the following format:

http://hostname:port/route-server-servlet-path?xml_request=xml-requestIn this format:

hostname is the network path of the server on which the routing engine is running.

port is the port on which the application server listens.

route-server-servlet-path is the routing engine servlet path (for example,

`routeserver/servlet/RouteServerServlet`

).xml-request is the URL-encoded XML request submitted using the HTML GET or POST method.

The input XML is required for all requests. The output will be an XML document.

In an input route (as opposed to batch route) request, you must specify a route ID, and you can specify one or more of the following attributes:

`route_preference`

:`fastest`

or`shortest`

(default). (Note that for batch route requests, the default is`fastest`

.)

`road_preference`

:`highway`

(default) or`local`

`return_hierarchical_directions`

(whether to return hierarchical directions):`true`

or`false`

(default)

`return_driving_directions`

(whether to return driving directions):`true`

(default) or`false`

`return_route_geometry`

(whether to return the line string coordinates for the route):`true`

or`false`

(default)

`return_detailed_geometry`

:`true`

(default; returns detailed geometries) or`false`

(returns generalized geometries)

`distance_unit`

:`kilometer`

,`mile`

(default), or`meter`

`time_unit`

:`hour`

,`minute`

(default), or`second`

`pre_geocoded_locations`

(whether the start and end locations are input locations (address specifications or points) or previously geocoded locations):`true`

(previously geocoded locations) or`false`

(default; input locations)In an input batch route request, you must specify a request ID, a start location, and one or more end locations. Each location must have an ID attribute. You can also specify one or more of the following attributes for the batch route request:

`route_preference`

:`fastest`

(default) or`shortest`

. (Note that for individual route requests, the default is`shortest`

.)

`road_preference`

:`highway`

(default) or`local`

`distance_unit`

:`kilometer`

,`mile`

(default), or`meter`

`time_unit`

:`hour`

,`minute`

(default), or`second`

`sort_by_distance`

(whether to sort the returned routes in ascending order by distance of the end location from the start location:`true`

or`false`

(default)

`cutoff_distance`

(returning only routes where the end location is less than or equal to a specified number of distance units from the start location): (number; default = no limit)

`pre_geocoded_locations`

(whether the start and end locations are input locations (address specifications or points) or previously geocoded locations):`true`

(previously geocoded locations) or`false`

(default; input locations)This section contains the following subsections:

## C.2.1 Route Request and Response Examples

This section contains XML examples of route requests and the responses generated by those requests. One request uses specified addresses, another uses points specified by longitude and latitude coordinates, and another uses previously geocoded locations. For reference information about the available elements and attributes, see Section C.2.2 for requests and Section C.2.3 for responses.

Example C-1 shows a request for the fastest route, preferably using highways, between two offices at specified addresses (in Waltham, Massachusetts and Nashua, New Hampshire), with driving directions for each segment, and using miles for distances and minutes for times.

Example C-1 Route Request with Specified Addresses
