12.16.9.2 Spatial Relation Functions That Use Minimum Bounding Rectangles

MySQL provides several MySQL-specific functions that test the relationship between minimum bounding rectangles (MBRs) of two geometries g1 and g2. The return values 1 and 0 indicate true and false, respectively.

The bounding box of a point is interpreted as a point that is both boundary and interior.

The bounding box of a straight horizontal or vertical line is interpreted as a line where the interior of the line is also boundary. The endpoints are boundary points.

If any of the parameters are geometry collections, the interior, boundary, and exterior of those parameters are those of the union of all elements in the collection.

Functions in this section detect arguments in either Cartesian or geographic spatial reference systems (SRSs), and return results appropriate to the SRS.

Unless otherwise specified, functions in this section handle their arguments as follows:

These MBR functions are available for testing geometry relationships:
