2 GeoRaster Data Types and Related Structures

The object-relational implementation of GeoRaster consists of a set of object data types for storing data and system data.

Each image or gridded raster data is stored in a column of type SDO_GEORASTER, and the blocks in that raster data are stored in a raster data table of type SDO_RASTER, as explained and illustrated in GeoRaster Physical Storage. This chapter contains the following major sections.
