From what we have learned so far, a table/column implementation matrix can be produced that will allow us to implement all possible variations of the SQL/MM Spatial standard. In the following diagram, the matrix is implemented only for the
ST_POINT subtype. However, included with this book are a set of SQL files that provide an implementation of the standard's
ST_* geometry types. No Primary Key attribute and constraint text is included for brevity's sake in any of the implementations shown in the following diagram:
Because some Oracle geometry subtypes (CircularString) can only be identified by functions that ...
