geo.ST_Contains() function

The geo.ST_Contains() function is experimental and subject to change at any time. By using this function, you accept the risks of experimental functions.

The geo.ST_Contains() function tests if the specified region contains the specified geographic information system (GIS) geometry and returns true or false.

Function type: Test

import "experimental/geo"

geo.ST_Contains(
  region: {lat: 40.7, lon: -73.3, radius: 20.0},
  geometry: {lon: 39.7515, lat: 15.08433}
)

// Returns false

Parameters

region

The region to test. Specify record properties for the shape. See Region definitions.

Data type: Record

geometry

The GIS geometry to test. Can be either point or linestring geometry. See GIS geometry definitions.

Data type: Record

Examples

Test if geographic points are inside of a region
import "experimental/geo"

region = {
  minLat: 40.51757813,
  maxLat: 40.86914063,
  minLon: -73.65234375,
  maxLon: -72.94921875
}

  |> map(fn: (r) => ({
    r with st_contains: geo.ST_Contains(region: region, geometry: {lat: r.lat, lon: r.lon})

Test if tracks are inside of a region
import "experimental/geo"

  maxLat: 40.86914063,
  minLon: -73.65234375,
  maxLon: -72.94921875
}
