To simplify information that pertains to a subtype of ST_Geometry, this documentation uses the name of the subtype, although Teradata Vantage does not support actual instances of the subtype.

For example, consider a method that returns an ST_Geometry type that represents an ST_Point. Rather than discuss the return type as “an ST_Geometry type that represents an ST_Point” the topic discusses the return type as an ST_Point type.
