teradataml.geospatial.geodataframe.GeoDataFrame.to_binary = to_binary(self)
DESCRIPTION:
    Returns the well-known binary (WKB) representation of a Geometry value.
 
PARAMETERS:
    None
 
SUPPORTED GEOMETRY TYPES:
    All Geometry types.
 
RAISES:
    TypeError, ValueError, TeradataMlException
 
RETURNS:
    GeoDataFrame with result column containing BLOB value
    The maximum size of the return value is 16 MB (the exact maximum is 16 MB - 1 KB).
 
EXAMPLES:
    from teradataml import GeoDataFrame, load_example_data
    from teradataml import Point, LineString, Polygon
    # Load example data.
    load_example_data("geodataframe", "sample_shapes")
    # Create a GeoDataFrame.
    geodf = GeoDataFrame("sample_shapes")
    print(geodf)
    
    
    # Example 1: Get the well-known binary (WKB) representation of geometry values
    #            in column 'points'.
    # Let's select only few columns from GeoDataFrame.
    points_lines = geodf.select(["skey", "points", "linestrings"])
    points_lines.to_binary()
