Geospatial information identifies the geographic location of features and boundaries on the planet. Geospatial types address the need to store, manage, retrieve, manipulate, and analyze geospatial information by governmental bodies and commercial enterprises. For example, local governments might use geospatial data for city planning, traffic management, or accident investigation.

You can use geospatial types to represent geometries having up to three dimensions.

Vantage geospatial data types define methods that perform geometric calculations and test for spatial relationships between two geospatial values.
