Tessellation and tessellation functions can improve database performance with geospatial data when geospatial indexes are not available. With the introduction of true geospatial indexing in Teradata Database, tessellation is not necessary, however, tessellation remains available for compatibility with earlier releases of Teradata Database. This appendix describes the deprecated tessellation functions and methods that are still available in Teradata Database.
