This chapter describes the geospatial type data formats supported by Teradata Database.

Data formats include the well-known text (WKT) and well-known binary (WKB) representations of an ST_Geometry value. Client applications can load geospatial data by passing the data in the WKT or WKB format.

This chapter also describes how to load and unload geospatial data, including details on the Teradata data loading and unloading tools that you can use to convert geospatial data into a format that is compatible with the Teradata geospatial UDTs.
