Returns all points whose distance from an ST_Geometry value is less than or equal to a specified distance.

 

Argument …

Specifies …

adistance

a FLOAT for the distance from the geometry value to the buffer.

Returns an ST_Geometry value.

All ST_Geometry types

Note: This method can be called on 3D geometries (those that include z coordinates). However, the z coordinate is dropped, and only x and y coordinates are returned.

The adistance argument is measured in the linear units of measure in the spatial reference system of the ST_Geometry value.
