Before you can use the ST_Geometry, MBR, and MBB data types, your system must meet the following requirements:
  • You must have a C or C++ compiler on a Teradata node prior to running the Database Initialization Program (DIP) during installation.
  • You must run the DIPGEO script file to create the Teradata Database infrastructure to support geospatial data.
    The DIPGEO script is normally run automatically as part of executing the DIPALL script of the DIP utility during system installation. For more information on the DIP utility, see Teradata Vantageā„¢ - Database Utilities , B035-1102 .
