Overview (Snowflake)


Please always keep the schema name SEDONA (e.g., SEDONA.ST_GeomFromWKT) when you use Sedona functions to avoid conflicting with Snowflake's built-in functions.

SedonaSQL supports SQL/MM Part3 Spatial SQL Standard. It includes four kinds of SQL operators as follows.

  • Constructor: Construct a Geometry given an input string or coordinates
  • Example: ST_GeomFromWKT (string). Create a Geometry from a WKT String.
  • Documentation: Here
  • Function: Execute a function on the given column or columns
  • Example: ST_Distance (A, B). Given two Geometry A and B, return the Euclidean distance of A and B.
  • Documentation: Here
  • Aggregate function: Return the aggregated value on the given column
  • Example: ST_Envelope_Aggr (Geometry column). Given a Geometry column, calculate the entire envelope boundary of this column.
  • Documentation: Here
  • Predicate: Execute a logic judgement on the given columns and return true or false
  • Example: ST_Contains (A, B). Check if A fully contains B. Return "True" if yes, else return "False".
