ReorientObject (geography Data Type)

SQL Server 2012

Returns a geography instance with interchanged interior regions and exterior regions.

This geography data type method supports FullGlobe instances or spatial instances that are larger than a hemisphere.

.ReorientObject (geography)

Is another geography instance on which ReorientObject() is invoked.

SQL Server return type: geography

CLR return type: SqlGeography

This method changes the ring orientation of all Polygons in a GeometryCollection but does not remove or change any Points or Linestrings in the given collection.

If a GeometryCollection is passed to this method, each instance in the collection is reoriented, but the collection as a whole is not reoriented.

DECLARE @R GEOGRAPHY = GEOGRAPHY::Parse('Polygon((-10 -10, -10 10, 10 10, 10 -10, -10 -10))');
SELECT @R.ReorientObject().STAsText();
--Result: POLYGON ((10 10, -10 10, -10 -10, 10 -10, 10 10))
