STGeometryType (geometry Data Type)

Returns the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) type name represented by a geometry instance.

.STGeometryType ()

SQL Server return type: nvarchar(4000)

CLR return type: SqlString

The OGC type names that can be returned by STGeometryType() are Point, LineString, Polygon, GeometryCollection, MultiPoint, MultiLineString, and MultiPolygon.

The following example uses STGeometryType() to create a Polygon instance and confirms that it is a polygon.

DECLARE @g geometry;
SET @g = geometry::STGeomFromText('POLYGON((0 0, 3 0, 3 3, 0 3, 0 0))', 0);
SELECT @g.STGeometryType();
