This method throws an ArgumentException if the input is not valid.

The following example uses STGeomCollFromText() to create a geography instance.

DECLARE @g geography;  
DECLARE @g geography;  
SET @g = geography::STGeomCollFromText('GEOMETRYCOLLECTION ( POINT(-122.34900 47.65100), LINESTRING(-122.360 47.656, -122.343 47.656) )', 4326);
