STDistance (geometry Data Type)
Returns the shortest distance between a point in a geometry instance and a point in another geometry instance.
|Applies to: SQL Server (SQL Server 2008 through current version), Azure SQL Database.|
.STDistance ( other_geometry )
Is another geometry instance from which to measure the distance between the instance on which
STDistance() is invoked. If other_geometry is an empty set,
STDistance() returns null.
SQL Server return type: float
CLR return type: SqlDouble
STDistance() always returns null if the spatial reference IDs (SRIDs) of the geometry instances do not match.
