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))
