A **MultiPoint** is a collection of zero or more points. The boundary of a **MultiPoint** instance is empty.

## Examples

The following example creates a `geometry MultiPoint`

instance with SRID 23 and two points: one point with the coordinates (2, 3), one point with the coordinates (7, 8), and a Z value of 9.5.

```
DECLARE @g geometry;
SET @g = geometry::STGeomFromText('MULTIPOINT((2 3), (7 8 9.5))', 23);
```

This `MultiPoint`

instance can also be expressed using `STMPointFromText()`

as shown below.

```
DECLARE @g geometry;
SET @g = geometry::STMPointFromText('MULTIPOINT((2 3), (7 8 9.5))', 23);
```

The following example uses the method `STGeometryN()`

to retrieve a description of the first point in the collection.

```
SELECT @g.STGeometryN(1).STAsText();
```
