Remarks

IsNull can be used to test whether a geography instance is null. This can produce somewhat confusing results, returning 0 if the instance is not null, but null if the instance is null.

This method is primarily used by the SQL Server infrastructure; it is recommended that you use the T-SQL predicate IS NULL to test whether a geography instance is null. For more information on the T-SQL predicate IS NULL, see IS NULL (Transact-SQL).
