Return Types

SQL Server return type: bit

CLR return type: SqlBoolean


Two geography instances are disjoint if the intersection of their point sets is empty.

This method always returns null if the spatial reference IDs (SRIDs) of the geography instances do not match.


The following example uses STDisjoint() to test two geography instances to see if they are spatially disjoint.

DECLARE @g geography;  
DECLARE @h geography;  
SET @g = geography::STGeomFromText('LINESTRING(-122.360 47.656, -122.343 47.656)', 4326);  
SET @h = geography::STGeomFromText('POINT(-122.34900 47.65100)', 4326);  
SELECT @g.STDisjoint(@h);
