This predicate checks if a geometry is "spatially equal" to another geometry (i.e. the ordering of points is irrelevant for this equality). For example:

  stGeomFromText("LINESTRING (-1 -1, 1 1)"),
  stGeomFromText("LINESTRING (1 1, -1 -1)")

The result being, for example

| ST_Equals |
| true      |
