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      |

This example using jOOQ:

stEquals(geometry1, geometry2)

Translates to the following dialect specific expressions:

st_equals(geometry1, geometry2)


((st_equal(geometry1, geometry2) = 'TRUE'))


geometry1.STEquals(geometry2) = 1
