   [$options as xs:string*]
) as xs:boolean


Compares geospatial regions to see if they fulfill the 'crosses' DE-9IM relation.

region-1 The first geospatial region to compare. This region is the left operand of crosses.
region-2 The second geospatial region to compare. This region is the right operand of crosses.
options Options to this operation. The default is (). Available options:
Use the given coordinate system. Valid values are:
The WGS84 coordinate system with degrees as the angular unit.
The WGS84 coordinate system with radians as the angular unit.
The WGS84 coordinate system at double precision with degrees as the angular unit.
The WGS84 coordinate system at double precision with radians as the angular unit.
The ETRS89 coordinate system.
The ETRS89 coordinate system at double precision.
The raw (unmapped) coordinate system.
The raw coordinate system at double precision.
Use the coordinate system at the given precision. Allowed values: float and double.
Measure distance, radii of circles, and tolerance in the specified units. Allowed values: miles (default), km, feet, meters.
Tolerance is the largest allowable variation in geometry calculations. If the distance between two points is less than tolerance, then the two points are considered equal. For the raw coordinate system, use the units of the coordinates. For geographic coordinate systems, use the units specified by the units option.

Usage Notes

This function determines whether the two regions R1=$region-1 and R2=$region-2 satisfy the relationship R1 crosses R2.

The operations are defined by the Dimensionally Extended nine-Intersection Model (DE-9IM) of spatial relations.

The value of the precision option takes precedence over that implied by the governing coordinate system name, including the value of the coordinate-system option. For example, if the governing coordinate system is "wgs84/double" and the precision option is "float", then the operation uses single precision. If $region-1 or $region-2 is a column, the column's coordinate system will take precedence over the coordinate-system option. If both $region-1 and $region-2 are columns, the query will run unoptimized. Queries with one region column and a region literal will be optimized.
