geo functions
The table below lists all the
geo built-in
functions (in this namespace:

).

You can also view these functions broken down by category:

Use the following geospatial built-in functions to perform operations on geospatial values, such as region containment or intersection, and conversion between MarkLogic geospatial primitive values and standard formats such as WKT.
