SQL Server 2008: Using the Geometry Data Type to Work with 3 and 4 Dimensions

  • Comments 2

I just recently got finished doing a few MSDN gigs and was asked by Lee W. if you can use the new SQL Server 2008 Geometry data type to store 3D info.  I honestly didn't know so poked around the Books Online (BOL) and, sure enough, you can do it.  Here is a friggin great post on just general use of the new data types and, in the section entitled "Displaying WKT in 2, 3, & 4 Dimensions", you will find some great info on "doing" the dimensions muhahahah
