ST_3DDFullyWithin — Returns true if all of the 3D geometries are within the specified distance of one another.


boolean ST_3DDFullyWithin(geometry g1, geometry g2, double precision distance);


Returns true if the 3D geometries are fully within the specified distance of one another. The distance is specified in units defined by the spatial reference system of the geometries. For this function to make sense, the source geometries must both be of the same coordinate projection, having the same SRID.


This function call will automatically include a bounding box comparison that will make use of any indexes that are available on the geometries.

Availability: 2.0.0

This function supports 3d and will not drop the z-index.

This function supports Polyhedral surfaces.
