ST_Touches — Returns true if two geometries have at least one point in common, but their interiors do not intersect.

`boolean `

geometry
**ST_Touches**(`A`, geometry
`B``)`

;

Returns `TRUE`

if A and B intersect,
but their interiors do not intersect. Equivalently, A and B have at least one point in common,
and the common points lie in the intersection of their boundaries.
For Point/Point inputs the relationship is always `FALSE`

,
since points do not have a boundary.

In mathematical terms, this relationship is expressed as:

This relationship holds if the DE-9IM Intersection Matrix for the two geometries matches one of:

This function automatically includes a bounding box comparison
that makes use of any spatial indexes that are available on the geometries.
