ST_3DPerimeter — Returns the 3D perimeter of a polygonal geometry.


float ST_3DPerimeter(geometry geomA);


Returns the 3-dimensional perimeter of the geometry, if it is a polygon or multi-polygon. If the geometry is 2-dimensional, then the 2-dimensional perimeter is returned.

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

Changed: 2.0.0 In prior versions this used to be called ST_Perimeter3D
