box2d — A 2-dimensional bounding box. Often used to describe the 2D extent of a geometry or collection of geometries.

Description

box2d is a spatial data type used to represent the two-dimensional enclosing box of a geometry or collection of geometries. For example, the ST_Extent aggregate function returns a box2d object.

The representation contains the values xmin, ymin, xmax, ymax. These are the minimum and maxium values of the X and Y extents.
