box3d — A 3-dimensional bounding box. Often used to describe the 3D extent of a geometry or collection of geometries.


box3d is a postgis spatial data type used to represent the three-dimensional enclosing box of a geometry or collection of geometries. For example, the ST_3DExtent aggregate function returns a box3d object.

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