&&(box2df,box2df) — Returns
TRUE if two 2D float precision bounding boxes (BOX2DF) intersect each other.
&& operator returns
TRUE if two 2D bounding boxes A and B intersect each other, using float precision. This means that if A (or B) is a (double precision) box2d, it will be internally converted to a float precision 2D bounding box (BOX2DF)
This operator is intended to be used internally by BRIN indexes, more than by users.
Availability: 2.3.0 support for Block Range INdexes (BRIN) was introduced. Requires PostgreSQL 9.5+.
This method supports Circular Strings and Curves
This function supports Polyhedral surfaces.
