ST_LocateAlong — Returns the point(s) on a geometry that match a measure value.


geometry ST_LocateAlong(geometry geom_with_measure, float8 measure, float8 offset = 0);


Returns the location(s) along a measured geometry that have the given measure values. The result is a Point or MultiPoint. Polygonal inputs are not supported.

If offset is provided, the result is offset to the left or right of the input line by the specified distance. A positive offset will be to the left, and a negative one to the right.


Use this function only for linear geometries with an M component

The semantic is specified by the ISO/IEC 13249-3 SQL/MM Spatial standard.

Availability: 1.1.0 by old name ST_Locate_Along_Measure.

Changed: 2.0.0 in prior versions this used to be called ST_Locate_Along_Measure.

This function supports M coordinates.

This method implements the SQL/MM specification.
