The `&>`

operator returns `TRUE`

if the bounding box of geometry A
overlaps or is to the right of the bounding box of geometry B, or more accurately, overlaps or is NOT to the left
of the bounding box of geometry B.

This operand will make use of any indexes that may be available on the geometries. |
