## Name

&&(box2df,box2df) — Returns `TRUE`

if two 2D float precision bounding boxes (BOX2DF) intersect each other.

## Synopsis

`boolean `**&&**(

box2df
`A`
,
box2df
`B`
`)`

;

## Description

The `&&`

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.

## Examples

SELECT ST_MakeBox2D(ST_Point(0,0), ST_Point(2,2)) && ST_MakeBox2D(ST_Point(1,1), ST_Point(3,3)) AS overlaps;
overlaps
