## Name

ST_ForceCollection — Convert the geometry into a GEOMETRYCOLLECTION.

## Synopsis

`geometry ST_ForceCollection(`geometry geomA`)`;

## Descrizione

Converts the geometry into a GEOMETRYCOLLECTION. This is useful for simplifying the WKB representation.

Miglioramento: nella versione 2.0.0 è stato introdotto il supporto per le superfici poliedriche.

Availability: 1.2.2, prior to 1.3.4 this function will crash with Curves. This is fixed in 1.3.4+

Changed: 2.1.0. Up to 2.0.x this was called ST_Force_Collection.

Questa funzione supporta le Polyhedral Surface.

Questa funzione supporta il 3d e non distrugge gli z-index.

Questo metodo supporta le Curve e le Circular String.

## Esempi

```SELECT  ST_AsEWKT(ST_ForceCollection('POLYGON((0 0 1,0 5 1,5 0 1,0 0 1),(1 1 1,3 1 1,1 3 1,1 1 1))'));

GEOMETRYCOLLECTION(POLYGON((0 0 1,0 5 1,5 0 1,0 0 1),(1 1 1,3 1 1,1 3 1,1 1 1)))

SELECT ST_AsText(ST_ForceCollection('CIRCULARSTRING(220227 150406,2220227 150407,220227 150406)'));
