@ — Returns `TRUE`

if A's bounding box is contained by B's.

`boolean `

geometry **@**(`A` , geometry `B` `)`

;

The `@`

operator returns `TRUE`

if the bounding box of geometry A is completely contained by the bounding box of geometry B.

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