ST_LineLocatePoint — 返回线上最接近点的分数位置。


float8 ST_LineLocatePoint(geometry a_linestring, geometry a_point);

float8 ST_LineLocatePoint(geography a_linestring, geography a_point, boolean use_spheroid = true);


返回 0 到 1 之间的浮点数,表示 LineString 上距离给定 Point 最近的点的位置,作为 2d 线长度的一部分。

您可以使用返回的位置来提取点 (ST_LineInterpolatePoint) 或子字符串 (ST_LineSubstring)。



更改:2.1.0。 在 2.0.x 之前,这称为 ST_Line_Locate_Point。
