Sdo_distance Does Not Respect Axis Order (Doc ID 1622099.1)

Last updated on FEBRUARY 21, 2014

Applies to:

Oracle Spatial and Graph - Version 11.2.0.4 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Using a GIS application storing spatial data in EPSG 4979 system. with "latidude,longitude,height". a query from sdo_coord_axes shows that oracle spatial
should know the axis order. but when using sdo_distance function it seem as the interpretation would be longitude,latitude.
