Applies to:Oracle Spatial and Graph - Version 22.214.171.124 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.
The geometries are compound polygons oriented counter-clockwise which is correct
These are valid geometries
Oracle reports error:
ORA-13367: wrong orientation for interior/exterior rings
Cause: In an Oracle Spatial geometry, the exterior and/or interior rings are not oriented correctly.
Action: Be sure that the exterior rings are oriented counterclockwise and the interior rings are oriented clockwise.
When they are valid geometries
RECTIFY_GEOMETRY would validate them but there should not be a need to run them through RECTIFY_GEOMETRY
