Last updated on JANUARY 31, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Spatial and Graph - Version 12.1.0.2 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

A Spatial query using the SDO_RELATE operator on the same data may return a different result in 12c than it did in 11g.
In summary, 

on 12c a small box returning all data of the table works.
but a larger box, does not return the result
and a larger box again, returns the expected result.

In 11g, the expected result is returned in all cases.
