#5266 closed patch (fixed)

[Enhacement] ST_ShortestLine and ST_ClosestPoint support with geography

Reported by: latot Owned by: pramsey
Priority: medium Milestone: PostGIS 3.4.0
Component: postgis Version: 3.3.x
Keywords: Cc: latot, pramsey


Hi all!, There is a bunch of non-trivial functions of geometry that are not implemented, I think would be great to have them, for now I'm reporting this one!

ST_ShortestLine for now only supports geometry type, would be great if there is the geography one too.

Maybe in ST_Distance there is a important sections that can be reusable, because it supports geography, and for the min distance maybe there is the shortest line too.

From Esteban Zimanyi:

Mobilitydb implemented this in their geography_functions set here:

They also have in there ST_LineSubstring, ST_LineInterpolatePoint, ST_LineLocatePoint

More Prep for release

  • Add in missing NEWS about ST_ClosesPoint and ST_ShortestLine for geography (credit MobilityDB) References #5266 for PostGIS 3.4.0
  • Add in missing docs and notes about ST_Project and ST_LineExtend
  • Disable PDF local translated building for now only build de and fr until we resolve other issues
Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
