ST_Relate(ST_Geometry) method for type ST_Geometry

Determines how a geometry value is spatially related to another geometry value by returning an intersection matrix. The ST_Relate method returns a 9-character string from the Dimensionally Extended 9 Intersection Model (DE-9IM) to describe the pair-wise relationship between two spatial data items. For example, the ST_Relate method determines if an intersection occurs between the geometries, and the geometry of the resulting intersection, if it exists.
