I am looking for some documentation or manual or reference guide for Netezza Spatial Functions.

Any idea where can I get the same.

Thank you.

Are you using Netezza with ArcGIS? – Kirk Kuykendall Jun 21 '13 at 18:57
Short answer is no I have found that Netezza has added spatial data and functions so I would like to go though that and what ever I have created in my python script using arcpy that I can migrate to Netezza using spatial functions. So I am looking for the functions documentation. – Dhams Jun 21 '13 at 19:52

The Netezza Spatial documentation that I use was included in the download from the IBM\Netezza portal\ftp site.

As in, along with the nz-analytics-v2.0.3 download, there are nz-analyticsdoc-v2.0.3 and nz-analyticsdochtml-v2.0.3 downloads.

Unpackaging nz-analyticsdoc-v2.0.3, you'll find two pdfs: Netezza_Spatial_Package_Reference_Guide-2.0.3.pdf Netezza_Spatial_Package_Users_Guide.pdf

I've never found them online.

I would talk to whoever maintains your Netezza Appliance, or failing that, an IBM rep.
