To do this I would use two tools: Intersect (Analysis): Computes a geometric intersection of the input features. Features or portions of features which overlap in all layers and/or feature classes will be written to the output feature class. then Summary Statistics (Analysis) Calculates summary statistics for field(s) in a table.
ST_Collect is probably not the function you are looking for, as this simply combines geometries into a geometry collection of some type, and does not actually union/dissolve them. ST_Union, on the other hand, does dissolve overlaps, and assuming polygonal input (which is most probable in conjunction with ST_Buffer and an input table called point), and ...
Try register your VIEW this manner: INSERT INTO views_geometry_columns (view_name, view_geometry, view_rowid, f_table_name, f_geometry_column, read_only) VALUES ('buffer500m', 'geometry', 'ROWID', 'point', 'geom', 1); read_only option boolean 1 for read only VIEW - read_only option boolean 0 for updatable VIEW. In Spatialite Cookbook not consign ...
When buffering (among other distance related operations) in a geographic coordinate system, your result may appear or be distorted in 2D because geographic is on a sphere/ellipsoid, not flat. Geographic uses angular degrees for measurement, and a degree of longitude can vary significantly in terms of distance depending on latitude (which is relatively ...
If you create a model in the model builder function, you can see the % completed bar. I like to do this when processing large amounts of data so I can monitor the progress. Results Window should do the same thing but doesn't.
