In the documentation says is "Contains the byte stream of the point coordinates that define the geometry"... but how does one extract the points from the binary?

I'm NOT looking for ST_TOTEXT, that's extremely slow and bulky. I want to convert it to text on the client side not the server side.

  • Umm.... you don't. The format is only semi-documented, if you can forage through 8.0-8.12 docs not searchable by ArcGIS.com to find references. It's far better to use Well-Known Binary (though this will lose CAD and Anno, if present). – Vince May 11 at 0:08
