ST_SetSRID - Amazon Redshift
Services or capabilities described in Amazon Web Services documentation might vary by Region. To see the differences applicable to the China Regions, see Getting Started with Amazon Web Services in China (PDF).


ST_SetSRID returns a geometry that is the same as input geometry, except updated with the value input for the spatial reference system identifier (SRID).


ST_SetSRID(geom, srid)



A value of data type GEOMETRY or an expression that evaluates to a GEOMETRY type.


A value of data type INTEGER that represents a SRID.

Return type


The SRID value of the returned geometry is set to srid.

If geom or srid is null, then null is returned.

If srid is negative, then an error is returned.


The following SQL sets the SRID value of a linestring.

SELECT ST_AsEWKT(ST_SetSRID(ST_GeomFromText('LINESTRING(77.29 29.07,77.42 29.26,77.27 29.31,77.29 29.07)'),50));
