Relative Position Operators

These operators consider the relative position of the bounding boxes. The operators <<, >>, &<, and &> consider the X value for the tbox type and the X coordinates for the stbox type, the operators <<|, |>>, &<|, and |&> consider the Y coordinates for the stbox type, the operators <</, />>, &</, and /&> consider the Z coordinates for the stbox type, and the operators <<#, #>>, #&<, and #&> consider the time dimension for the tbox and stbox types. The operators raise an error if both boxes do not have the required dimension.

The operators for the numeric value dimension of the tbox type are given next.

The operators for the spatial value dimension of the stbox type are given next.

The operators for the time dimension of the tbox and stbox types are as follows.
