Ellipse Data Type? Best practices for elliptical data? [message #75829] Mon, 17 May 2004 11:59

I'm developing a GIS app for Oracle Spatial (9i r2) that requires me to enter elliptical data (lat/lon center, major/minor axis length, rotation angle).

In my reading it appears that Oracle Spatial does not provide native support for ellipses. Am I wrong?

Even if that's the case, it seems there would be a way to represent an ellipse using a multi-line set of arcs, or something like that. Can anyone share with me their best practices on how to represent ellipse data?
