# MI_Intersects

## Description

Determines if one geometry object intersects another geometry object.

## Syntax

MI_Intersects ( geometry1, geometry2 )

## Arguments

`geometry1` and `geometry2` are geometry objects (or expressions).

## Example

Determines if the specified box intersects any of the country geometries.

`select MI_Intersects(MI_Box(-13.36676789,8.05796847,79.06334219,62.70540978,'epsg:4326'),[Geometry_Column]) from countries where country = ANY ('Mauritania','Mali','Algeria')`

## Remarks

Returns true if `geometry1` intersects `geometry2`, false otherwise. If either `geometry1` or `geometry2` are null, false is returned. The function is performed using the coordinate system of the first argument (`geometry1`).
