H3_GRID_PATH

Returns an ARRAY of the IDs of the H3 cells that represent the line between two cells. The IDs in the returned ARRAY are INTEGER values (if INTEGER values were provided as the input IDs) or VARCHAR values containing the hexadecimal IDs (if hexadecimal IDs were provided as the input IDs).

Syntax

H3_GRID_PATH( <cell_id_1> , <cell_id_2> )
Copy

Arguments

cell_id_1

An INTEGER that represents the H3 cell ID (index), or a VARCHAR that represents the cell ID in hexadecimal format.

cell_id_2

An INTEGER that represents the H3 cell ID (index), or a VARCHAR that represents the cell ID in hexadecimal format.

Returns

Returns an ARRAY of the IDs of H3 cells that represent the line between the cells specified by cell_id_1 and cell_id_2. The IDs are in one of the following formats:

  • If cell_id_1 and cell_id_2 are INTEGER values, the function returns the IDs as INTEGER values.

  • If cell_id_1 and cell_id_2 are VARCHAR values containing the hexadecimal IDs, the function returns the hexadecimal IDs as VARCHAR values.

Usage Notes

The two input cell IDs must use the same resolution.

Examples

The following example returns an ARRAY of the IDs of H3 cells that represent the line between the cells with the IDs 617540519103561727 and 617540519052967935 (both specified as INTEGER values).

SELECT H3_GRID_PATH(617540519103561727, 617540519052967935);
