Difficult spatial query using MapInfo

Posted on 2002-07-22
Last Modified: 2008-03-06
I have a relation/ table (table1) of sites/ land areas. The relation consist of the attributes/ columns site_id (integer), sub_site_id (integer) and spat_obj (wich is the spatial object representing the site). All the sites sharing the same site_id are supposed to touch each other (at least sharing a point) either directly or indirectly (trough a third site sharing the same site_id).

Unfortunately "supposted to" is not the same as "is". Can somebody help me with a query that picks out the sites that shares site_id but don't touch each other?

Did you check the mapinfo site.

I ran into a query to check for "inside an area":

But under >Mapinfo >SQL select of the link:
There are a lot of other queries defined.
