Can you post an example of what are you looking for? I'm sure the function I've showed you can make the trick.

You will have to use CLR functions. Please check this link (Query 4 - advanced topics).

point = latitude 24.877956 longitude -54.456652

CREATE TABLE [Polygon] (
      [PolygonID] [int],
      [PointNum] [int],
      [Lat] [numeric](10, 6),
      [Lon] [numeric](10, 6)
)
What I need to do, is come up with a script that will determine which Polygon contains each point. I'd like to be able to assign a PolygonID to each record in the Point table, or give it a 0 if there is no polygon that contains that point.
I'm looking for a way to do this within SQL Server (or possibly with the use of an extended stored procedure if necessary).

I'm not an expert in geography, so I will need your help here. In the example provided, can you explain in English how do I know if that point is in that polygon?

that is exacly what I'm asking to solve. I do have examples in other program languages but not as function or stored procedure in mssql.

Yeah, but in order for me to produce an algorithm I need to understand the logic of your problem. That's why I'm asking you to explain in English (not in SQL) how do I know whether a point is in one polygon or not.
Also, have you checked the spatial functions I've posted above? There's a specific CLR function that check point in polygon. Have a look again.

AngelIII I disagree. I have indicated that to do this the asker will need to use the Spatial library in comment http:#a24391825
