[xquery-talk] xquery and geospatial request

As far as I know, there is no XML native database that supports spatial data. The company I am working for has implemented OGC Web Feature Service that provides access to GML data with backend databases for both XML native database XHive and Oracle. For Xhive, we have to develop spatial index on our own and spatial operators for extending XQuery.

Hi everybody,

I need to store GML feature in  a database and to be able to make 
geospatial request on them.

Do we have a language (extension to xquery) to make such request on a 
XML native database ?
Or are we constrained to  map GML data into object, then store them into 
GIS database ?

Thanks for your response.
