KB10660 - Writing data to OpenGIS SQL database layer uses Well Known Binary (WKB) format.

Default DK and Editor support for the OpenGIS (OGC) Simple Features Specification for SQL storage type is OpenGISBlob, which reflects the WKB (Well Known Binary) format. A DK developer can change the storage type to OpenGISNormalized, which is similar to WKT (Well Known Text), but with the x and y coordinate values organized as separate database columns.
