What does the ST stand for in ST_Geometry, etc

We are using ST_Geometry in oracle... But we may have to import a large number of features from a SDO_Geometry oracle system that has been used with Autodesk software. I was wondering:


1. What the ST and SDO stand for?

  •       ST = storage type, spatial type?   
  •       SDO = spatial data object?

2. Suggested workflow for the conversion?

  • Dump data with Autodesk dwg or shapefile and consume with esri?
  • Is there a way to pull the data into ST_Geometry from SDO_Geometry at a database level?
