There seems to be a few theoretical options around at the moment for geometric simplification. Douglas–Peucker seems the most established, followed by Visvalingam's approach (used by d3.js). Now ...
When buffering some polygons I am trying to avoid the curved buffered area like this: I'm trying to do thins within an FME workbench but if someone knows how its done in other software that would ...
In Simplifying a shapefile for world timezones http://efele.net/maps/tz/world/ all generalize/simplify algorithms fail on 5 countries/states, shown in this shape file ...
I have 2 polygon layers, accordingly 1:10 000 and 1:500 000. I want to generalize the first layer from 1:10 000 to 1:500 000. I tried using Simplify polygon tool, and since these scales relate to ...
I'm looking for the best symbol to display clustered features in the ArcGIS Server JS API. I don't like the "fly-out" animated cluster symbol, as used in the Silverlight API clustering or the JS ...
I am looking for existing solutions (softwares, libraries, methods, etc.) to automate the generalisation/simplification of geographical data as presented there, and also there. How do you proceed ...
What are the recommended ways of simplifying geometries? Keeping in mind projections, and simplifying state geometries for example. I've heard about converting to an 'equi-distant' projection that ...
