I would like to simplify a polygon shapefile where the resulting output has a minimum distance of 5 kilometres between the new vertices.
We have ArcMap 10 on an ArcView license, FME and QGIS.
I have tried the generaliser transformer in FME using NURBfit smoothing and set the segment length to 5km but it still created vertices within that distance.
The image attached below shows what an order can can look like. So there can't be a vertex within 5km of another vertex.
We would like to be able to generalise multiple shapefiles so there are no vertices within 5km of each other, and without using a bounding box as that would include areas where we don't want.
