I have a dataset of road lines obtained from digitized aerial imagery and I want to automate the generalization procedures using arcGIS model builder. I am using the ArcGIS 10.3 desktop suite. I have come across the generalization toolset in ArcGIS. But I'm not sure as I may not have understood the theory in generalizing roads.
What procedures can I use in a workflow?
And especially, since I'm generalizing from my source data at 1 in 2500, to an output of 1 in 20k how can i calculate the parameters to use for a 20k map generalization module?
