Does anyone have the proper codes for line simplification and smoothing algorithms which is good to implement instead of ArcGIS algorithms?

For example any of these:

  • Visvalingam–Whyatt
  • Reumann–Witkam
  • Opheim simplification
  • Lang simplification
  • Zhao-Saalfeld
  • 4

You can have a look at the following python versions of those algorithms:

Couldn't find an example for Zhao-Saalfeld (yet).

    So OP should just use github's search box. – alexGIS May 6 '16 at 14:25

    @alexGIS - That's what I did ;) – Joseph May 6 '16 at 14:28

    Yeah, github is amazing that way! I like how the search results are displayed too. – alexGIS May 6 '16 at 14:29
  • sure there are lots of codes like these but none of them is usable for arcpy implementation – maryam May 6 '16 at 17:36

    But @maryam you did ask to be able to use these "instead of ArcGIS algorithms". This is exactly how you go about doing that. – alphabetasoup May 7 '16 at 0:07
