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

    GIS SE uses a "Focused question, best answer" model. In that context, this is five different questions, each of which subject to initial research before asking. Please take the Tour to better understand how this site operates. – Vince May 6 '16 at 10:56

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. – Richard Law May 7 '16 at 0:07
