I have imported a layer which contains a lot of lines. They overlap each other in a cross kind of pattern. When zoomed out it can look like this:
When zooming in on one of the broader lines it looks like below, where the thicker black line indicates my wanted output?
Is there a way of identifying what lines that overlap each other and merge them to one line that stretches across where they are? It is also OK with a straight line if the curved is not doable:
The background is that the lines comes from a tool called Kartapullautin and are representing cliffs from LIDAR data. I want them to be merged so I can easily add it to a map and not have thousands of small cliffs on top of each other, but rather have a few simplified one. Both from readability purpose, but also because the large amount of cliffs are growing my map project in file size so it is difficult to work with. It is worth to mention, I am QGIS newbie!
