This question already has an answer here:

I am simplifying administrative boundaries using a high simplify tolerance (which is my intention so as to get a minimalist appearance). However, after simplification, the borders of the regions no longer fit together. What would be the most effective way to solve this problem?

  • Thanks @Fezter this is a very helpful site and the code is downloadable (.cs) . However, how would one run this C# code on a shapefile or geojson? Am not sure what the input would be. Is it possible to run in the terminal? I am running MAC OS... any feedback would be appreciated – iskandarblue Oct 7 '16 at 21:18
  • Sorry, I'm not really sure. I suggest asking the developer. – Fezter Oct 7 '16 at 21:49
