I am trying to understand the exact method used in the "simplify" command under the "Convert Raster to Polygons" in ArcGIS.
The help page describes qualitatively what the command does, but does not describe the method in detail. I have looked at other help pages on "simplify" polygons and come across a number of methods that can be used when simplifying polygon shapes, but it is unclear which of these methods are used in the exact Raster to Polygon command.
One that I found helpful was http://desktop.arcgis.com/en/arcmap/10.3/manage-data/editing-existing-features/about-simplifying-and-smoothing-a-feature.htm, which suggested to me that perhaps the "simplify" command in Raster to Polygon uses the "Generalize" that uses the published algorithm (Douglas and Peucker, 1973).
Is this correct?
