I digitized tracks to the scale 1/4000 and I want to get out a map at 1/50000. I need a tool in ArcGIS or QGIS with its parameters that will help me to generalize the tracks to the scale 1/50000


Try vector - geometry tools - simplify geometries. If google translated your question correctly.

  • What I should put in "Tolerance " – user130094 Oct 17 '18 at 9:57
  • Something that gives your desired output. Logically something in the magnitude of 12.5, since 1/4000 is 12.5 times more detailled than 1/50000. Depends on the number of nodes you digitized. – Erik Oct 17 '18 at 11:18
  • I just tried and the result was not satisfactory. I ended up with the same number of tracks on the way out. So my output card is still saturated by the large number of track – user130094 Oct 17 '18 at 15:50
  • I have 15000 tracks – user130094 Oct 17 '18 at 15:55
  • So you want a heat map. You could classify the tracks according to importance and/or traffic amount and only display the important ones. – Erik Oct 17 '18 at 19:23
