Simplify a geometry using a specified strategy.

template<typename Geometry, typename GeometryOut, typename Distance, typename Strategy> void simplify(Geometry const & geometry, GeometryOut & out, Distance const & max_distance, Strategy const & strategy)

Type |
Concept |
Name |
Description |
---|---|---|---|

Geometry const & |
Any type fulfilling a Geometry Concept |
geometry |
input geometry, to be simplified |

GeometryOut & |
The output geometry |
out |
output geometry, simplified version of the input geometry |

Distance const & |
A numerical distance measure |
max_distance |
distance (in units of input coordinates) of a vertex to other segments to be removed |

Strategy const & |
A type fulfilling a SimplifyStrategy concept |
strategy |
simplify strategy to be used for simplification |
