Polyline simplification is a technique that reduces the numb er of vertices of a polygonal chain for the purpose of map generalizat ion and for speeding up processing and visualization in GIS. Unfortunately, the majority of simplification algorithms does not preserve the topological co nsistency of the map, namely the spatial placement of a polyline with respect to it self and to its neighbouring features. To overcome this problem, some approache s based on the consistency of a point feature… CONTINUE READING
