Simplify Geo Shape processor

Anthony Pépin Updated by Anthony Pépin

The Simplify geoshape processor simplifies a geoshape to reduce both the processing time and the dataset size.

The process of simplification does not respect the topology of the geoshapes.

Setting the processor

To set the parameters of the Simplify geoshape processor, follow the indications from the table below.




Tolerance (simplification level)

Value below which intermediate points will be suppressed. Depending on the shape complexity, different tolerances can be tested: the idea could be starting with a tolerance value of 0.0001 and in order to simplify more, to use a power of ten e.g. 0.001, then 0.01. If the tolerance is too high, the shapes will be overly simplified and unrecognizable. Use the preview to find out which tolerance works best.
