simplify.outline: Simplify an outline object by removing short edges

Description Usage Arguments Value Author(s)

View source: R/Outline.R

Description

Simplify an outline object by removing vertices bordering short edges while not encroaching on any of the outline. At present, this is done by finding concave vertices. It is safe to remove these, at the expense of increasing the area a bit.

Usage

1
simplify.outline(o, min.frac.length = 0.001, plot = FALSE)

Arguments

o

outline object to simplify

min.frac.length

the minimum length as a fraction of the total length of the outline.

plot

whether to display plotting or not during simplification

Value

Simplified outline object
