View source: R/simplify_shape.R

Simplify a shape consisting of polygons or lines. This can be useful for shapes that are too detailed for visualization, especially along natural borders such as coastlines and rivers. The number of coordinates is reduced.

simplify_shape(shp, fact = 0.1, keep.units = FALSE, keep.subunits = FALSE,
...)
``` |

`shp` |
a |

`fact` |
simplification factor, number between 0 and 1 (default is 0.1) |

`keep.units` |
d |

`keep.subunits` |
d |

`...` |
other arguments passed on to the underlying function |

This function is a wrapper of `ms_simplify`

. In addition, the data is preserved. Also `sf`

objects are supported.

shape in the same class as `shp`
