View source: R/simplify_polygon.R

Useful for simplifying area of interest (AOI) polygons for use with online data portals (like USGS EarthExplorer) that limit the number of vertices allowed in uploaded AOI shapefiles.

1 2 | ```
simplify_polygon(poly_obj, max_vertices, maxit = 100, multiplier = 1.05,
initial_tolerance = "dynamic")
``` |

`poly_obj` |
a polygon as an sp object |

`max_vertices` |
the maximum number of vertices to allow in the simplified polygon |

`maxit` |
the maximum number of iterations to use to simplify the polygon |

`multiplier` |
a number used to increase the tolerance for each subsequent iteration, if the number of vertices in the simplified polygon is not less than /codemax_vertices |

`initial_tolerance` |
initial value for tolerance used to remove vertices
from polygon. If set to the default option, "dynamic", the code will
automatically set the |

polygon with less than `max_vertices`

vertices
