Simplify graphs

Street graphs often contain a lot of contiguous short straight streets, which can be simplified to longer curved streets with the Simplify Graph tool. It can by done by clicking the main Graph > Simplify Graph in the main menu. It operates either on the current street selection or on all streets when nothing is selected.

Street with unnecessary nodes (top); simplified version (bottom).
A street with unnecessary nodes (top) is shown, along with a simplified version (bottom).


Threshold Angle—Angle in degrees. Streets with a higher angle than this form boundaries between fitted curves.

(top) Input street (middle) Threshold = 10 (bottom) Threshold = 50
(top) Input street (middle) Threshold = 10 (bottom) Threshold = 50
