The building polygons to be simplified.
Output Feature Class
The output feature class to be created.
The tolerance for building simplification. A tolerance must be specified, and it must be greater than zero. You can choose a preferred unit; the default is the feature unit.
The minimum area for a simplified building to be retained in feature units. The default value is zero, that is, to keep all buildings. You can specify a preferred unit; the default is the feature unit.
Check for spatial conflicts
Specifies whether spatial conflicts—that is, overlapping or touching among buildings—will be identified. A SimBldFlag field is added to the output to store conflict flags. A value of 0 means no conflict; a value of 1 means conflict.
Input barrier layers
The input layers containing features to act as barriers for simplification. Resulting simplified buildings will not touch or cross barrier features. For example, when simplifying buildings, the resulting simplified building areas do not cross road features defined as barriers.
Keep collapsed points
Specifies whether an output point feature class will be created to store the centers of any buildings that are removed because they are smaller than the Minimum Area parameter value. The point output is derived, is named the same as the output feature class specified in the Output Feature Class parameter but with a _Pnt suffix, and is located in the same folder.
|Polygons Collapsed To Zero Area|
The output point feature class that will store points that represent buildings that are removed because they are smaller than the Minimum Area parameter value (minimum_area in Python). This parameter is only used when the Keep collapsed points parameter is checked (collapsed_point_option = "KEEP_COLLAPSED_POINTS" in Python).
