The input line features that will be simplified.
Output Feature Class
The simplified output line feature class. It will contain all the fields from the input feature class. The output line feature class is topologically correct. The tool does not introduce topology errors, but topological errors in the input data will be flagged in the output line feature class. The output feature class will include the InLine_FID and SimLnFlag fields to contain the input feature IDs and the input topological errors, respectively. A SimLnFlag value of 1 indicates that an input topological error is present; a value of 0 (zero) indicates that no input error is present.
Specifies the line simplification algorithm that will be used.
The degree of simplification that will be used. You can choose a preferred unit; otherwise, the units of the input will be used. The MinSimpTol and MaxSimpTol fields will be added to the output to store the tolerance that was used when processing occurred.
Resolve topological errors
This is a legacy parameter that is no longer used. It was formerly used to indicate how topological errors, possibly introduced during processing, were resolved. This parameter is still included in the tool's syntax for compatibility in scripts and models but is hidden from the Geoprocessing pane.
Keep collapsed points
Specifies whether an output point feature class will be created to store the endpoints of lines that are smaller than the spatial tolerance. The point output is derived; it will use the same name and location as the Output Feature Class parameter value but with a _Pnt suffix.
Check for topological errors
This is a legacy parameter that is no longer used. It was formerly used to indicate how topological errors, possibly introduced during processing, were handled. This parameter is still included in the tool's syntax for compatibility in scripts and models but is hidden from the Geoprocessing pane.
Input Barrier Layers
Inputs containing features to act as barriers for simplification. Resulting simplified lines will not touch or cross barrier features. For example, when simplifying contour lines, spot height features input as barriers ensure that the simplified contour lines will not simplify across these points. The output will not violate the elevation as described by measured spot heights.
Handling Topological Errors
Specifies how topological errors will be handled. Topological errors may be introduced in the simplification process and can include lines crossing or overlapping lines.
|Lines Collapsed To Zero Length|
When the Keep collapsed points parameter is checked, an output point feature class is created to store the endpoints of lines that are smaller than the spatial tolerance of the data.
