The Generalization toolset contains tools that generalize data for different geometry types.
Eliminates a polygon by merging it with the polygon from the surrounding features that it shares the longest boundary with.
Exports data generalized by the ArcGIS Production Mapping theme-based generalization models into a production schema using generalization rules defined in a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet.
Fills gaps between polygon features that participate in a topology where the coincident boundaries are evident.
Splits a polygon based on its width and classifies each portion as narrow or wide based on its width and length.
Imports data from a production schema to a themed generalization database using generalization rules defined in a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet.
Creates centerlines from polygon features. This tool is useful for creating centerlines from hydrographic polygons for use at smaller scales.
Removes lines that are shorter than a specified minimum length and do not connect to other features on one end.
Sets the direction of line segments to match the slope direction of underlying elevation features. The direction of a line is used by some of the generalization and cartography tools.
Generates a simplified hydrographic line network for display at a smaller scale. The resulting hydrographic network maintains the main arteries while thinning less significant features based on hierarchy, length, and spacing between features.
