IPolycurve3D.Weed3D Method

Generalizes using a small tolerance based upon either the system units of the geometry's spatial reference, or the geometry's bounding box.

[Visual Basic .NET]
Public Sub Weed3D ( _
    ByVal maxAllowableOffsetFactor As Double _
public void Weed3D (
    double maxAllowableOffsetFactor
  double maxAllowableOffsetFactor

maxAllowableOffsetFactor is a parameter of type double

Product Availability

Available with ArcGIS Engine, ArcGIS Desktop, and ArcGIS Server.


Weed generalizes each part of a Polycurve into a generalized collection of z aware Line segments.  Weed performs a Douglas-Poiker Generalization algorithm, extended to operate in 3D space, with a specified multiple of the internal tolerance given as input.  For Line segments, the Generalized output is a subset of the original input vertices.  For non-Linear segments, the Generalized output contains points along all parts of the curve, not necessarily only the vertices.



        public static void Weed3D()


               const double WeedMaxAllowableOffset = 64129865400; 


               IGeometry polylineGeometry = GetPolylineGeometry();

               IPolycurve3D polycurve3D = polylineGeometry as IPolycurve3D;


               ITopologicalOperator topologicalOperator = polylineGeometry as ITopologicalOperator;
