Compression is a generalization process to reduce the number of vertices produced in a polyline or polygon boundary. The value is a 'weighting' factor used internally. Higher values results in less vertices. The value range for this property is from 0.001 to 50.0.

The corresponding property IVectorizationBatchProperties::UseCompression must be set to true for this value to be used.
