Modification and Simplification

  • Alastair Aitchison


In this Chapter, we’ll examine the methods that can be used to create new geometries by modifying existing instances of geography or geometry data. Such modifications include enlarging or shrinking a geometry (STBuffer()), inverting it (ReorientObject()), straightening its curved edges (STCurveToLine()), or simplifying it (Reduce()).
