title Data reduction of polygonal curves using B-splines
source Computer-Aided Design, Vol. 31 (8) (1999) pp. 507-515
summary We present a new method for data reduction of polygonal curves. Representation by means of a list of points does not provide fair curve models that may have complex andvarying shapes. We suggest a different technique based on fitting B-spline curves. This algorithm reaches high data reduction rates while producing fair approximations evenfor the most complex curves. We apply our technique to cartographic data but the method is suitable for any application where the number of data points must be greatlyreduced.
