# simplifyGeom geometries

`simplify.Rd`

Reduce the number of nodes used to represent geometries.

## Usage

```
# S4 method for class 'SpatVector'
simplifyGeom(x, tolerance=0.1, preserveTopology=TRUE, makeValid=TRUE)
```

## Arguments

- x
SpatVector of lines or polygons

- tolerance
numeric. The minimum distance between nodes in units of the crs (i.e. degrees for long/lat)

- preserveTopology
logical. If

`TRUE`

the topology of output geometries is preserved- makeValid
logical. If

`TRUE`

,`makeValid`

is run after simplification to assure that the output polygons are valid
