Douglas-Peucker Algorithm

This algorithm simplifies a line by recursively dividing a line and removing points outside of a predefined threshold. Check out the Wikipedia page to read up on it more.

Usage

>> require "douglas_peucker"
=> true
>> line = [[0, 0], [1, 1], [2, 1], [3, 2.5], [4, 4]]
=> [[0, 0], [1, 1], [2, 1], [3, 2.5], [4, 4]]
>> DouglasPeucker::LineSimplifier.new(line).threshold(1).points
=> [[0, 0], [4, 4]]
>> DouglasPeucker::LineSimplifier.new(line).threshold(0.5).points
=> [[0, 0], [2, 1], [4, 4]]
>> DouglasPeucker::LineSimplifier.new(line).points
=> [[0, 0], [1, 1], [2, 1], [4, 4]]
