Simplify geometry using the Ramer–Douglas–Peucker algorithm.
If you need to simplify geometries, for instance reducing the number of points in a polygon, this will help you. You could use this in Leaflet.
var simplify = require('simplify-geometry'); var linestring = [[0,0], [2.5,3], [5,0]]; console.log(simplify(linestring, 2.9)); console.log(simplify(linestring, 3));
[ [ 0, 0 ], [ 2.5, 3 ], [ 5, 0 ] ] [ [ 0, 0 ], [ 5, 0 ] ]
You can see an example here, which uses Leaflet: http://seabre.github.io/simplify-geometry/
