IPolycurve.Weed Method

Generalizes using a small tolerance based upon either the system units of the geometry's spatial reference, or the geometry's bounding box.

Weed Generalizes each part of a Polycurve into a generalized collection of Line segments.  Weed performs a Douglas-Poiker Generalization algorithm with a specified multiple of the internal tolerance given as input.  For Line segments, the Generalized output is a subset of the original input vertices.  For non-Linear segments, the Generalized output contains points along all parts of the curve, not necessarily only the vertices.


For polycurve with non-linear segments, the output curve may contain more vertices than the input curve, but all output segments will be linear.

Weed(X) = Generalize(X * InternalTolerance)
