A C++ implementation of Douglas-Peucker Line Approximation Algorithm

, 3 Mar 2003
DP Line approximation algorithm is a well-known method to approximate 2D lines. It is quite fast, O(nlog_2(n)) for a n-points line and can drastically compress a data curve. Here, a fully OOP implementation is given.
