Trying to generalize some 3D lines, but it does not seem to obey the distance tolerance in the Z space. Documentation doesn't seem to say anything either way. Would like to confirm if the generalizer even supports 3D? If not, any recommendations on simplifying a 3D line?

Actually trying to do this in FME, but it was simplifying the same way... so using an ArcGIS GP was going to be the backup plan until it appears to not obey Z values either. Running 10.4 at the moment.

Thanks a lot!

I will say no... generalization in 2D has some application such as data simplification based on proximity or duplicates.

I think to generalize in the Z axis would be a bit more complicated since one would presumably have to perform the generalization in the xy directions first.

Now will there be a counter-point???
