Answers to: JOSM: Simplify way - simplify-way.max-error parameter meaninghttps://help.openstreetmap.org/questions/10541/josm-simplify-way-simplify-waymax-error-parameter-meaning<p>What does exactly simplify-way.max-error parameter mean? I found in a discussion from 2009 it was supposed to be mean an error counted in meters (m). But the function seems to run pretty high even with a parameter smaller than 1. I used 0.25 and it seemed to me the error was still counted in several meters... cound not find a real clue here myself.</p>enSun, 12 Feb 2012 15:46:56 +0000Answer by bastikhttps://help.openstreetmap.org/questions/10541/josm-simplify-way-simplify-waymax-error-parameter-meaning/10562<p>It is the maximum deviation of old and new way in meters. I've extended the <a href="http://josm.openstreetmap.de/wiki/Help/Action/SimplifyWay">help page</a>, hope this answers your questions.</p>bastikSun, 12 Feb 2012 15:46:56 +0000https://help.openstreetmap.org/questions/10541/josm-simplify-way-simplify-waymax-error-parameter-meaning/10562
