Models of this concept are passed to the polyline simplification algorithm to calculate the cost of removing a vertex. Such a cost represents some measure of the deviation error between the polyline sets before and after removal. The smaller the error the lower the cost. The algorithm processes vertices in increasing cost order to preserve the overall polyline set shape as much as possible.

◆ operator()()
Given a vertex in constraint iterator viq
computes vip=std::prev(viq)
and vir=std::next(vir)
, and the cost of removing vertex *viq
, replacing edges (*vip,*viq)
and (*viq,*vir)
with edge (*vip,*vir)
.
 Parameters

ct  The underlying constrained Delaunay triangulation which embeds the polyline constraints 
viq  The vertex in constraint iterator of the vertex to remove 
 Returns
 The cost for removing
*viq
. The value boost::none
can be returned to indicate an infinite or uncomputable cost.
