In the simplification process, each component is handled separatively and a breakpoint is assimilated to a 2-dimensional point with coordinate (x, y). This is the case for all nim simplification functions that end with a _v.
It reduces successive vertices that are clustered too closely to a single vertex, called a key. The resulting keys form the simplified polyline. This process is illustrated below:
