> Hi Oscar. Thanks for your reply. This one above is the one that I am
trying to do. It is true that choosing arbitrary points evenly selected
from the original points is not ideal, it is good enough for my purposes in
most cases. When I have a bit more time I am going to try to implement the
Ramer–Douglas–Peucker algorithm to improve the accuracy of my curve
