It would be neat if qgis could do an on-the-fly postgis simplify of geometries based on map scale and user preferences. This would have the potential to significantly speed up drawing of postgis geometries.

Qgis has now a neat "simplify feature" edit tool, that works also on postgis layers. This answer to your old request?

#2 Updated by Giovanni Manghi almost 15 years ago

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from Open to Closed

There is also the "simplify features" tool in ftools, so I guess that the request was fullfilled. Closing.

This is not exactly what g_j_m was looking for IMHO. On-the-fly simplification can be obtained trough a view, with the PostGIS Manager: would this be enough?
