Simplify the input geometry in base to the value of the indicated threshold. This function is useful when a geometry with less resolution than the original geometry is required. This function uses the algorithm of Douglas-Peucker.

This function can change the topology of the geometry and may result in invalid geometry.

In Postgres, the attribute pg_preserve='y' serves to ensure that the topologie is preserved.
