MapShaper.org is a Macromedia Flash-based WYSIWYG map generalization Web service for real-time generalizing and editing of vector map data. Requiring only a Web browser with the Flash plug-in, it offers line and shape simplification and smoothing. Users can upload map files, perform generalization operations, and export and download their work.
