Hi,

Thank you all.
I need to merge lines that are in certain distances. Lines represent the
roads. The result looks like some dashed lines. if they are not merged.

Previously I tried geos lib's linemerger function. The result was not
satisfactory.

I looked at boost's append. It is for appending point to a line.

What am I looking for appending a line to another line if it is in certain
distance ( may be a threshold value).

I am going to look at bg::distance().

Do you have any other recommendations ?

regards
