At the moment it does nothing, but I'm not sure, if it SHOULD do 
something at this level, as there may be well some points to delete.

I have thought of some ways to merge the rounding filter and the dp 
filter for this reason. Mabe the dp filter should take into account the 
distance to  rounded coordinates, not the real one. Or maybe it would be 
better to insert the rounding filter AFTER the dp filter. It may be 
possible to achive a little improvement, but I doubt it.
The main reason is the limitation of resolution to 2m.
