EliminateSlivers.py cycles through all features in a polygon shapefile and removes the ones from the output shapefile that fall below a given area threshold.
Geoprocessing operations and cluster tolerances could result in the build up of extra, tiny sliver polygons. These may be meaningless and could distort the reliability of the spatial data.
Please feel free to email me if you encounter problems or have any ideas on how to make the tool even more flexible and functional.
