What defines a Class in the Heat map plugin? As in: "Black holes like that are usually caused by raster values exceeding the range of the color ramp. Try adding another class with a higher associated value. That should fix it." This quote comes from an earlier anwered question: Why is there a black hole in the Heatmap?
I'm getting all sorts of clunky results and I'm not sure whether I need to find the right settings, alter my data, or both. I'm working on identifying all important parameters: obviously Radius, and cell size, their relation, extents (I'm foggy on), projection (I'm still not positive how it affects the heat map as long as it sit on top of the data. And it does.), projection units,...
I'd like to know better specifically what affects the curve of the histogram. Also is the color ramp synonymous with the histogram curve?
In addition to lots of other issues, I too have black holes. But I have to say it is awesome fun ferreting all this out. And Thank you, Underdark for pointing the way. I'm starting to find some light with the raster histogram.
