comment What is the minimum buffer zone to get a certain amount of points within the zone?
@dimitris: For that, you could first join all the lines and then run the "near" tool with that.

comment Can I “undo” buffering of a point layer in QGIS?
So save the selected points to a new point layer, and only display that in your map.

comment Can I “undo” buffering of a point layer in QGIS?
Buffering a point layer will create a new polygon layer that contains the buffers. So for creating the map, you can simply hide the buffer polygon layer (or make it semi-transparent)

comment TIFF/Raster to Point shapefile question
@BenThompson: So you have some kind of independent point measurements (presumably as a point vector layer), and for each of those independent measurements, you want to identify the associated luminosity?

comment TIFF/Raster to Point shapefile question
Could you explain why you need such an attribute table? For most analyses on this type of data, it's best to stick with the raster format.

comment Problem changing CRS to enable clip function
@gene: As KMT says, on-the-fly is merely for display purposes, the analysis tools use the projection of the data. Of course, if both your layers are in the same projection and you display them in a different projection using on-the-fly projection, the analysis results will look the same. However, if the layers use different projections, clipping won't work even if you display them together using on-the-fly projection.

comment Problem changing CRS to enable clip function
Yes, that's the procedure that should work. If you save the point layer as NAD83-UTM10 using that method and then open the saved layer, do the points appear in a different location?

comment Problem changing CRS to enable clip function
You need to save the layers using the same coordinate system. Just setting the CRS in the layer properties is not enough: you're just telling QGIS how to interpret the coordinates of the layer, you're not actually reprojecting them.

comment How to convert lines to start points and end points?
So you want the points layer to have a new column indicating for each point whether it is the start or end point of the line it was created from?
