comment How do I query for all polygons within a distance from a point?
code above is not the exact copy of my code, I've changed the specific model name to Area, likewise with centroid, both shouldn't be a problem as long as the imports are correct. It's not a naming conflict.

@Dano: no, sorry, I need to do this in GeoDjango.

Looks very promising, I'll experiment with it! Thanks! Could you explain what the UPDATE and SELECT lines do?

perfectly possible, I'm a completely newbie in all things GIS. I'll look into scripting QGIS, thanks.

In general, good advice, and if it all comes down to manual work I'll find someone who'll create those shapefiles for me with QGIS like you described. However, I'd like to be able to define those clusters (e.g. via NUTS codes: merge FR413 and FR411 into something called _FRX1) and then run a script which would generate those clustered shapefiles. I want to be able to correct errors or accomodate fast-tracked changes without the overhead of a GUI tool. It's perfectly possible that those clusters will be defined by end-users someday, so I need a bit of flexibility.
