I am attempting to understand if (and how) I might persuade QGIS to perform a union operation on the drawing of the marker symbols (not the geometry itself) based on a series of points. It's easy to set up SVG markers, but let's say that what I see after doing so is this:
What I'd like to see, however, is this:
I know this is easily accomplished if the green circles were actual polygon geometries, but what I'm wanting united (unioned?) are the SVG marker symbols as drawn on the screen/printed - not the point data.
If this is possible, then how?
