I have a point layer with singular points set with high accuracy to the position of certain sites, each point representing one site. There are 8 different types of site. When representing these points on a smaller scale map, the image becomes confusing, however.
I am looking for a way of clustering points of the same type into bigger points for representation on small scale maps. Therefore the size of the new clusterpoints should correspond to the number of points cluster within them.
There should be a workaround using buffers and spatial joins, but I assume, that there is a more elegant sollution?
I am using QGIS 2.18 on a Windows 7 PC.
