I have a point shape representing a river system. It is points, not a line, because of the mathematical calculations I had to do beforehand. In close it looks like this (the actual river is there as a line shape too).
Now, I need to visualize the different values of the points. I made several categories with colors green to red. But as the next picture shows, the points are overlapping and making it very difficult to see anything if zoomed to full extent. I tried different sizes and different symbols. Nothing really works.
Any ideas what I could do? Joining it to the line would be ideal, but I dont know how, since its one big riverline and the point-values are not projected correctly to the respective part of the river.
