I have a dataset with around 900 points and I want to cluster them into groups of 44 based on proximity.

Is this possible in QGIS?

I have tried to use the convex hull tool with no success.

You can use ClusterPoint plugin. After installing the plugin, a tool named doCluster is added to Processing Toolbox.

Cluster Points adds a new field Cluster_IDto the attribute table as output. (In the image, points are styled categorically by Cluster_ID)

  • Originally, that was also my answer :). But as @Sapecedman rightly pointed out, OP wants to create clusters with 44 points (not 44 clusters), which seems to be more difficult task than to handle with this algorithm. – Oto Kaláb Oct 19 '18 at 8:23
  • Could you do the total number of points divided by the number of points wanted in a cluster? (900/44 = 20.45...) obviously you will end up with some discrepancy if not an integer. – AWGIS Dec 19 '18 at 13:13
