Working in QGIS 3.4.1 Madeira

I have a layer with many data points, for visual purposes I wish to remove some of the overlaying points.

Is there a simple way to perform some sort of clustering/filtering of point based on their relative distance to each other?

I found the Plugin calls "ClusterPoint" but cannot find where it is or how to use it.

  • After installing the plugin, you'll find an option in the Layer Styling Panel called "Point cluster."

You can do this with the "point cluster" symbology.


enter image description here

Rightclick on your point layer -> Properties... -> Symbology -> and chose "Point cluster"

Close points (you can define this parametre) will be replaced by a single symbol and the number of points replaced will be indicated.
