How can I Create a spatial binning similar to or directly using Uber H3 from QGIS UI? Are there plugins available to achieve the desired task?

    If you explain how Uber H3 does spatial binning, you're more likely to get a useful answer. Otherwise the only people who can answer would be those who know both Uber H3 and QGIS, which may be a very small number of people. – csk Feb 1 '19 at 17:36
  • It looks like eng.uber.com/h3 and mostly consists of hexagons. A solution in python would also be great. – Georg Heiler Feb 1 '19 at 18:42

You can play with it using my #30DayMapChallenge hexagon demo https://github.com/ThomasG77/30DayMapChallenge/blob/master/day4_hexagons/data/h3-processing.py

Except the fact I do no use an UI, I combine both QGIS and Uber H3 Python library.

I clearly do not use all parts of the H3 Python library. I suppose the example could help you getting started.


There's the official https://github.com/uber/h3-py

Python bindings for H3, a hierarchical hexagonal geospatial indexing system https://uber.github.io/h3/

but I haven't tried it myself.
