I want to calculate the density of a point layer with QGIS, but these points are dependent on one attribute. (I have different kind of points)

I do not only want the normal heatmap; I need the density of distinct points, because I want to discover hotspots of mixed points vs hotspots of homogeneous areas.

Do you know, if this is possible with normal QGIS?

I have not tried to apply GDAL/OGR in a Python script in order to achieve the objective.

  • Does anything oppose creating files only containing these distinct points? Also, like most other vector-tools density should work with selected features only. – Erik Apr 30 '19 at 12:30
  • Yes, because I want to know the number of different points in range; NOT the total number of points in range. – Marcel Gangwisch Apr 30 '19 at 12:43

    Then I missunderstood your question. Could you rephrase it, maybe add an image of your data structure showing the different classes of points and what you want to know exactly? – Erik Apr 30 '19 at 12:45
