Using QGIS 3.8.2, I rasterize a Geopackage vector point layer using the Raster > Conversion > Rasterize tool, with output to a .tif file.
However, where multiple input points are within a single output cell, the tool will only output the value of one point. I need the average of all points within each cell.
Rasterizing point layer with multiple features falling inside raster cell using GDAL? describes how to sum multiple input points into one output raster cell. In this case, the solution was to incorporate the option MERGE_ALG=ADD. However, a review of the current gdal_rasterize documentation makes no mention of MERGE_ALG. Furthermore, that was done within the context of Python, which I know nothing about.
