I am building a customer database in QGIS. I get GPS coordinates for customers from my staff. Then I convert those GPS coordinates into shapefile points in QGIS. I get a lot of duplicate points. I am sure that those are customers that are close together, e.g. house No.54, house No.55, House No.56.

enter image description here

How do I separate these duplicate points using QGIS?

    What do you mean by limit in the buffer zone? Also in which format you have the data? is it a shapefile, a spatial table or what?

  • What do you mean "separate" those points? did you mean cluster closer points into one?

  • @eth4io Many points are in the same place (duplicate), I want to separate them.

  • Okay I think I got what you mean, so you want to assign those points a random coordinate around their original location and with no overlapping?
