I have a point grid that overlaps points on a map. I want to join this grid to the points in order to keep only the parts of the grid that contain a point.
However, there are some points that lie between the circles of the point grid (in the empty space) and therefore aren't counted as overlapping and aren't included in the output.
The whole point of my grid though is that it should cover the entire area. I know I could get it to join with these points by making the grid a square grid (and eliminating the empty space) or by making the circles of the point grid so large that they fill most of the empty space. However, I want to keep the circles the same size.
Is there a way of joining the circles of the point grid to a point that is NEARBY rather than actually touching?
