Points displacement


Moves overlapped points at small distance, that they all become visible. The result is very similar to the output of the “Point displacement” renderer but it is permanent.


Input layer [vector: point]
Layer with overlapped points.
Displacement distance [number]

Desired displacement distance NOTE: displacement distance should be in same units as layer.

Default: 0.00015

Horizontal distribution for two point case [boolean]

Controls distrobution direction in case of two overlapped points. If True points wwill be distributed horizontally, otherwise they will be distributed vertically.

Default: True


Output layer [vector]
The resulting layer with shifted overlapped points.

Console usage

processing.runalg('qgis:pointsdisplacement', input_layer, distance, horizontal, output_layer)
