I am interesting in learning how to bin point data into hexagons. I have selected homicides in Chicago for the year 2013. I have added the XY data using ArcGIS, so I have a point shapefile containing 416 homicides. In doing this project, I have come across several questions I am not sure about. 1) How do I determine the correct size of the hexagon (the map units are in feet)? 2) How do I know if I have a sufficient number of points to use hexagon?
I am using the following application to create the hexagons.
Thanks in advance.
