Hello everyone,


I am trying to create a map about the ongoing conflict in Syria. I would like to show on my map the occupied territories, the "number of deaths", and the refugee camps (+ refugee number). 

The problem, as you can probably see on the picture below, is that points are scattered throughout Syria and it is hard to tell how many victims are aggregated into each points (as you can see on image #2, each point can represent from one to X number of victims).


I tried tools such as "integrate" and "collect events" which are nice but give something that is too aggregated (see image #3). 


My question would be: do you have any advice on how to proceed? Is there a better way of "aggregating" the data?


And I know the colors are ugly. I haven't thought about that yet. I am trying to figure out how to aggregate correctly this data first.


Thank you,
