Hey I am new to GH and was wondering if there is any way of using a surface or mesh as a way to map the changing densities of the points shown in the photo below. The map is to show the density of pipes in a city but I cannot figure out a way to create a script that will accomplish this.
I would even settle for just changing the colour of the points in a gradient colour scheme to create a sense of fluctuating densities in certain areas
Here you go!
As I say I am a beginner on GH so the script might be completely wrong

Dont have merkat. Can you just internalize the final points?
How do I internalise the final points? hahah sorry I’m so new to this
No problem. Right click on the “point container”, there’s an option: Internalize Data.
What about just using point groups.ptGroups.gh
Actually I think Proxy is more what you are after.ptProxy.gh
3 fast approaches.
Dunno how you want it to look.
First one is just displaying the Points. The other two are meshes.

Edit: Cloud Display repaired.
Hey sorry i have been asleep!
Here is the file with the internalized points! i didnt want to bother you with this so i tried to use your files however they havent seemed to have worked when i plug in the points!

Flatten your points. Same for my script.
(higher res -> less fuzzy -> longer calc)
Thanks so much, this is exactly what i want! is there anyway to bake or export this as a line file or export file in which keeps the colours and points?
So i can put into illustrator or CAD
Hello, I’ve been using this script it’s amazing thank you!
I was just wondering whether someone could explain why you duplicate data after the gradient component? Just looking to understand more about what I’m doing?
Because it makes a color per face. A face has 4 corners and the color is calculated for one center per face. Grasshopper component need colors per vertex and not per face.
