Dear all,
I have a list of data points in two dimensions that correspond to the coordinates (longitude and latitude) of my vessels. Then there is also a third variable, connected to each vessel position, that corresponds to time.
Now I want to define an imaginary grid and plot those vessels into a plot, but instead of plotting all points/vessels I just want identify the cells that have vessels and consider one equivalent vessel in those grid cells during a specific period of time (let’s say one hour).
I'm a bit lost on this. Thank you in advance for your help.

Dear Voss thank you for your help in this issue.
In fact the data I've attached before was just a short part of my dataset and thats why the plot is so "empty" (the entire dataset has +/- 50000 lines)
Well, regarding your question. I want to create a rectangular grid in order to identify how many vessels will "fall inside" each cell. When I have the information about how many vessels exists in each cell I want to condensate those that have similar time.
Hope this help to turn my problem a bit more clear.
Thank you.
