• I can tell you why it happens, but I'm not sure you can easily solve it. From the docs for FindShortestTour, "For large datasets, FindShortestTour finds a tour whose length is at least close to the minimum." And "Use PerformanceGoal->"Quality" to find an optimal result." However, you've got way too many points to solve a TSP optimally on your data. Looking at the intersections you've got you might be able to unda a large number of them manually, though. – Martin Ender Dec 13 '16 at 14:12
