Grouping points according to normals

Hi all, I am trying to group a bunch of specific points to emit particles from. My first idea was grouping it according to normals, but I do not know how to only group the bunch of points with similar normal directions together and not group the rest of the points. I also thought of grouping them by just dragging over the points and making a group out of it, but it isn't very procedural. I also tried grouping the points according to a boundingbox but as my geometry is moving over time, the boundingbox couldn't maintain the grouping of the points.Can anyone give me some ideas on how should I approach this problem? Thanks a lot.

Sorry guys my files are attached on odforce as I couldn't attached them here. Thanks.
