An overview of the Analyze Patterns toolset

The Analyze Patterns toolset contains tools that help you identify, quantify, and visualize spatial patterns in your data.


Calculate Density

Creates a density map from point or line features by spreading known quantities of some phenomenon (represented as attributes of the points or lines) across the map. The result is a layer of areas classified from least dense to most dense.

Find Hot Spots

Identifies statistically significant spatial clustering of high values (hot spots) or low values (cold spots), or data counts, in your data. Use this tool to uncover hot and cold spots of high and low home values, crime densities, traffic accident fatalities, unemployment or biodiversity, for example.

Interpolate Points

Predicts values at new locations based on measurements from a collection of points. The tool uses point data with values at each point as input and makes areas classified by predicted values.
