Once a knowledge graph has been added to a map, any entities with associated spatial features can be analyzed from a geographic perspective using geoprocessing operations. For example, you can use the Pairwise Buffer geoprocessing tool to determine a spatial area around an entity of interest in which you want to look for other entities.
- Add a knowledge graph to a map.
A knowledge graph layer is added to a map. Entities with associated spatial features appear on the map.
- On the Analysis tab on the ribbon, in the Geoprocessing group, click Tools .
The Geoprocessing pane appears.
- On the Favorites tab, click the Pairwise Buffer tool .
- Click the drop-down list for the Input Features parameter.
The knowledge graph feature layers in the map are available in the drop-down list.
- Click the entity type whose features you want to analyze with the geoprocessing tool.
- Click in the Distance parameter and provide a suitable value, such as 2. Click the drop-down list for the units of measure and click a suitable measure of distance, such as Kilometers.
- Click Run .
A feature class containing polygons that represent a 2-kilometer area around the entity's spatial features is created in the project's default geodatabase. The resulting feature class is added to the map.
