An overview of the Summarize Data toolset

The Summarize Data toolset contains tools that calculate total counts, lengths, areas, and basic descriptive statistics of features and their attributes within areas or near other features.


These tools are available when you have an active ArcGIS Enterprise portal that has a hosting server configured for Feature Analysis - Standard Tools. To access and run the tools, you must have spatial analysis privileges. The tools will not work if your active portal is ArcGIS Online.

These tools can be accessed from either the Analysis ribbon or the Geoprocessing pane's Portal tab.

Aggregate Points

Uses a layer of point features and a layer of polygon features to determine which points fall within each polygon's area. After determining this point-in-polygon spatial relationship, statistics about all points in the polygon are calculated and assigned to the area.

Summarize Nearby

Finds features that are within a specified distance of features in the input layer.

Summarize Within

Finds the point, line, or polygon features (or portions of these features) that are within the boundaries of polygons in another layer.
