Input Point Features | The input point feature layer to be dispersed. | Layer |

Minimum Spacing | The minimum separation distance between individual point symbols in page units. A distance must be specified and must be greater than or equal to zero. When a positive value is specified, markers will be separated by that value; when a value of zero is specified, point symbols will touch. The default page unit is Points. | Linear Unit |

Dispersal Pattern (Optional) | Specifies the pattern that will be used to place the dispersed point symbols. A group of point symbols will have a center of mass derived from the locations of all points in the group. The center of mass is used as the anchor point around which the dispersal pattern operates. - Expanded—The general pattern of the point symbols will be maintained as they are spread apart. Points that were exactly coincident will be dispersed to a circle around their center of mass. This is the default.
- Random—Point symbols will be placed around the center of mass in a random dispersal that respects the minimum spacing.
- Squares—Point symbols will be placed in multiple square rings around the center of mass, ensuring that all points are placed as closely together as allowable by the minimum spacing parameter.
- Rings—Point symbols will be placed in multiple circular rings around the center of mass, ensuring that all points are placed as closely together as allowable by the minimum spacing parameter.
- Square—Point symbols will be placed evenly around the center of mass in a single square pattern.
- Ring—Point symbols will be placed evenly around the center of mass in a single circular pattern.
- Cross—Point symbols will be spaced evenly on horizontal and vertical axes originating from the center of mass.
- X-cross—Point symbols will be spaced evenly on 45° axes originating from the center of mass.
- Column—Point symbols will be spaced evenly on a vertical axis originating from the center of mass.
- Row—Point symbols will be spaced evenly on a horizontal axis originating from the center of mass.
