The point or polygon feature layer for which hot spots will be calculated.
The name of the output layer to create on your portal.
A numeric field (number of incidents, crime rates, test scores, and so on) to be evaluated. The field you select might represent the following:
Divide By Field
The numeric field in the input layer that will be used to normalize your data. For example, if your points represent crimes, dividing by total population would result in an analysis of crimes per capita rather than raw crime counts.
When the analysis layer is points and no analysis field is specified, you can provide polygon features that define where incidents could have occurred. For example, if you are analyzing boating accidents in a harbor, the outline of the harbor might provide a good boundary for where accidents could occur. When no bounding areas are provided, only locations with at least one point will be included in the analysis.
When the input layer contains points and no analysis field is specified, you can provide polygon features into which the points will be aggregated and analyzed, such as administrative units. The number of points that fall within each polygon is counted and the point count in each polygon is analyzed.
The output hot spot layer.
