Input point or polyline features
The input features (point or line) for which to calculate the density.
The field denoting population values for each feature. The population field is the count or quantity to be spread across the landscape to create a continuous surface.
Values in the population field can be integer or floating point.
The options and default behaviors for the field are listed below.
Output cell size
The cell size of the output raster that will be created.
This parameter can be defined by a numeric value or obtained from an existing raster dataset. If the cell size hasn't been explicitly specified as the parameter value, the environment cell size value will be used if specified; otherwise, additional rules will be used to calculate it from the other inputs. See the usage section for more detail.
|Analysis Cell Size|
The search radius within which to calculate density. Units are based on the linear unit of the projection of the output spatial reference.
For example, if the units are meters—to include all features within a one-mile neighborhood—set the search radius equal to 1609.344 (1 mile = 1609.344 meters).
The default search radius is computed specifically for the input dataset using a spatial variant of Silverman's Rule of Thumb (Silverman, 1986) that is robust enough for spatial outliers (points that are far away from the rest of the points). See the usage tips for a description of the algorithm.
The area units of the output density values.
Output cell values
Specifies what the values in the output raster represent.
Specifies whether the flat earth (planar) or the shortest path on a spheroid (geodesic) method will be used.
Input barrier features
The dataset that defines the barriers.
The barriers can be a feature layer of polyline or polygon features.

The output kernel density raster.
It is always a floating point raster.
