Join us for a free webinar on Monday, November 21st. In this webinar we’ll cover the use of the Hot Spot Analysis tool in ArcGIS.
The Hot Spot Analysis tool in ArcGIS examines features and their attributes to identify statistically significant hot spots and cold spots using the Getis-Ord Gi* stats. It provides a visual clustering of high, low and not significant values. Each feature is assigned as a hot spot, cold spot, or not significant. To perform the analysis, a neighborhood is defined for each feature. How a neighborhood is defined is critical to the output of the tool as it is the neighborhood that is examined in relation to the study area for assignment of each feature.
