Spatial Analyst for ArcGIS Desktop adds a comprehensive set of advanced spatial modeling and analysis tools to the ArcGIS Desktop. Using Spatial Analyst for ArcGIS Desktop, you can derive new information from your existing data, analyze spatial relationships, and build spatial models integrating core ArcGIS Desktop and Spatial Analyst for ArcGIS Desktop tools.
With Spatial Analyst for ArcGIS Desktop you can:
- Find suitable locations.
- Find the best path between locations.
- Perform integrated raster/vector analysis.
- Perform distance and cost-of-travel analyses.
- Perform statistical analysis based on the local environment, small neighborhoods, or predetermined zones.
- Generate new data using simple image processing tools.
- Interpolate data values for a study area based on samples.
- Clean up a variety of data for further analysis or display.
Because Spatial Analyst for ArcGIS Desktop is so strongly integrated with the ArcGIS Desktop geoprocessing environment, it is easier than ever to solve complicated analysis problems. Geoprocessing analysis models are not only easy to create and implement, but they are also self documenting, so anyone can quickly understand your spatial analysis process. Thousands of ArcGIS users are leveraging this modeling environment to take full advantage of their data and make better decisions.
Spatial Analyst for ArcGIS Desktop Provides an Easy Way to Perform Advanced GIS Analysis
ArcGIS Spatial Analyst provides a broad range of powerful modeling and analysis features that allow you to quickly derive the information you need from your GIS data. You can perform this analysis in a variety of ways.
Complex analysis tasks can be simplified within simple algebra-like expressions (map algebra). Many people have worked with map algebra for years and will be able to be productive very quickly with this interface.
The second way to perform analysis is through the geoprocessing tools of ArcGIS Desktop. The geoprocessing environment allows you to use models (ModelBuilder), scripts, dialog boxes (ArcToolbox), and a command line to perform your analysis.
In the geoprocessing environment, you can use the more than 150 Spatial Analyst for ArcGIS Desktop tools in the exact same environment that you use the rest of the ArcGIS Desktop tools. This allows you to build the appropriate model for your application without having to change environments between processes.
Spatial Analyst for ArcGIS Desktop is also a comprehensive tool set for GIS analysis. You can use it to perform integrated raster/vector analysis and derive information about your data, identify spatial relationships, find suitable locations, and calculate the accumulated cost of traveling from one point to another.
Using Spatial Analyst for ArcGIS Desktop you can interpolate data values for a study area based on a collection of samples; clean up data to prepare it for further analysis or display; and calculate spatial statistics based on the local environment, small neighborhoods, or predetermined zones. All of these analysis operations will allow you to learn more about your data and help you make better informed decisions.
Why Use Spatial Analyst for ArcGIS Desktop?
With Spatial Analyst for ArcGIS Desktop you can:
- Derive information. Use Spatial Analyst for ArcGIS Desktop to create useful information from your existing data. Create a hillshade to provide a realistic backdrop of the terrain or calculate slope to identify steep slopes. Identify the distance or direction to each road or calculate the population density of a region.
- Identify spatial relationships. Explore relationships between data sets, for example, to find out if there is a relationship between outbreaks of leukemia and distance to nuclear power plants or if aspect determination is important for the survival of a plant species.
- Find suitable locations. Suitable locations can be found by querying your data or by creating a suitability map. Query data sets to find locations higher than 3,000 feet in elevation and within five miles of a town, or create a suitability map by combining data sets to examine the suitability of every identified location.
- Calculate cost of travel. Calculate the accumulated cost of traveling across the landscape, then find the least cost path from point A to point B.
Who Uses Spatial Analyst for ArcGIS Desktop?
Any organization or individual who needs to conduct spatial analysis for real-world problems will benefit from Spatial Analyst for ArcGIS Desktop. A contractor can use Spatial Analyst for ArcGIS Desktop to identify areas suitable for new development. A hydrologist can use hydrologic modeling to analyze temporal changes in sedimentary processes in a given terrain. Spatial Analyst for ArcGIS Desktop gives you the power to attain tangible answers for complicated real-world spatial problems.
