No matter what your interests are or what field you work in, spatial data is always being considered whether you know it or not. Spatial data can exist in a variety of formats and contains more than just location specific information.
Spatial analysis allows you to solve complex location-oriented problems and better understand where and what is occurring in your world.
It goes beyond mere mapping to let you study the characteristics of places and the relationships between them. Spatial analysis lends new perspectives to your decision-making. Have you ever looked at a map of crime in your city and tried to figure out what areas have high crime rates?
Have you explored other types of information, such as school locations, parks, and demographics to try to determine the best location to buy a new home? Whenever we look at a map, we inherently start turning that map into information by analyzing its contents—finding patterns, assessing trends, or making decisions. Spatial analysis is the most intriguing and remarkable aspect of GIS. Using spatial analysis, you can combine information from many independent sources and derive new sets of information results by applying a sophisticated set of spatial operators.
This comprehensive collection of spatial analysis tools extends your ability to answer complex spatial questions. Statistical analysis can determine if the patterns that you see are significant. You can analyze various layers to calculate the suitability of a place for a particular activity. And by employing image analysis, you can detect change over time.
These tools and many others, which are part of ArcGIS, enable you to address critically important questions and decisions that are beyond the scope of simple visual analysis. Here are some of the foundational spatial analyses and examples of how they are applied in the real world. This 3D hot spot analysis of 20 years of storm cell data across the United States uses the vertical z-axis to represent time, so when tilted just right in a 3D viewer, it shows two decades of change in storm activity.
Using data complied by the National Drought Mitigation Center from numerous agencies, this map focuses on the widely varying degrees of drought in Texas from to This space—time trend analysis of Florida auto crash data factors in time of day and underlying road conditions to identify new hot spots. Statistical analyses can identify patterns in events that might otherwise seem random and unconnected, such as crimes in San Francisco. GIS analysis is used to explore how effectively the citizens of Atlanta are being served by public transit in this large urban community.
Anyone who commutes understands that the time of day matters as well. You can use this story map to explore levels of transit service for different time windows. Spatial analysis is used by people around the world to derive new information and make informed decisions.
The organizations that use spatial analysis in their work are wide-ranging—local and state governments, national agencies, businesses of all kinds, utility companies, colleges and universities, NGOs—the list goes on. Here are just a few examples. This temporal analysis of the evolution of the — Texas drought applies both raster and vector analysis methods.
The project succeeds because of the attention to the final information product: a story map. GeoPlanner for ArcGIS is a planning app used to evaluate opposing or competing land uses at local and regional scales. This screen capture shows a scenario where proposed protected areas light green are within areas of high projected population growth.
GeoDescriber analyzes landscape layers in the Living Atlas of the World to generate a short narrative of descriptive text to characterize the most important elements about a landscape. In many cases, just by making a map you are doing analysis. You have a question you want the map to help answer: Where has disease ravaged trees? Which communities are in the path of a wildfire? Where are areas of high crime? Effective visualization is valuable for communicating results and messages clearly in an engaging way.
A surface displayed in 3D space has value as a visual display backdrop for draping data and analyzing it. This perspective scene shows a restored watershed and river draped on a digital elevation model of the terrain. Solar radiation tools in ArcGIS enable you to map and analyze the potential for solar panels to generate electricity. Naperville, Illinois, shown here. Multispectral imagery can provide a new perspective on crop health and vigor. At the moment General Robert E.
Historians using personal accounts, maps of the battle, and a basic elevation layer were able to unlock the mystery of why Lee may have committed to battle facing such poor odds. Most data and measurements can be associated with locations and, therefore, can be placed on the map. Using spatial data, you know both what is present and where it is. The natural environment elevation, temperature, precipitation is often represented using raster grids, whereas the built environment roads, buildings and administrative data countries, census areas tends to be represented as vector data.
In GIS each dataset is managed as a layer and can be graphically combined using analytical operators called overlay analysis. By combining layers using operators and displays, GIS enables you to work with these layers to explore critically important questions and find answers to those questions. In addition to locational and attribute information, spatial data inherently contains geometric and topological properties.
Geometric properties include position and measurements, such as length, direction, area, and volume. Topological properties represent spatial relationships such as connectivity, inclusion, and adjacency.
Using these spatial properties, you can ask even more types of questions of your data to gain deeper insights. GIS analysis can be used to answer questions like: Where's the most suitable place for a housing development? A handful of seemingly unrelated factors—land cover, relative slope, distance to existing roads and streams, and soil composition—can each be modeled as layers, and then analyzed together using weighted overlay, a technique often credited to landscape architect Ian McHarg.
The true power of GIS lies in the ability to perform analysis. Spatial analysis is a process in which you model problems geographically, derive results by computer processing, and then explore and examine those results. This type of analysis has proven to be highly effective for evaluating the geographic suitability of certain locations for specific purposes, estimating and predicting outcomes, interpreting and understanding change, detecting important patterns hidden in your information, and much more.
The big idea here is that you can begin applying spatial analysis right away even if you are new to GIS. The ultimate goal is to learn how to solve problems spatially. Several fundamental spatial analysis workflows form the heart of spatial analysis: spatial data exploration, modeling with GIS tools, and spatial problem solving. Spatial data exploration involves interacting with a collection of data and maps related to answering a specific question, which enables you to then visualize and explore geographic information and analytical results that pertain to the question.
This allows you to extract knowledge and insights from the data. Spatial data exploration involves working with interactive maps and related tables, charts, graphs, and multimedia. This integrates the geographic perspective with statistical information in the attributes.
Smart mapping is one of the key ways that data exploration is carried out in ArcGIS. Visualization with charts, graphs, and tables is a way to extend the exploration of your data, offering a fresh way to interpret analysis results and communicate findings.
Typically you might begin by browsing through the raw data, looking at records in the table. Next, you can begin to examine the temporal trends in the data by plotting time on line charts. Information design is used to arrange different data visualizations to interpret analysis results. Combine a series of your strongest, clearest elements such as maps, charts, and text in a layout that you present and share. Insights enables you to quickly derive deeper understanding and powerful results through its rich, interactive user experience.
Insights for ArcGIS has the ability to integrate a variety of data sources for your analysis. It integrates and enables analysis of GIS data, enterprise data warehouses, big data, real-time data streams, and spreadsheets, and more.
Create an Insights workbook, visualize your data, and explore. Add data from different sources, and extend your data with location fields, attribute joins, and calculated fields. Create and interact with great-looking visualizations, thanks to smart defaults.
Update maps, draw buffers, use spatial filtering, and aggregate data across any geography and more. Spatial analysis is the process of geographically modeling a problem or issue, deriving results by computer processing, and then examining and interpreting those model results. The spatial model that you create is based on a set of tools that apply operations on your data to create new results.
Each geoprocessing tool performs a small yet essential operation on geographic data, such as adding a field to a table, creating buffer zones around features, computing the least-cost paths between multiple locations, or computing a weighted overlay to combine multiple layers into a single result.
ArcGIS contains hundreds of analytical tools to perform just about any kind of analytical operation using any kind of geospatial information.
For example, see the comprehensively rich set of operators found in the geoprocessing toolboxes that come with ArcGIS Pro. ArcGIS Pro also includes ModelBuilder, a visual programming application you can use to create, edit, and manage geoprocessing models. Spatial analysis supports the automation of tasks by providing a rich set of tools that can be combined into a series of tools in a sequence of operations using models and scripts.
Through spatial modeling, you can chain together a sequence of tools, feeding the output of one tool into another, enabling you to compose your own model. The metropolitan area of Greater Los Angeles region extends to 4, square miles 12, square kilometers and represents the second-largest metropolitan area in the United States.
The region has retained some of its original natural areas, and in the mountains surrounding the metropolis, the mountain lions cougars are the largest carnivores that live, hunt, and breed in this Southern California area. Our challenge is to ensure they survive. By connecting their remaining natural habitats to one another, in theory, this will allow the animals to seamlessly move between them.
This study analyzed ways to connect cougars located in several core areas with cougars in other geographically separated core areas. You will identify potential wildlife corridors that researchers and authorities can use to develop physical connections between cougar habitats located in the Santa Susana Mountains with habitats in the Santa Monica Mountains, the San Gabriel Mountains, and in the Los Padres National Forest.
Many types of problems and scenarios can be addressed by applying the spatial problem solving approach using ArcGIS. You can follow the five steps in this approach to create useful analytical models and use them in concert with spatial data exploration to address a whole array of problems and questions:.
Set the goals for your analysis. Getting the question right is key to deriving meaningful results. Use geoprocessing to model and compute results that enable you to address the questions you pose. Choose the set of analysis tools that transform your data into new results. Use spatial data exploration workflows to examine, explore, and interpret your results using interactive maps, reports, charts, graphs, and information pop-ups. Seek explanations for the patterns you see and that help explain what the results mean.
Effective exploration enables you to add your own perspectives and interpretations to your results. After exploring and interpreting your analytical results, make a decision and write up your conclusions and analytical results.
Spatial data are an important source of scientific information. The development of high capacity and fast desk and laptop computers and the concomitant creation of geographic information systems has made it possible to explore georeferenced or mapped data as never before. This Handbook summarizes, explains, and demonstrates the nature of current models, methods, and techniques particularly designed for the analysis of spatial data. The book is designed to be a desk reference for all researchers just getting into the field of spatial data analysis as well as for seasoned spatial analysts. Relevant references are given whenever possible to direct researchers to the most useful writings on the subject. Unlike most compendia of this nature, the book starts out by exploring the available software for spatial analysis. We focus on the tools that make analysis possible.

Spatial analysis or spatial statistics includes any of the formal techniques which studies entities using their topological , geometric , or geographic properties. Spatial analysis includes a variety of techniques, many still in their early development, using different analytic approaches and applied in fields as diverse as astronomy , with its studies of the placement of galaxies in the cosmos , to chip fabrication engineering, with its use of "place and route" algorithms to build complex wiring structures. In a more restricted sense, spatial analysis is the technique applied to structures at the human scale, most notably in the analysis of geographic data. Complex issues arise in spatial analysis, many of which are neither clearly defined nor completely resolved, but form the basis for current research. The most fundamental of these is the problem of defining the spatial location of the entities being studied.

A geographic information system GIS is a system designed to capture, store, manipulate, analyze, manage, and present all types of geographical data. The key word to this technology is Geography — this means that some portion of the data is spatial. In other words, data that is in some way referenced to locations on the earth. Coupled with this data is usually tabular data known as attribute data. Attribute data can be generally defined as additional information about each of the spatial features.
ArcGIS Blog. Most data and measurements can be associated with locations and, therefore, can be placed on the map.

- Он очень, очень полный. Ролдан сразу понял. Он хорошо запомнил это обрюзгшее лицо. Человек, к которому он направил Росио.
Несмотря на разногласия со Стратмором по многим вопросам, Фонтейн всегда очень высоко его ценил. Стратмор был блестящим специалистом, возможно, лучшим в агентстве. И в то же время после провала с Попрыгунчиком Стратмор испытывал колоссальный стресс. Это беспокоило Фонтейна: к коммандеру сходится множество нитей в агентстве, а директору нужно оберегать свое ведомство. Фонтейну нужен был кто-то способный наблюдать за Стратмором, следить, чтобы он не потерял почву под ногами и оставался абсолютно надежным, но это было не так-то .
Тайна имела первостепенное значение. Любое подозрение об изменении Цифровой крепости могло разрушить весь замысел коммандера. Только сейчас она поняла, почему он настаивал на том, чтобы ТРАНСТЕКСТ продолжал работать. Если Цифровой крепости суждено стать любимой игрушкой АНБ, Стратмор хотел убедиться, что взломать ее невозможно.
Для того и предназначен этот переключатель, верно. Мидж покачала головой. - Только если файл не заражен вирусом. Бринкерхофф даже подпрыгнул. - Вирус.
Стратмор человек умный, но о вирусах понятия не имеет. У него в голове ничего, кроме ТРАНСТЕКСТА. При первых же признаках беды он тут же поднял бы тревогу - а в этих стенах сие означает, что он позвонил бы. - Джабба сунул в рот кусочек сыра моцарелла. - Кроме всего прочего, вирус просто не может проникнуть в ТРАНСТЕКСТ.
Но Соши, опередив его, уже отдала команду.
Итальянец перевел взгляд на свой маленький потрепанный мотоцикл и засмеялся. - Venti mille pesete. La Vespa. - Cinquanta mille.
Я тоже хотел бы с ней покувыркаться. Заплачу кучу денег. Хотя спектакль и показался достаточно убедительным, но Беккер зашел слишком. Проституция в Испании запрещена, а сеньор Ролдан был человеком осторожным.
Вы уверены, что на руке у него не было перстня. Офицер удивленно на него посмотрел. - Перстня. - Да.
Мы скажем миру, что у АНБ есть компьютер, способный взломать любой код, кроме Цифровой крепости, - И все бросятся доставать Цифровую крепость… не зная, что для нас это пройденный этап. Стратмор кивнул: - Совершенно. - Повисла продолжительная пауза.
