We are a group of students who are new to ARCGIS and we have been trying to cluster or group points based on their proximity in time. We have a bunch of data that contains coordinates and time, and we would like all points with a time during the first 15 minutes to be in one layer, all the points in the next 15 minutes in another, and so on.

Thanks in advance.

Generate Near Table (Analysis)—ArcGIS Pro | Documentation

Aggregate Points (Cartography)—ArcGIS Pro | Documentation

Density-based Clustering (Spatial Statistics)—ArcGIS Pro | Documentation

are some of the tools that come to mind.

putting it together may require separating out the time data into separate featureclasses or processing the results once done

Then if there is movement involved, there is the toolset

What have you looked and ruled out would be a good first start

... sort of retired...
