Hello!

I'm working on a project to visualize the frequency of snowplows on a road. I have both my points (representing snow plows) and the shapefile for the roads. While I can see where the plows are clustered after loading the files, I want to quantitatively analyze the frequency too. However, I have never done an analysis like this, so I am at a loss on how to even start.

Thank you for your time!

You may want to start by a spatial join between your road segments and your points.  After that you can perform summary statistics on the resulting feature class that will give you a count of points per segment.

That should just about do it....
