Appreciate it if someone could guide me as to how to create a point based density grid on ArcGIS Pro using Kernel density.
Basically, I am trying to replicate a study on fishing intensity derived from fishing vessel positions (raw points - see pic 1) and transform the data into a heat map - see pic 2.
So far Im trying to use kernel density, but am unable to interpret the previous studys information on how the intensity map was derived.
In pic 2 - cell sizes for the densities are 500x500m grids – creating 0.25Km2 grids
So the questions are regarding kernel density inputs:
What should the 'cell size' be?
What should the Search Radius be?
Im assuming the Area should be Square Kilometers
I am a complete novice to ArcGis pro, so please forgive me for my ignorance!
Help is appreciated.
