I've run through tutorial from ArcGIS on how to create a heat map using Spatial Analysis.

Based on the example, point features are scattered around the map and we need do the following to generate heat map.

Run Project Data -> Integrate Data -> Collect Events -> Run "Hotspot Analysis" -> Run "Spatial Analysis"

Is it possible to generate a heat map if I don't have point features that are scattered around the map but instead I have point features that have an attribute value that represent "Number of point" around this point features?

For example: I have 5 locations.

In the first scenario, I will have

  1. 5 points feature around area #1
  2. 20 points feature around area #2
  3. 40 points feature around area #3
  4. 30 points feature around area #4
  5. 10 points feature around area #5

While for second scenario, I will have

  1. Point feature 1, attribute value: 5
  2. Point feature 2, attribute value: 20
  3. Point feature 3, attribute value: 40
  4. Point feature 4, attribute value: 30
  5. Point feature 5, attribute value: 10

I managed to achieve the heat map I'm looking for using Kernel Density (Spatial Analysis) and use the respective attribute as a value for "Population Field".

You should also move this to a more appropriate space, such as GIS​ or Spatial Analyst​, and use tags to help those searching on this subject in the future.
