Hello all! I am struggling using kernel density to show my points as density per square meter. I have gone through everything I can online to find a solution and still come up with the same result. I have tried changing the projected coordinate system several times. Both of my layers seen in my screenshot have the same PCS NAD_1983_Michigan_GeoRef_Meters; I chose this because I want my units to be in meters.
When I go to use the kernel density this is what happens:
Which as you can see is not right. I want it to show the amount of points per square meter and based on those values that is not correct. There are only 460 points here. Can someone help, please?
You don't "change" a projected coordinate system, you have to use the "Project" tool in arctoolbox. It will make a new file in the specified coordinate system. One of them isn't projected
