I have some emergency/fire calls that I would like to use to create a hot spot analysis. I would also like to create a density map of this as well. Does anyone have any thoughts where I should get started? I have never used these tools before. I have the calls already geocoded. Thanks, Carrie
I really reccomend looking at the three Hot Spot Analysis videos Lauren Rosenshein created. They are very informative and a great starting point for understanding what the tools do and interpreting their results. It is fairly easy to run the tools but it is another thing to understand the process and the results.
Hi Carrie, A great place to start is our resources page: www.esriurl.com/spatialstats You'll find short videos, a free 1 hour training seminar on spatial pattern analysis, and a couple hot spot analysis tutorials (in fact, one of the tutorials actually uses 911 emergency call data). Best wishes! Lauren
