Specifying Values using the kernel density tool/ Getting an output

Discussion created by csmith2587 on Nov 20, 2012
If anyone would be able to give me some advice or resources for using the kernel density tool in Arcmap 10 it would be appreciated!

I have successfully used the kernel density tool, however, I do not know how to make the kernels specify percentiles of 50, 75, and 100% in order to look at an animals home range. Should I be setting this as a quantile classification with 5 classes?

I am also not certain how to read the kernel density once it has been completed. In other words, what kind of output should I be getting in terms of data analysis.

Unfortunately I am not the best at using Arcmap 10 and I am not really familiar with how to use the kernel density tool. I attached a snapshot of what my work looks like
