Coastline Population Density Analysis

Hi Everyone,

I am trying to create a raster base on a series of population measurements along a coastline. I would like to create an output similar to this:

My data consists of a series of points spread along a couple hundred kilometers of shoreline, each point has a number assigned to it based on population evidence (# of burrows). The points are at non-regular intervals and consists of wide areas with no data and a large amount of clumping at other locations.

I have tried several methods in both Spatial and 3D analyst, but I have yet to come up with a single raster that is not empty. Is there a technique that will work on data in a linear formation?

Thanks for any help you can give.
