Neighborhood Time Step in Emerging HotSpots Tool

Question asked by ya674004 on Feb 17, 2020

In the Emerging HotSpots Tool, users could use the parameter "Neighborhood Time Step" to include previous N time-step intervals in the analysis neighborhood. 

My questions are :

1) If the Neighborhood Time Step is set to N, as for those observations at time step interval 1,2,...N, do they have the same neighborhoods as observations at the time interval of N+1, N+2... How does this EHSA tool deal with this situation? 

2) Is there an "appropriate" range of Neighborhood Time Step?


Any comments or suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
