Frequency Analysis

Discussion created by brncfan7 on May 20, 2011
I'm trying to 'smooth out' values I have from a point shapefile across a region. I have over 4600 events over a 15 year period, categorized by a lat/lon point. I want to smooth out these values so that there is a difference in frequency over the area, kind of like a contoured map like one would see with predicted precipitation values - one color represents one frequency, say 2 per year, etc. Does anyone have any advice on how to do this in ArcMap?
