Customising kernel density function

Discussion created by mikdale on Jul 19, 2011
Hi all,

I would like to produce a map of the population potential (see links below) of the US. I think that the kernel density tool is a good way to go, but I would like to have the population density decay as 1/d, rather than following a gaussian curve.

Does anyone know if it's possible to customize the function within the tool, or does anyone have another idea of how I might be able to map the population potential?

Cheers,

Mik Dale
