I am doing a point density analysis on about 1500 points across southern California. The tool and results are working correctly, but value's assigned to them do not make sense.

Under the Table of Contents the Values are

0-20,600

20,700-41,200

41,300-61,900

62,000-82,500

...and so on, going in 20,000 increments for 10 values. How do I make sense of these numbers for the general public such as "orange means there is a density of 15 people and blue means there is a density of 45 people"

Or perhaps this is the wrong extension I am using?

Thank you for your help.

Matt,

The density values are calculated for each cell. The cell center is where the neighborhood begins. Your example came to the wrong answer. Attached is how you would obtain something that fits in your range of 0.2 -7.2 using your example of 2000 points occurring in a neighborhood that size.

Best,

Eric
