Hot Spot with Rendering Tool

Discussion created by rjd730 on May 29, 2012
When you use the Hot Spot Analysis tool, you can specify "conceptualization" (ex. inverse distance squared) and "standardization" (ex. row) options as well as threshold distance.  However, when you use the Hot Spot with Rendering tool you only get to specify threshold distance.  I can't find documentation of how Arc GIS calculates the Gi* statistic when these parameters are not specified.  Does anyone else know how the calculations are made?
