Package com.esri.arcgis.geoprocessing.tools.geostatisticalanalysttools

With Geostatistical Analyst, you can easily create a continuous surface, or map, from measured sample points stored in a point–feature layer, raster layer, or by using polygon centroids.

Class Summary
GACalculateZValue Uses the interpolation model in a geostatistical layer to predict a value at a single location.
GACreateGeostatisticalLayer Uses an existing geostatistical layer to create a new layer, which includes a new feature dataset or variable.
GAGetModelParameter Gets model parameter value from an existing geostatistical model source.
GALayerToContour Exports a geostatistical layer to contours.
GALayerToGrid Exports a Geostatistical layer to an ArcInfo GRID.
GALayerToPoints Exports a geostatistical layer to points.
GAMovingWindowKriging The kriging model is automatically estimated for each neighborhood as the kriging interpolation moves through all the location points.
GANeighborhoodSelection Creates a layer of points based on a user-defined neighborhood.
GASemivariogramSensitivity The semivariogram parameters Nugget, Partial Sill and Range can be varied to perform a sensitivity analysis.
GASetModelParameter Sets parameter value in an existing geostatistical model source.
GaussianGeostatisticalSimulations This tool performs conditional or unconditional geostatistical simulation based on a Simple Kriging model.
 

Package com.esri.arcgis.geoprocessing.tools.geostatisticalanalysttools Description

With Geostatistical Analyst, you can easily create a continuous surface, or map, from measured sample points stored in a point–feature layer, raster layer, or by using polygon centroids. The sample points may be measurements such as elevation, depth to the water table, or levels of pollution. When used in conjunction with ArcMap, Geostatistical Analyst provides a comprehensive set of tools for creating surfaces that can be used to visualize, analyze, and understand spatial phenomena.

Geostatistical Analyst contains tools for exploratory spatial data analysis and a geostatistical wizard to lead you through the process of creating a statistically valid surface. Surface fitting using Geostatistical Analyst involves the following key items:

Exploratory spatial data analysis Structural analysis (calculation and modeling of the surface properties of nearby locations) Surface prediction and assessment of results

New surfaces generated with Geostatistical Analyst can subsequently be used in geographic information system (GIS) models and in visualization using ArcGIS extensions, such as ArcGIS Spatial Analyst and ArcGIS 3D Analyst. The tool contained in the Geostatistical Analyst toolbox converts a layer created with the Geostatistical Analyst extension to a grid so that it can be used in subsequent analyses.
