ArcGIS Spatial Analyst for Server

This extension gives your GIS server advanced raster data analysis and surface generation capabilities via web services.

With this extension, you can

  • Deploy powerful raster analysis tools for desktop, mobile, and web applications without requiring the end user to install additional GIS software.
  • Provide sophisticated surface modelling capabilities to more people, including analysts, professional staff, and decision makers, regardless of their GIS knowledge or skills.

Why Use ArcGIS Spatial Analyst for Server?

The Spatial extension enhances the value of advanced tools and models created with ArcGIS Spatial Analyst for Desktop by putting those resources to work in repeatable enterprise applications, improving productivity and increasing data analysis capacity for your organisation. You can deliver Web services for

  • Finding optimum locations and areas based on designated spatial criteria (suitability modelling)
  • Calculating distances and directions to closest resources
  • Studying the flow of water across an area, creating stream networks, and delineating watersheds (hydrologic modelling)
  • Creating maps showing the concentration of features across the landscape (density analysis)
  • Utilising many other surface modelling techniques, such as calculating slope, aspect, and hillshade

If you're a registered user of ArcGIS for Server, you can get a 60-day evaluation of the Spatial extension for no cost. Talk to your local Esri representative for more details.


The Spatial extension for ArcGIS for Server is included only with the ArcGIS for Server Advanced edition.
