ArcGIS Geostatistical Analyst provides a suite of statistical models and tools for spatial data exploration and surface generation. Using ArcGIS Geostatistical Analyst, you can create a statistically valid prediction surface, along with prediction uncertainties, from a limited number of data measurements.

With ArcGIS Geostatistical Analyst, you can

  • Explore data variability and spatial relationships, look for unusual data values, and examine global and local trends.
  • Utilize multivariate analysis to create optimal statistical models to produce reliable maps of predictions, prediction errors, quantiles, and probabilities for improved decision making.
  • Modify model parameters interactively or automatically optimize them using cross validation.
  • Determine optimal locations to create or update a monitoring network.
  • Prepare for worst-case scenarios by simulating many possible realizations of an environmental process.

ArcGIS Geostatistical Analyst helps you examine real-world issues in

  • Atmospheric data analysis
  • Petroleum and mining exploration
  • Environmental analysis
  • Precision agriculture
  • Fish and wildlife studies

ArcGIS Geostatistical Analyst enables you to take advantage of these tools and techniques in an interactive graphical user interface (GUI) and as web services.

ArcGIS Geostatistical Analyst is also available as an extension for ArcGIS for Server.
