ArcGIS Spatial Analyst is an extension to ArcGIS Desktop that provides powerful tools for comprehensive, raster-based spatial modeling and analysis. Using ArcGIS Spatial Analyst, you can derive new information from your existing data, analyze spatial relationships, build spatial models, and perform complex raster operations.

Self-documenting models make it easy for others to understand the spatial analysis process applied, examine what-if scenarios, and compare results. With ArcGIS Spatial Analyst tools, you can

  • Find suitable locations.
  • Calculate the accumulated cost of traveling from one point to another.
  • Perform land-use analysis.
  • Predict fire risk.
  • Analyze transportation corridors.
  • Determine pollution levels.
  • Perform crop yield analysis.
  • Determine erosion potential.
  • Perform demographic analysis.
  • Conduct risk assessments.
  • Model and visualize crime patterns.
