Missing Data? – No problem

Fill Missing Values with the average of the 6 nearest neighbors

Do you have a data set that isn’t quite complete? Maybe a sensor went down, a county has suppressed health data or your sales data is missing a store’s reporting. Depending on the analysis these null values can throw a … Continue reading

Spatial Statistics Resources

*********************************************************************************

We’ve created a new resources page that we’ll be using to provide the latest resources and news. You can still use http://esriurl.com/spatialstats to get there, or access it directly at https://spatialstats.github.io/. If you have this blog post bookmarked, you may want to update it to the new site so that you don’t miss out on new resources!

*********************************************************************************

Whenever we look at a map, we inherently start turning that map into information by finding patterns, assessing trends, or making decisions. Spatial statistics empowers you to answer questions confidently and make important decisions using more than simple visual analysis. Below are resources that will help you learn more. If you have questions or awesome analysis stories, there is a Spatial Statistics Forum on GeoNet — We’d love to hear from you!

Does spatial analysis exhilarate you?  Do you find solving tough problems thrilling?  If you said yes, we are looking for a few people just like you! Come join our passionate team of hard working and close-knit developers and product engineers working to advance space-time data exploration and analysis techniques.  Check out our job postings here!

An updated Space Time Cube Explorer Add-in for ArcGIS Pro 2.0 is now available

The Add-in can help you interact with and explore your space-time cube and analysis results created with the Space Time Pattern Mining toolbox in a simple and intuitive way.  This update includes many new features and enhancements such as the ability to output 3D polygons from a defined locations cube and enhanced time and range slider settings.

You can download the Add-in at www.esriurl.com/SpaceTimeCubeExplorer.
