Many applications are possible with the ArcGIS Spatial Analyst extension tools. Several sample applications are described below:
- Derive information from data—Create useful information, such as watershed delineation, surface estimation, and classification. For example, Spatial Analyst can be used to derive distance from roads or calculate population density.
- Identify spatial relationships—Produce weighted overlays and combine rasters for various analyses using the comprehensive set of tools for cell-based modeling.
- Find suitable locations—By combining layers, find areas that are the most suitable for particular objectives, such as siting a new building or determining high-risk areas for flooding or landslides.
- Calculate cost of travel—Calculate travel cost surfaces to identify optimum corridors, factoring in economic, environmental, and other objectives.
