Analysis and Geoprocessing

You can adjust how field lists display using the menu next to every field parameter in geoprocessing tools. In addition, you can visualize and customize network dataset symbology based on the restriction status. We have also added a Model View toolbar within each model view, Nearest Neighbor 3D, and Hot Spot Analysis Comparison. Lastly, Geoprocessing tools that consume ArcGIS credits will display an error banner if the estimated credits exceed the available credits.
