Advanced spatial interpolation methods

ArcGIS Geostatistical Analyst is an extension for ArcGIS Pro and ArcGIS Enterprise that employs spatial interpolation techniques to generate precise and dependable estimates for unknown locations by leveraging measured values from known sample locations. Compare and better interpret geostatistical model results by taking advantage of numerous utilities. 

Find the most suitable prediction model by automating the selection process. ArcGIS Geostatistical Analyst provides the essential tools needed to predict and model spatial phenomena, making it a key resource for professionals in fields such as environmental analysis, precision agriculture, and petroleum and mining exploration.

Extensive toolbox for spatial interpolation

Fill in data gaps, create predictions, and provide a more complete understanding of spatial patterns with an extensive toolbox of deterministic and geostatistical interpolation methods. Validate your prediction results with the interpolation model and estimate the margins of error with built-in tools.

The following geostatistical interpolation methods are available: 

  • Inverse distance weighting (IDW)
  • Interpolation with barriers
  • Kriging and cokriging
  • Empirical Bayesian kriging (EBK)
  • EBK regression prediction
  • Areal interpolation
  • Empirical Bayesian kriging 3D

Seamlessly collaborate and share results

Collaborate with others using ArcGIS Enterprise and ArcGIS Online to share prediction results and geostatistical workflows. ArcGIS Geostatistical Analyst seamlessly integrates spatial interpolation modeling within ArcGIS environments. It empowers you to answer critical questions about variable values and estimate uncertainties through analysis to support confident decision-making.

How it works

Explore data

Use maps and charts to examine the statistical and spatial properties of the input datasets to decide which interpolation models to use.

Model spatial correlation

Use a semivariogram to model spatial correlation in the input data, make predictions using the fitted model, and quantify the uncertainty.
