We're planning on doing some cluster analysis exposed as a geoprocessing service in ArcGIS 10 - specifically these two:
But we have to meet a specification for cluster analysis in a brief - promised to the client without my knowledge - where we need to get a set of clustered points where it meets these 3 parameters:
- a Set of Features
- n points within a Cluster
- distance band to look in
For example "find me the points where each cluster has 10 points within 50 meters" or something to that effect.
ArcGIS 10 has the two tools I’ve linked above but they don’t really meet the specification - specifically the n points within a cluster part - or at least not to my limited knowledge.
What I want to know is if it is possible with the tools in ArcGIS? And is the cluster analysis I’ve described proper cluster analysis and if so what type?
We did have a version of this in another application but I really wanted to use the tools within ArcGIS.
