Using ArcGIS Desktop 10, I need the histogram of the frequency to heights distribution like in the attached picture.

Is there another toolkit to access this data?

A screenshot is not suitable. The attribute table is not helpful, too.



The two ways which usually works quite well for me are

  1. Histogram graphs which you can create from View menu > Graphs. Tutorial on that.
  2. Statistics window which can be opened from the attribute table. Right-click the column name and choose Statistics.

If you want to create a more professional histogram, you could use external libraries such as Python libraries or R.

  • Thanks for the answer. The first way is rather helpful, but i cannot access the real count values like in my image. But Thank you anyway. – arvandus Aug 28 '14 at 17:24
  • What do you mean by "real count values". When you create a histogram graph the count is on Y axis and value on X axis. – Rich Wawrzonek Aug 28 '14 at 21:06
  • Am I missing something or can't the Make Graph and/or Save Graph Tools do what's needed? – user23715 Aug 28 '14 at 21:55
  • Or the Graph Wizard under the View Menu-->Graphs-->Create Graph... – user23715 Aug 28 '14 at 22:02
  • With real values, i meant in like in the screenshot. On X are heights and on Y are their abundance/frequency. In another forum someone said without scrips or mathlab, this screenshot seems the only "easy" way. – arvandus Aug 29 '14 at 1:01

The histogram can also be easily created by the Geostatistical Analyst (Geostatistical-Analyst-License needed).

  • Open Geostatistical Analyst toolbar
  • Choose "Explore Data" --> "Histogram" (or another type of statistical plot)
