This question is related to the replies in this earlier thread (How to interpret GRASS v.kernel results?).
I am new to GIS mapping (arcGIS) and have been trying to work with the Kernel Density output. I have read on many threads that a good way to check Kernel Density output is to multiply the density values by the area of the cell and then sum those values over the grid. That sum should be equal to the number of points (in my case) in the original data.
To multiply the density values by the area of the cell: The only density values I see are when I 'Identify' a cell producing a single density value for a single cell and the density classification legend used to symbolize the raster in the Table of Contents. How do I extract the density values from each raster cell? (So I can multiply those values by the area).
Or should I be generating density values for each cell from the density classification legend presented in the Table of contents?
