I am doing a study on how a changing climate is influencing the spread of an invasive species of moth.
I have climate data in the netCDF format which I have made into both rasters and point representation in ArcMap 10.3. I also have trap data on the invasive species, where the field that is of interest to me is the number of individuals in said trap.
I am wondering if there is a way that I can compare my climate data to these point shapefiles, specifically that field and get a statistically sound answer rather than just visual interpolation.
Is there a tool in ArcMap that I am missing, or can anyone recommend a third party FREE statistical software to run this analysis?
