Is there a way to calculate the density of a raster cells in ArcGIS?
The dataset I have is of ground points (there are some cells assigned no-value) and I want to calculate the density of points so that I can chose the best interpolation method.

I would use Focal Statistics to calculate the sum of cells within a rectangular moving window.
From the documentation:
Calculates for each input cell location a statistic of the values within a specified neighborhood around it.
The following example shows focal statistics calculated within a 3x3 rectangular neighborhood.
OutRas = FocalStatistics(InRas1, NbrRectangle(3,3,MAP), "SUM", "")
