Is there a way to create a raster that counts points?

I have dresses (points) and I want to know how many addresses are in a square of 100m. So I also need a tool t measure one meter. I think it is quite simple, but I don't even now how this tool should be called. I'm using ArcGIS 10.4 on a Windows.


Have a look at the point density tool in ArcGIS. Here is a link to the tool http://desktop.arcgis.com/en/arcmap/10.3/tools/spatial-analyst-toolbox/point-density.htm Set your output cell size to 1 meter and the neighborhood settings to 100 m square.


If you are trying to make a grid of 1m squares, try the grid index features tool. Then calculate the Zonal Statistics to determine the sum (or count) of the points within each of the grid cells. You can then join the new statistics table to the grid and symbolize, etc as necessary.
