These are the photos of the one day training of ArcGIS Geostatistical Analyst, lectured by Mr.Thillai held at the Department of Zoology and Environment Management, Faculty of Science, University of Kelaniya. Most of our participants to the workshop are from the GIS industry and who had worked on the ArcGIS platform.


 ArcGIS Geostatistical Analyst

Use Advanced Statistical Tools to Investigate Your Data


ArcGIS Geostatistical Analyst provides a powerful suite of statistical models and tools for spatial data exploration and optimal surface generation. It allows you to create a statistically valid prediction surface, along with prediction uncertainties, from a limited number of data measurements. From determining whether an environmental safety threshold has been exceeded to locating mineral deposits, ArcGIS Geostatistical Analyst lets you model spatial data in a reliable and intelligent way. ArcGIS Geostatistical Analyst enables you to take advantage of these tools and techniques in an interactive graphical user interface (GUI) and as web services.


With ArcGIS Geostatistical Analyst, you can do the following:

  • Explore data variability and spatial relationships, look for unusual data values, and examine global and local trends.
  • Utilize multivariate analysis to create optimal statistical models to produce reliable maps of predictions, prediction errors, quantiles, and probabilities for improved decision making.
  • Modify model parameters interactively or automatically optimize them using cross validation.
  • Determine optimal locations to create or update a monitoring network.
  • Prepare for worst-case.
