Spatial Analyst: Finding the Best Locations Using the Suitability Modeler
Suitability modeling addresses a wide range of applications including identifying the best place to site a housing development or corporate headquarters or what areas to conserve for a park or wildlife habitat. The Suitability Modeler uses an interactive graphical user interface to make it easier to create a suitability model. It is based on the premise that creating a model is an iterative exploratory process. Through immediate feedback from interactive maps, charts, and histograms you are provided with tools to make better decisions on the input parameters and how they impact the results.
