The Incident Analysis template is an Esri Defense and Intelligence template which contains maps and tools that can be used to perform pattern and trend analysis and author situation maps showing incident locations and types of significant activity.

This template illustrates how you can:

  • Provide an example of an incident map.
  • Provide tools and layers needed to explore patterns and trends of past incidents.
  • Help you create thematic maps and services using point symbols to represent your incident data.

This template is the starting point to discover spatial patterns and trends in significant activity in your area of interest. The tools to help you do this are included in this template:

  • Cluster Analysis
  • Count Incidents by Lines of Communication
  • Find Percent Change
  • Hot Spots by Area
  • Incident Density
  • Incident Hot Spots
  • Incident Table to Point


Incident Analysis requires specific technical experience and software. Minimum system requirements for the ArcGIS Platform can be found on the Support website.
