A quick tour of Crime Analysis tools

The Crime Analysis Solution contains many tools to support key analytical functions to manage data, select crime incidents, conduct tactical and strategic analysis, investigate crime patterns and share information with other law enforcement personnel. Below is list of the tools by group with details for each tool.

Data Management

Tool Name Description
Add Data An ArcGIS Pro command that adds layers and layer packages to a map.
XY Table To Point An ArcGIS Pro Data Management tool that creates a new point feature class box on x and y coordinates defined in a table.
Geocode Addresses An ArcGIS Pro Geocoding tool that geocodes a table of addresses. This process requires a table that stores the addresses you want to geocode and an address locator or a composite address locator.
Convert Time Field An ArcGIS Pro Data Management tool that converts time values stored in a string or numeric field to a date field.
Convert Coordinate Notation An ArcGIS Pro Data Management tool that converts coordinate notations contained on one or two fields from one notation format to another.
Extract Date Parts to Field A Crime Analysis tool that creates new fields containing date parts (hour, month, year, and so on) from a user-defined date field.
Append Attributes From Polygon A Crime Analysis tool that appends attributes from a polygon layer to a point feature class.
Enrich An ArcGIS Pro Analysis tool that enriches data by adding demographic and landscape facts about the people and places that surround or are inside data locations.
From XY Table A Record Import tool called Configure Record Import (XY) that builds a configuration file containing the parameter values required to import incidents from a table containing x and y coordinates. The configuration file is a required input to the Import Records tool.
From Address Table A Record Import tool called Configure Record Import (Addresses) that builds a configuration file containing the parameter values required to import incidents from a table containing addresses. The configuration file is a required input to the Import Records tool.
Import Records A Record Import tool that imports records from a table into a feature class or web layer using parameters from a configuration file. The configuration file is created by the Configure Record Import (Addresses) or Configure Record Import (XY) tools.

Selection

Tool Name Description
Select An ArcGIS Pro commands that provide interactive feature selection involves clicking a single feature in the view or digitizing a shape to select a set of features.
Select by Attribute An ArcGIS Pro Data Management tool that adds, updates, or removes a selection on a layer or table view based on an attribute query.
Select By Location An ArcGIS Pro Data Management tool that selects features in a layer based on a spatial relationship to features in another dataset.
Select By Date and Time A Crime Analysis tool that selects features based on date and time ranges (for example, last 14 days) or parts (weekdays, 8-10pm). Requires date and time values to be in a date field.
Attributes An ArcGIS Pro command that displays the Attribute pane.
Clear An ArcGIS Pro command that clears the current selection in the active map.
Layer From Selection An ArcGIS Pro command that creates on new layer based on a selected set of features in an existing layer.

Tactical and Strategic Analysis

Tool Name Description
Summary Statistics An ArcGIS Pro Analysis tool that calculates summary statistics for field(s) in a table.
Buffer An ArcGIS Pro Analysis tool that creates buffer polygons around input features to a specified distance.
80-20 Analysis A Crime Analysis tool that calculates cumulative percentage for an 80/20 analysis of problem locations.
Incident Count A Crime Analysis tool that creates a polygon or polyline layer with the corresponding incident counts. This tool has limited functionality at a Basic license level.
Percent Change A Crime Analysis tool that calculates percent change for each polygon or polyline layer over a period of time. This tool has limited functionality at a Basic license level.
Kernel Density An ArcGIS Pro Spatial Analyst tool that calculates a magnitude-per-unit area from point or polyline features using a kernel function to fit a smoothly tapered surface to each point or polyline. This tool requires a Spatial Analyst license.
Density Change A Crime Analysis tool that creates a raster output that shows change between two kernel density outputs. For illustrating how kernel density hot spots have changed from one period to another. This tool requires a Spatial Analyst license.
Optimized Hot Spot An ArcGIS Pro Spatial Statistics tool that creates a map of statistically significant hot and cold spots using the Getis-Ord Gi* statistic.
Space Time Cube An ArcGIS Pro Space Time Pattern Mining tool that summarizes a set of points into a netCDF data structure by aggregating them into space-time bins.
Emerging Hotspot An ArcGIS Pro Space Time Pattern Mining tool that identifies trends in the clustering of point densities.

Investigative Analysis

Tool Name Description
Incident Sequence A Crime Analysis tool that creates sequential connecting lines between related incidents based on a date field.
Incident Path A Crime Analysis tool that creates linking lines between two layers based on unique identifiers.

Create and Share Information

Tool Name Description
Create Chart An ArcGIS Pro command that creates a chart to visualize categories, distribution, change and relationships in your data.
New Layout An ArcGIS Pro command that creates a new layout and add it to the project.
Web Map An ArcGIS Pro command used to share the active map as a web map to your organization.
Web Layer An ArcGIS Pro command used to share all data layers in the active map as a new web layer to your organization.
