Perform analysis using notebooks

The notebook editor provides an Analysis pane to browse and add the code snippets for the analysis tools available in your ArcGIS Enterprise portal. The standard feature analysis tools are always available in the pane, and the GeoAnalytics Tools and raster analysis tools are available if those capabilities are enabled by your organization's license. To access the pane, click Analysis on the top ribbon of the notebook editor.

Adding a tool to your notebook inserts the ArcGIS API for Python syntax for that tool into a new cell.

Explore the Analysis pane

When you open the Analysis pane, each available toolset appears as a tab. On each tab, the tools are grouped into categories, identical to how they appear in your ArcGIS Enterprise portal.

To view the tools in a category, expand or collapse it using the button next to the category. Click the Info button for a category or a tool to view its details. When you locate the analysis tool you want to use, click the Add button Add to add the Python code snippet corresponding to the tool into a new cell in your notebook.

Standard feature analysis tools

Standard feature analysis tools can be used to perform common analytical functions such as finding hot spots, locating streets and addresses, finding a place, routing, or accessing a geodatabase. By performing analysis, you can answer questions and make decisions using more than visual analysis.

GeoAnalytics Tools

These tools can be used to perform analytical functions that analyze patterns and aggregate data in the context of both space and time. Your analysis can be performed more quickly and with larger quantities of data than could previously be computed on a single machine.

Raster analysis tools

The raster analysis tools, enabled by ArcGIS Image Server, are used to analyze and process imagery and raster datasets, such as multispectral satellite and aerial imagery, elevation, and scientific and classified datasets. The tools can analyze imagery based on algorithms, analyze spatial patterns, analyze terrain to derive surfaces, summarize data, and manage data. You can create and run spatial analysis models and image processing chains while using distributed processing and storage. These tools manage and perform scalable raster analysis and image processing on large volumes of raster data from multiple sources.
