Analyst's Notebook Connector for Esri provides tools for conducting geospatial analysis on the data in your data sources. For example, you can filter chart items according to their proximity to points or areas, or find likely routes between items on a chart. Drawing a buffer A buffer is an area that includes all points within a specific distance of another location (or range of locations) on a map. A buffer is useful for proximity analysis, or to define a search area. Calculating a service area In Esri, a service area is the set of points that can be reached from a starting point, according to a configurable set of rules. For example, a service area might define where a pedestrian can reach in five minutes from their current location, or where water can reach in a network of pipes. Finding a route You can use Analyst's Notebook Connector for Esri to find a route between two or more locations on a map, according to the rules of a particular network analysis layer. For example, you might want to find a route between two locations along a road network. Querying a feature layer Given an Esri feature layer, you can find features that lie within a certain area on a map. The available features depend on the layer. For example, the feature layer might provide information about US cities or recent incidents of theft.
