Analysis is a systematic examination of a problem that provides new information. ArcGIS APIs support many types of analyses, from simple geometry-based analysis to advanced spatial analysis. You can also combine analysis operations to build models. Combining operations into a series of steps for modeling or for the automation of repetitive workflows (for example, batch processing) is known as geoprocessing.
