Using Geoprocessing tools

This sample notebooks shows how geoprocessing tools can be used in an analysis. The analysis below uses a geoprocessing tool to deduce the path that the debris of a crashed airplane would take if it went down at different places in the ocean. It should be noted that this tool is for the purpose of demonstrating GIS functionality and the results should not be treated as authoritative. Further this tool excludes wind or atmospheric conditions, which are critical for a real-world analysis.
