Geostatistical Analyst extension
The geostatistical layers and models you create using ArcGIS for Desktop can be published to ArcGIS for Server and made available to clients on the web by activating the Geostatistical Analyst extension.
The ArcGIS Help describes how to use the broad range of geostatistical modeling and analysis capabilities contained in the Geostatistical Analyst extension. See the following topics for more information:

Working with geostatistical layers and models on the web
Map services and geoprocessing services are the ways that you'll make geostatistical layers and models available on the web. You'll create geostatistical layers and models in ArcGIS for Desktop using the Geostatistical Analyst extension, then publish them to your ArcGIS Server site as map and geoprocessing services. Internet or intranet users can then use these services in supported client applications, such as web browsers and mobile applications.
For example, with the Geostatistical Analyst extension, you can do the following:
- Create map services that contain geostatistical layers.
- Create geoprocessing services that utilize the models and statistical methods in geostatistical layers to analyze geographic phenomena.
