A Spatial Decision Support System for Locational Planning : Design , Implementation and Operation

  title={A Spatial Decision Support System for Locational Planning : Design , Implementation and Operation},
  author={Paul J. Densham},
In addition to their archival and display functions, spatial information systems have often incorporated an analytical component. Often, this capability has not provided decision-makers with the degree of modelling flexibility and support that they require. Spatial decision support systems are designed to assist decision-making by fully integrating analytical, display and retrieval capabilities; in this paper we describe the development of such a system for complex locational planning problems.
