Consensus-building in a Multi-Participant Spatial Decision Support System

  title={Consensus-building in a Multi-Participant Spatial Decision Support System},
  author={Rob Feick and D G Hall},
17 Introduction Geographic Information Systems (GIS) have gained increasing acceptance as important tools for the organization, manipulation and display of data pertinent to many urban and regional planning activities. Much of the success of GIS implementation in the planning field has been in the areas of task automation, spatial data creation and enhanced map and tabular report production. Particularly significant are the capabilities of GIS to integrate large volumes of spatial and non…

A spatial decision support system for the provision and monitoring of urban greenspace

The objective of the system under development is to assist local authorities and green space administrators to strategically enhance the supply of urban greening with the right type and variety of green space that maximizes public welfare.

GIS-based land-use suitability analysis: a critical overview


The initial development of a decision support tool (DST) to appraise the urban soil resource and its valuable functions within a wide range of urban environments to support true transparency in decision making at the local and international levels is described.

Building a Decision Support System for Agricultural Land Use Planning and Sustainable Management at the District Level in Vietnam

This research aims at developing a decision support system (DSS) to improve the decision-making capacity of administrators as well as other interested parties. The system will help develop their

The Evolution of GIS as a Land Use Planning Conflict Resolution Tool: A Chronological Approach

This paper argues that there is a reciprocal relationship between the emerging planning approaches and the GIS techniques adopted in the land use planning process. Such relationship is explained by

Narrowing the gaps between conservation assessment, planning, and implementation via spatial decision support systems that are “living” and integrated

: Spatial conservation prioritization does not necessarily lead to effective conservation plans, and good plans do not necessarily lead to action. These “science-action” gaps are pernicious and need

Developing GIS decision support to stakeholders on agricultural land use planning in HA Tinh Province, Vietnam

Land use planning in Vietnam has been conducted but still insufficient for many years. In rural areas, it has been predominantly relying on assessing the suitability of soil for agricultural

The Appropriateness of Multicriteria Analysis in Environmental Decision-Making Problems

The appropriateness of MCA for environmental decision problems can be viewed in the context of a typical decision- making process, making it easier to identify the contribution MCA can make at various decision-making stages.

Describing the Fire Vulnerability of Landscape Structures in the Slovak Paradise National Park

The submitted paper presents the proposal of the specific spatial decision support system (SDSS) for the data management, prediction and fire suppression in the wildland-urban interface (W-UI) area

The integration of multi-criteria evaluation techniques with GIS is forwarded as providing the user with the means to evaluate various alternatives on the basis of multiple and conflicting criteria and objectives.

Multicriteria analysis and geographical information systems: an application to agricultural land use in the netherlands

Regional and urban planning problems are often hard to solve for various reasons. Large amounts of data are needed, due to the number of spatial units involved or the range of phenomena taken into

Using geographic information systems in urban planning and policy-making

This chapter presents typical GIS functions and discusses their comparative crudity, and illustrates the sorts of functions which are necessary to the urban planning process in the form of models and spatial analytic techniques.

Integrating Geographical Information Systems and Multiple Criteria Decision-Making Methods

A framework for integrating geographical information systems (GIS) and MCDM methods is presented and choice heuristics used by the decision-makers in the presence of competing alternatives and multiple evaluation criteria are proposed.

The Multiple Criteria Location Problem: 2. Preference-Based Techniques and Interactive Decision Support

This is the second of two papers in which multiple criteria location problems (MCLPs) are discussed. In this paper two major approaches to locational decisionmaking are overviewed: optimizing

Multicriteria evaluation in physical planning

Decision Aids for Selection Problems

This chapter discusses the development of Criteria Hierarchies, a Hierarchy Development Process for Real-World Applications of AHP, and its application to the Nuclear Dump Site Selection Decision.

Complex Decision Situations

The essence of decision making is in the formulation of alternative courses of action to meet the situation under consideration and in the choice between these alternatives after an evaluation of their effectiveness in achieving the decision maker’s objectives.
