Contents Notes
Part I: Preliminaries -- GIScience Approaches to MCDA -- Overview of GIS-MCDA -- GIS-MCDA: A -- Survey of the Literature -- Part II: Spatial MCDA: Methods.-Multiattribute Decision Analysis Methods -- Multiobjective Optimization Methods -- Artificial Intelligence Methods -- Dealing with Uncertainties -- Geographic Visualisation and MCDA -- Multi-scale GIS-MCDA -- Spatial-temporal MCDA -- Part III: Spatial MCDA: Technologies -- Desktop GIS-MCDA -- Client/Server-based GIWS-MCDA. This book is intended for the GIS Science and Decision Science communities. It is primarily targeted at postgraduate students and practitioners in GIS and urban, regional and environmental planning as well as applied decision analysis. It is also suitable for those studying and working with spatial decision support systems. The main objectives of this book are to effectivley integrate Multicriteria Decision Analysis (MCDA) into Geographic Information Science (GIScience), to provide a comprehensive account of theories, methods, technologies and tools for tackling spatial decision problems and to demonstrate how the GIS-MCDA approaches can be used in a wide range of planning and management situations.
