Effective Growth Management (ArcUser Online)

GIS allows for multiple criteria evaluation (MCE). This analysis is mainly characterized by allocating weights to assessment criteria for suggesting and ranking alternatives. GIS spatial planning support tools have an important advantage—changing the valuation criteria to visually illustrate and depict the implications of different spatial decisions and alternatives is convenient. The capabilities needed for decision making readily available in a single system make GIS a great tool for integrating in planning processes. This article describes a study that showed how GIS spatial analytical tools can be used to effectively shape decisions that foster urban growth management.

    This is the first time I've seen a GIS that is finally focused on multi objective decision making using weight based criteria, since SPANS GIS by Tydac technologies back in the mid 80's. I have always maintained that the real strength of GIS was is in this domain. The redistricting problem for school closures, consolidation and new school construction requires this scientific approach in order to support the decision making process....well done...Ian McHarg would have been proud.
