Key Elements


Spatial Decision Support Systems



SDSS facilitates the decision making process while confronting semi
-
structured spatial decision problem. SDSS
are domain specific solutions unlike general purpose GIS.

o
Intelligence (is there a problem or an opportunity for a change?)

o
Design (what are the alternatives?)

o
Choice (Which alternate is the best?)



Facilitates group decision making


What

it is?
Where

it is?


How
good

it is?
(effective, sustainable, profitable, socially acceptable and environment friendly)


What is going to be the impact of it, where and when?

Artificial Intelligence


Artificially intelligent computing techniques like ANN (Artificial Neural Networks), fuzzy
Logic, data mining and auto knowledge discovery are used to overcome the problems
where complex linear and non linear relationships are present between dependent and
independent variables. These techniques have proven to be an alternative of empirical
modelling techniques and are widely used in different fields.


I
n our research we are exploring and
incorporating following AI techniques to
overcome such problems:

o
ANN (Artificial Neural Networks)

o
SOM (Self Organizing Maps) for
clustering

o
GRNN (General Regression Neural
Network) for regression analysis and
prediction.

team

is

involved

in

developing

an

SDSS

for

the

effective

and

efficient

adoption

of

unconventional

applications

in

Wales
.

It

will

help

of

government,

and

to

confront

spatial

related

The

integrates

from

covering

and

aspects
.

It

uses

The

system

is

focused

is

enough

to

be

anywhere,

provided

the

that
