    The evaluation of real estate assets is currently one of the main focal points addressed by territorial marketing strategies, with the view of developing high-performing or competitive cities. Given the complexity of the driving forces that determine the behavior of actors in a real estate market, it is necessary to identify a priori the factors that determine the competitive capacity of Cited by: 7. Multiple criteria decision making is a major and rapidly growing field of research. Methods resulting from this field of research are used in this book to develop a Multiobjective Decision Support Systems (MODSS) for environmental management.

    Successful decision support approaches tend to take a tiered iterative approach, rather than making conclusions in a single step. The proper engagement of stakeholders is vital. Decision support needs to be based on an adequate site conceptual model and good data management. Decision support systems and tools rely on internal concepts and models. A book on Decision Support Systems for Risk-based Management of contaminated sites is appealing for two reasons. First, it addresses the problem of contaminated sites, which has worldwide importance. Second, it presents Decision Support Systems (DSSs), which are powerful computer based tools for assessment and management in complex interdisciplinary decision .

The expertise of the chapter writers spans an equally extensive spectrum of researchers from around the globe including universities in Cited by: 3.

The book characterizes an interdisciplinary research on artificial intelligence techniques (rule-based reasoning, case-based reasoning, ontologies and planning) applied to environmental decision-support by: 1.

The complexity of issues requiring rational decision making grows and thus such decisions are becoming more and more difficult, despite advances in methodology and tools for decision support and in other areas of research. Globalization, interlinks between environmental, industrial, social and political issues, and rapid speed of change all contribute to the increase.

Decision support systems (DSS) have evolved over the past four decades from theoretical concepts into real world computerized applications. DSS architecture contains three key components: knowledge base, computerized model, and user interface.

DSS simulate cognitive decision-making functions of humans based on artificial intelligence methodologies (including. Purchase Environmental Modelling, Software and Decision Support, Volume 3 - 1st Edition.
