Location Theory and Decision Analysis [electronic resource] : Analytics of Spatial Information Technology / by Yupo Chan.

By: Chan, Yupo [author.]Contributor(s): SpringerLink (Online service)Material type: TextTextLanguage: English Publisher: Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2011Description: XXXIII, 701p. 280 illus. online resourceContent type: text Media type: computer Carrier type: online resourceISBN: 9783642156632Subject(s): Engineering | Geographical information systems | Regional planning | Engineering economy | Industrial organization (Economic theory) | Regional economics | Human Geography | Engineering | Engineering Economics, Organization, Logistics, Marketing | Geographical Information Systems/Cartography | Human Geography | Industrial Organization | Regional/Spatial Science | Landscape/Regional and Urban PlanningAdditional physical formats: Printed edition:: No titleDDC classification: 658.5 LOC classification: TA177.4-185Online resources: Click here to access online In: Springer eBooksSummary: Employing state-of-the art quantitative models and case studies, Location Theory and Decision Analysis provides the methodologies behind the siting of such facilities as transportation terminals, warehouses, housing, landfills, state parks and industrial plants. Through its extensive methodological review, the book serves as a primer for more advanced texts on spatial analysis, including the monograph on Location, Transport and Land-Use by the same author. Given the rapid changes over the last decade, the Second Edition includes new analytic contributions as well as software survey of analytics and spatial information technology.  While the First Edition served the professional community well, the Second Edition has substantially expanded its emphasis for classroom use of the volume. Extensive pedagogic materials have been added, going from the fundamental principles to open-ended exercises, including solutions to selected problems. The text is of value to engineering and business programs that offer courses in Decision and Risk Analysis, Muticriteria Decision-Making, and Facility Location and Layout. It should also be of interest to public policy programs that use geographic Information Systems and satellite imagery to support their analyses.
