spatial Decision Support System (SDSS) is a computer information system which can help users flexibly generate decisions to spatial problems and choose the best solution for themselves with the spatial data, application models, software tools and expert knowledge, etc. Therefore, SDSS are systems that focus on decisions involving the spatial problems. SDSS typically uses a variety of spatial and non-spatial information, like data on land use, transportation, water management, demographics, agriculture, climate, epidemiology, resource management or employment. The objective of this course is to provide knowledge of SDSS to individuals and professionals particularly the policy and decision makers who want to enhance their skills in this growing field.
