A Multicriteria Spatial Decision Support System for Hazardous Material Transport
Source: Politecnico di Milano
The paper concerns the problem of routing and scheduling hazardous material (hazmat) in urban and suburban road networks. This problem involves conflicting objectives among interested parties: the shipping company, the client, the vehicle driver, the environment agency of the area, the population. In presence of conflicting interests, the use of a Decision Support System (DSS) is recommended. The paper outlines an ongoing work to develop a spatial multicriteria DSS based on a Geographical Information System (GIS) for hazmat transport in the city of Milan.
