A knowledge-based approach for the implementation of a SDSS in the Partenio Regional Park (Italy)

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

The paper recommends a methodology for data gathering and processing through the spatial analysis techniques and the combinatorial multi-criteria procedure of Weighted Linear Combination (WLC). The purpose concerns the spatial problem structuring in a complex decisional context lacking in the geographical dataset. The processing of data and information provided by VGIs and Open Systems is crucial for the enrichment of spatial datasets in these circumstances, but it is advisable to make attention about the data reliability and the known problems of the geographic dataset, i.e. Modifiable Areal Unit Problem (MAUP). The method was tested with the case study of 27 Municipalities around the Partenio Regional Park, in the South of Italy. Within the SDSS, the multidimensional landscape’s indicators were combined with data gathering on the field, in order to build an evolving informative system. A multidimensional approach, focused on the recognition of environmental, social, economic and cultural resources, was chosen providing some strategies of enhancement for the overviewed landscape of the Park. The evaluation of the policy and actions for the examined regions generated scenario-maps through multi-criteria procedures and GIS tools.
