“Preparation of spatial plan is response to the objectives, which are often in conflict. Planners decide to search for optimal solutions, where the optimum is usually a subjective assessment of meeting the set of goals and criteria. Given that the land is limited resource, it raises more the question of sustainability of life on Earth and the necessity of rational, scientifically-based land planning purposes. This study developed a methodology for multi-criteria land use classification based on a set of relevant factors and geographical parameters, using the AHP method (Analytical Hierarchy Process) for multi-criteria decisions and GIS tools for creation, storage, analysis and operations of the data.
“The developed methodology is tested to solve the problem of evaluation and classification of land for the building construction, using data related to the area of Tuzla Municipality. The result of this research in a general sense is a methodology for multi-criteria land use analysis in GIS needed for spatial planning. In the specific sense a result of this research is the map of categorized land for building construction in the municipality of Tuzla, which clearly indicates the spatial potentials and constraints. Thematic maps, obtained as a result of applying the presented methodology allows planners make rational and strategically important decisions regarding the allocation of land purposes, and planning for sustainable development.”
