How can GIS be used to facilitate the siting of public and private facilities and to resolve disputes over zoning? What other types of technologies can help resolve these contentious issues?

Program Plan Intro

Problem solving process:

  • The decision making phase of problem solving is been divided into three phases:
    • Intelligence:
      • It denotes first stage of decision making.
      • The potential problems or chances are been defined in this stage.
    • Design:
      • It denotes second stage of decision making.
      • The alternative solutions are been developed to problem and feasibility is evaluated.
    • Choice:
      • It denotes third stage of decision making.
      • It requires choosing an action course.
  • The problem solving process goes outside decision making and includes other stages too.
  • The stages involved in problem-solving process after decision making is shown below:
    • Implementation stage:
      • It denotes fourth stage of problem-solving.
      •  A solution is been put into effect in this stage.
    • Monitoring stage:
      • It denotes final stage of problem-solving.
      • The decision makers assess implementation.

Explanation of Solution

GIS used for facilitating siting of public and private facilities:
