dc.description.abstract Geospatial facility location science places a strong emphasis on geographical and spatial factors influencing site suitability for networks of facilities with complex location requirements, such as radars, tele - communication towers, watchtowers and wind turbines. Tradi tional placement procedures are designed to accommodate one type of facility only according to one placement objective, and are typically highly problem-specific. A generic geospatial facility location frame - work for identifying facility location trade-off alternatives was designed and was implemented as a computerised decision support system. The system also contains a novel, highly effective, multi-objective facility placement optimisation algorithm inspired by the aggressive manner in which viruses spread in mammals. en_ZA
