Abstract

Multi-criterial analysis under the current use of digital geographic data is a quite common method used to evaluate the influence of the geographic environment on a planned or ongoing activity. The advantage of this method is a possibility of complex evaluation of all influences as well as a possibility to observe how the individual influences manifest in the final result. Its critical moment is establishing the structure of individual factors that influence the given activity, setting their weights and, subsequently, a choice of a suitable user function. The article provides guidelines how to set the individual decision-making criteria including setting their weights, and the application of the resulting user function in GIS environment with regards to the problem solved. Furthermore, the influence of change in weights of criteria on the complete result of the analysis is discussed. This article documents detailed studies that show how the results of solutions can differ in the same analytical task based on change in the weights of individual criteria. These studies are documented on a model example of a chosen suitable place for the deployment of decontamination center. Finally, the article describes possibilities of further development of the model solution, with the aim to make it a verified tool that may be implemented in the systems of command in Fire Rescue Service units and Chemical Troops units of the Czech Army.
