This e-book presents an in depth evaluation of 3 interrelated matters: land fragmentation, land consolidation, and land reallocation, and it offers intimately the theoretical heritage, layout, improvement and alertness of a prototype built-in making plans and determination help procedure for land consolidation. The approach integrates geographic details platforms (GIS) and synthetic intelligence recommendations together with specialist platforms (ES) and genetic algorithms (GAs) with multi-criteria determination tools (MCDM), either multi-attribute (MADM) and multi-objective (MODM). The procedure is predicated on 4 modules for measuring land fragmentation; instantly producing substitute land redistribution plans; comparing these plans; and instantly designing the land partitioning plan. The provided examine presents a brand new clinical framework for land-consolidation making plans either by way of idea and perform, via proposing new findings and by means of constructing higher instruments and strategies embedded in an built-in GIS atmosphere. It additionally makes a worthy contribution to the fields of GIS and spatial making plans, because it offers new equipment and concepts which may be utilized to enhance the previous for the advantage of the latter within the context of making plans aid systems.
“From the Sixties, bold examine actions got down to notice relating to IT-support of the complicated and time eating redistribution techniques inside land consolidation – with none virtually suitable effects, earlier. This clinical paintings is probably going to shut that hole. This unusual book is very advised to land consolidation making plans specialists, researchers and lecturers alike.”

"Planning aid platforms take new medical instruments in line with GIS, optimisation and simulation and use those to notify the method of plan-making and coverage. This publication is among the first to teach how this is continuously performed and it's a triumph of demonstrating how such platforms should be made operational. crucial examining for planners, analysts and GI scientists."
