This book identifies the underlying principles that govern siting, community development, and product/service delivery. Included are step-by-step procedures to perform: site location, land-use planning, location-routing, competitive allocation of products/services and spatial forecasting. The treatment goes well beyond the state-of-the-art, suggesting specific emerging techniques that are able to address the following problems: emergency-response to natural and manmade hazards, environmental planning, infrastructure management, intelligent transportation systems, real-estate development, remote-sensing, supply-chain management and urban land-use plans. Mindful of the cross-disciplinary nature of today's practice, this book equips professionals and researchers with the necessary techniques and software to work effectively with other members of the team, often from a different background. Location, Transport, and Land-Use is supplemented by many examples, case studies and solutions.
