    There is a growing consensus on the necessity of transforming GIS into real decision support tools and several authors have pleaded for the elaboration of Spatial Decision Support System (SDSS). In this paper, we recommend the integration of GIS and Multicriteria Analysis methods. We present the reasons that have led to this integration and a conceptual framework to facilite it. A prototype will also be presented to show whata such SDSS could be.
