Abstract

This paper introduces a new planning support system currently under development for land consolidation in Cyprus called LACONISS (LAnd CONsolidation Integrated Support System). The system’s structural framework is outlined and the core land redistribution sub-system called LandSpaCES (Land Spatial Consolidation Expert System) is exemplified using a case study. Model evaluation indicates that the results provide a close fit to those derived by independent human experts. Alternative solutions are generated under different evaluation scenarios and sensitivity analysis is used to examine the weights and performance scores of the criteria involved in the process. Keywords : land consolidation, land reallocation, expert systems, genetic algorithms, multicriteria decision methods, Cyprus
