SDSSs have been designed for locational planning[13-15].
There are four types of factors that have hindered the development of the use of GISs as SDSSs: the balance between costs and benefits; the historical development of location and locational marketing strategy within retail businesses; establishment of the role of a GIS as SDSS; and an appreciation of the competitive advantage to be gained by appropriate use of GISs.
However, effective use of GISs as SDSSs also depends on full integration of GIS into the armoury of decision-support tools used by retail managers.
