|Our siting research focused on
determining possible locations for a new recreation facility in the
Guelph. A number of objectives were outlined that helped execute our
We first determined the social, accessibility and environmental factors
played a role in siting. A GIS model was created using MCE analysis
assigned weights to each criteria. By using GIS, we were able to store
manipulate the data we retrieved and create an output that determined
suitable sites. The last objective was to re-evaluate our model and
two sites. The factors originally considered were taken into
both sites and it was found that the locations satisfied our factors.
created was successful for our purpose and could be further improved by
into consideration the limitations described. This model can be applied
future siting studies.
