GIS-FLSolution: A Spatial Analysis Platform for Static and Transportation Facility Location Allocation Problem
Static and transportation facility location allocation problem is a new problem in facility location research. It aims to find out optimal locations of static and transportation facilities to serve an objective area with minimum costs. The problem is challenging because two types of facilities are involved and locations of transportation facilities are dependent on locations of static facilities and demand objects. This paper proposes a new stand-alone GIS platform, GIS-FLSolution, to solve the problem. Combined with a customized algorithm called STFLS, the platform is built on MapObjects and can successfully provide results with a friendly graphical user interface. Preliminary experiments have been conducted to demonstrate the efficiency and practicality of the platform.
