Abstract

We describe a framework for a geographic districting DSS. The components included in the framework are an object-oriented geographic data model with built-in capabilities for storing spatial and non-spatial information pertaining to the geographic objects represented in the model; an intelligent spatial query processor that uses domain specific knowledge to reason over geographic data and process complex districting queries; and a knowledge acquisition tool that is used to capture domain specific knowledge. These components are combined together to create an integrated geographic districting DSS. We describe our data model, the rule processing subsystem in the model, and the knowledge acquisition subsystem in detail. Finally, we describe a pilot implementation based on the framework which uses real life census data and demonstrates how the system would work in practice
