Indices
Reviews and Testimonials

Civil engineers and other contributors, mostly from Turkey, address transportation planning problems that can be solved by decision support systems, to help transportation planning professionals and students extent their expert information and domain knowledge. Their topics include a data envelopment method for analyzing the efficiency of Turkey's transportation system using a decision support model, the evolution of logistics hubs and a conceptual framework for logistics hubs location decision, a decision support system based on an analytical hierarchy process for urban intersections in transportation planning, integrated spatial planning for protected areas and transportation infrastructures, and a survey of literature on hazardous materials transportation.
