This chapter introduces the research issues on spatial decision-making in the context of distributed geo-spatial data warehouse. Spatial decision-making in a distributed environment involves access to data and models from heterogeneous sources and composing disparate services into a meaningful integration. The chapter reviews system integration and interoperability issues of spatial data and models in a distributed computing environment. We present a prototype system to illustrate the collaborative access to data and as a model for supporting spatial decision-making.
