Industrial site selection is one of the basic vital decisions in the start-up process, expansion or relocation of businesses of all kinds. Starting from the meeting criteria deined in the business strategy, site selection process begins as recognition of existing or projected need to meet new or growing market. Recognition of the need of new industrial location initiate a series of activities directed for looking geographical area and speciic location. Conquer new territories for business starts with collecting geopolitical data, where location is a part of it. The selection of an industrial site involves a complex array of critical factors involving economic, social, technical, environmental, political issues, etc. It is obvious that many factors must be involved in the decision-making process, which makes the problem challenging choice in the selection of appropriate tools to enable concentration data, information and analysis. New trends in information technologies put geo-information technology in the centre of events in industrial locations science. Geographic In- formation Systems (GIS) provides functionality to capture, store, query, and analyse geographic information, but that is not enough for multi criteria analysis and decision making. Recent development in GIS leads to dramatic improvement in multi-criteria decision analysis (MCDA) and decision making. This paper presents the state of the art in GIS based multi-criteria decision analysis for industrial site selection.
