Nenkovic-Riznic, M. (2012), SPATIAL ANALYSIS AS A KEY INSTRUMENT IN THE LANDFILL SITE SELECTION – CASE STUDY OF VILLAGES OF SERBIA,9th World congress of Regional science association international, TImisoara, Romania

The European theory and practice recognize new concepts of landfill sites selection based on interdisciplinary research using multi-criteria analysis and model-based approaches to site selection, based on pre-defined location criteria and parameters (geographical, geomorphologic, hydrological, etc.). This paper will present the results of a research conducted in rural communities located in the Stara Planina Mt. Nature Park. Through testing the initial hypothesis on the differences, but also correlations, between the criteria of open dumps created in rural areas and the location conditions given by theoretical parameters, as well as scientific bases (deterministic model), a location-specific model, corresponding to the research polygon, has been created for the simulation and evaluation using the GIS environment and with the support of the AHP and SAW methodologies. The research has been conducted using the ArcGIS Spatial Analyst software with the aim to stress the importance of using mathematical and geostatistical analysis in the planning practice.
