Evaluation of PROMETHEE for spatial vision development on Dutch coastal marina planning
MetadataShow full item record
This study deals with an evaluation of the Preference Ranking Organization METhods for Enrichment Evaluation (PROMETHEE). In this study, an enhancement is made with the Analytical Hierarchy Process (AHP) for criteria weighting. The evaluation is projected on a case study on finding new possible locations for marinas along the Dutch coast. By using different spatial criteria, and having several alternatives for possible locations along the Dutch coast, the enhanced PROMETHEE method is evaluated on usability for governmental vision development. The study uses a broad view, considering a large part of the Dutch coast. This study shows strengths and weaknesses of the PROMETHEE method in the light of vision development. The outcomes give on the one hand an overview and ranking of the possible locations for new marinas including their strengths and weaknesses. On the other hand, the model is evaluated and discussed.
