Architectural Outline of GIS-Based Decision Support System for Crop Selection

Part of the Smart Innovation, Systems and Technologies book series (SIST,volume 77)


For Indian farmers, the crop selection decision is a very crucial task as number of factors need to be taken into consideration. To drive out from this situation, a solution is proposed which apply analytic hierarchy process (AHP) and GIS in terms of a crop selection decision support system in Indian scenario. The framework was outlined, created and executed over a selected farm. This paper portrays the implemented systems architectural framework.
