Developing (group) decision _x000D_support systems (DSS) that can help community planners identify solutions which balance environmental, _x000D_economic and social goals. These systems are designed to be scalable, adaptable and flexible to allow fair _x000D_assessment of new ideas and technologies. Our DSSs facilitate the exploration of alternative solutions by visualizing the effect of various trade-offs and their consequences in relation to sustainability goals and_x000D_ preferences of the different decision stakeholders.
