Abstract

This presents an evaluation of various scenarios for sustainable development on the Greek island of Alonnisos using the new information technology of geographic information systems (GIS). The most desirable development option was very clear after the analysis, but any policy choice must take into account the various actors involved and their conflicting interests. At best the GIS-based decision support system tools may increase awareness of current frictions and future incompatibilities in economic development, environmental sustainability and land-use shifts.
