Site selection is critical for planning a real estate development project. Different mathematical and statistical models have been applied to support real estate developers in selecting suitable sites for development projects. This paper presents a new approach to site location selection that makes use of Geographical Information Systems (GIS) that incorporates the utilization of the Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) method called a GISbased site selection system. With the implementation of this system, users can determine the most suitable site objectively and visually. The paper also demonstrates an application of the system to a residential building project.
