Extending spatial DSS with spatial choice models of multipurpose shopping trip behaviour
Spatial choice or interaction models have been widely used in spatial DSS or customised GIS for analysing the impacts of retail location plans. The models typically used, however, do not account for spatial agglomeration effects on spatial choice behaviour.

The model system is implemented in the spatial DSS called Location Planner. An empirical
