Abstract New information technologies like multimedia, virtual reality, and GIS are enhanced within the framework of decision support systems through the display of graphic information, which allows rapid, integrated assessment of a very large (or infinite) variety of possible decision strategies. Moreover, new technique described in the paper helps decision makers to select a small number of strategies and to subject them to further detailed exploration and what-if analysis. The approach is based on the FEASIBLE GOALS method. and is exemplified with the real-life DSS for water quality planning.
