Abstract

The Geographic Information System (GIS) is now an important and necessary component integrated in Planning Support Systems (PSS). Using GIS and PSS in the Health and Nutrition sectors worldwide is booming and very developed, but the development in Macedonia, or the use of these systems, is very low. The scope of research for this paper is to prepare models for the creation of PSS systems using the GIS for the health and nutrition sectors and their application in the Republic of Macedonia. The purpose of this research is to create a model that could be used in the Health and Nutrition sectors in the Republic of Macedonia. This shall improve the strategic planning in the Health sector, and it will be much easier to prevent the spreading of diseases. In this paper, an original concept is applied for building a model via GIS modelling and directions are provided for its use. The model is built on the basis of several principles, and one of the most important is to provide greater visibility and full understanding of the process that is built into the model. The building of a good model to use in the Health and Nutrition sectors would help the country, as well as its citizens, to act preventively through the adoption of effective, timely and correct decisions. Research has shown that the application of GIS, in the building of the model, is a very important and necessary component. Key words: GIS, PSS, Nutrition, Health Sector, Model, Modelling.
