GIS can effectively work in the field of site selection urban waste landfill through gathering, weighting, analyzing and displaying spatial data. Site selection for urban waste landfill in very important and its process is complicated and has various quality and quantity criteria. In this paper a hybrid method has been prepared to determine suitable site for urban waste landfill. For doing this weights of requirement layers are specified by AHP method than noted locations are categorized in three classes: Best, Good and Weak. In the last phase, first zones in the best class are ranked by Promethee V method and then with regarding practical constraints such as budget restriction and their internal connections, the best region(s) are determined for urban waste landfill though solving a Zero-One programming optimization procedure. Also the given method has been executed on Tabriz city as a case study and doing sensitive analysis on weights has shown that the selected alternative is suitable and has enough robustness.
Keywords: Site Selection for Urban waste Landfill, Analytical Hierarchy Process (AHP), Promethee II and V, Zero-One Programming and sensitive Analysis
