GIS MCDA - Tanzania - Dairy processing (UHT/powder) sites

The source raster dataset represents top location score areas filtered by exclusive criteria: access to finance, distance to major roads, access to IT and distance to urban areas. The layer was produced under the scope of FAO’s Hand-in-Hand Initiative, Geographical Information Systems - Multicriteria Decision Analysis for value chain infrastructure location.

The location score is achieved by processing sub-model outputs that characterize logistical factors for dairy processing (UHT/milk powder) facilities siting: Supply, demand, Infrastructure/accessibility. The top 99th percentile is selected/clipped using the exclusive criteria - access to finance, distance to roads, distance urban areas, access to IT - and the resulting raster classified in 3 equal intervals.

Proposed or recommended sites use the final location raster top class within the exclusive criteria filter, and are pinpointed using large-scale visual map inspection - OpenStreetMap, Google and Bing, maps, and satellite image - to detect, logistics and industrial districts, port and railway station proximity, availability of space in urban area and to avoid residential and touristic areas or districts.
