Short summary
The objective of this paper is to present a general integrated framework to evaluate land suitability for the optimal placement of solar park, which is based on a combination of a GIS, remote sensing techniques, and multi-criteria decision-making methods. Innovative aspect derives from the proposed tool as currently implemented within a local GIS, which provides a versatile platform of analysis and semi-automation of the operations, which might also extended into full automation.
