Decision support system (DSS) is a broad concept which caters to the suit of ICT based applications assisting decision makers in order to take appropriate and timely decisions. DSS can help decision makers to make appropriate queries and take particular decision about a particular a particular horticulture crop in order to decide about new areas for plantation as well as supply chain logistics. This system will help in making future projections and consumptions and make scenarios for demand and supply. This system basically works on the premise of spatial network analysis, Site-suitability analysis for cold storages, shortest path analysis, image (raster) operations as geo-spatial layer provided to the system. This system is combination of vector and raster data handling in an integrated way. This DSS software site suitability module is designed for apple and it has been tested with available data for shimla district of Himachal Pradesh and network analysis module is designed potato and it has been tested with the available data for Gautambuddhnagar district of Uttar Pradesh.
