Abstract—The primary goal of any route selection is to find the best one with adopted conditions that meet the predetermined selection criteria. Manipulating spatial data of multiple criteria using Geographic information system (GIS), GPS, and Civil 3D programs is presented in the paper. A case study in Al-Ramadi City, in which the best tram route was chosen, was applied. Six alternative routes were proposed. A multi criteria decision-making (MCDM) methodology was adopted to decide the best alternative. The study proved that a GIS based system combined with (MCDM) techniques may be a suitable tool for transforming geographical data into a decision and can be applied in tramway route planning and design.

Index Terms—tram route, best route selection, criteria weighting, multi criteria decision-making
