The need for a sustainable approach in tourism development is often addressed in a need for tools which will guide the decision environment in evaluation and planning. However, the apparent tools which can guide the decision-making process are limited. This study aims to identify conservation and compatible areas for tourism development in Johor Ramsar site using spatial modeling in Geographic Information System (GIS). The methodological adopted based on the integrated use of GIS and Multi Criteria Decision Model (MCDM) to identify nature conservation and development priorities among the wetland areas. A set of criteria were defined to evaluate wetlands biodiversity conservation and development. Subsequently, the criteria were evaluated from conservation and tourism development’s perspectives by ranked using the pair wise comparison technique of multi criteria analysis (MCA) and the results integrated into GIS then compared to highlight the most feasible and to propose a conservation and development strategy for the wetlands area. This study represents an effective decision-making because the generation and comparison of conservation and development scenarios highlighte
