The territory of the city of Lviv was divided into zones with the help of Multi-Criteria Decision Making and the Analytic Hierarchy Process to build a map of the suitability of housing. Criteria that have a direct impact on the quality of daily life were taken into account. These criteria were given relative importance. Based on these criteria, geoprocessing operations and the necessary calculations to obtain a suitability map was performed. The zoning of the city of Lviv was determined to assess the suitability of the place of residence.
