Today GIS technology is using in different fields for intelligent decisions in disaster management. Many conceptual frameworks for disaster management the first aimed at helping the decision makers. Particularly Intelligent Decision Support System (IDSS) conclude the integration between the real time data expert system and model computations for taking the right decision in the right time. In this paper, the researcher presents a geospatial intelligent decision support system conceptual framework for Disaster Management in developing countries. This conceptual framework can help decision makers to decrease the damage and trapped or injured people in disaster areas. Also, this conceptual framework will support the medical services and save lives in the right time.
