Description/Abstract

Locational analysis has grown to maturity over the last decades, from its earliest roots, to fruitfulness in a wide-ranging number of strands that join with other disciplines and applications such as environmental planning and supply chain management. We chart the progress of location theory in three stages: a period of early contributions, when a number of seminal geometrical and geographical problems were studied; a “coming of age” with the development of defining or classical problems that have proved fundamental to much later research and a third period of new models and new applications
