Absolute Location Identification of place by some precise and accepted system of coordinates
Accessibility Consideration of distance implies assessment of accessibility
Concentration Opposite of dispersion dispersion means the amount of spread over an area so concentration means a close gathering
Connectivity describes accessibility it's a broader concept implying all the tangible and intangible ways in which places are connected: telelphone lines, roads, pipelines, sewers
