Site and Situation
The concepts of site and situation can be articulated as two axis:
  • The site (vertical axis) is mostly related to the attributes of a location, which mainly fall within physical, infrastructure and economic characteristics. They are usually amenities that make a location attractive to specific activities (e.g. commercial, residential, manufacturing).
  • The situation (horizontal axis) is related to the relationships with other locations at the local, regional or global scale. It reflects the connectivity of a location to other locations.
