Euclidean allocation analysis II

2016/10/28

Imagine you need to promote recycling. Imagine you have 1000 inhabitants from a small village and you need to provide proper colored plastic bags for each and every one of the categories you need to disaggregate: organic, plastic and paper.

You need to service them all properly but you can only choose 5 shops (out of the 10 available)  where you will distribute the bags for free.

In green all 1000 inhabitants (houses) and in orange the placement of all ten shops.

In green the final result: the 5 shops chosen out of the 10 potential available due to having checked they are the most optimal (the shortest euclidean distance).
