The human population is distributed discontinuously along the various stages of the hierarchy of central places, which is institutional by vocation.

Saving exceptions, around Munich and Nuremberg, the 21 km radius “potatoes” do not always intersect, whereas the triangular-hexagonal theoretical diagram postulates that they must all intersect.

The possibility of mathematical expression is self-evident and is easily realized”: Details Collect From But it is a step too far when the omnipotence of “theory” justifies the fabrication of “exquisite corpses” to salvage a world where manipulation and institutional authority impose an understanding of the relationships between populated location-objects based entirely on a “natural” or “necessary” hierarchical central order.

Instead of moving towards the top, the bottom or the sides, the user whose point of view is supposed to be perpendicular to the map is offered a modified form of the geographic entity seen in a way which depends on what is being shown.

Ordinary and elementary functions are to be found at all the central places, but at the higher levels ib the hierarchy, functions become rarer and more specialised.
