Origin: [L. locatio, fr. locare.]
The terms location and place in geography are used to notice and or identify a point or an area on the Earth's surface or elsewhere. The term 'location' generally implies a higher degree of certainty than "place" which often has an ambiguous boundary relying more on human/social attributes of place identity and sense of place than on geometry.
