Central Place Theory has been shown to apply in a number of places, especially when the local situation is close to the underlying assumptions of the theory (Berry and Garrison 1958b; Brush 1953, for example). Even in cases where the spatial arrangement of the settlements cannot be easily explained by Central Place Theory, the formation of lower-order settlements around central places that provide certain goods or services is still evident and can be observed everywhere in the developed world. As such, Central Place Theory explains networks of dependencies, where smaller settlements depend on goods, services, and the job markets of a larger settlement in their vicinity.
Hecht and Moxley (2009) have conducted an extensive experiment to demonstrate the validity of Tobler’s First Law of Geography (Tobler 1970) in Wikipedia across different language editions of the online encyclopedia. , interlinked—on Wikipedia. In this paper, we take the concept of relatedness one step further by investigating how strong a place relates to another one, using the number of links and mentions as indicators. We show that this degree of relatedness reflects the functional dependencies between places as explained by Central Place Theory.
