  author={Steven van Dijk and Dirk Thierens and Mark de Berg},
In many geographical optimization problems, the linkage (which determines the structure of building blocks) is determined by the spatial relationships between the components of a solution. Therefore the linkage can be identi ed easily, unlike in most other problems. Based on this observation, we develop a hybrid GA that uses a geometrically local optimiser one that computes good solutions to subproblems that are local in the geometric sense. One of the main advantages of our method is that it… CONTINUE READING
