We consider a geometric set covering problem. In its original form it consists of adding stations to an existing geometric transportation network so that each of a given set of settlements is not too far from a station. The problem is known to be NP-hard in general. However, special cases with certain properties have been shown to be efficiently solvable in theory and in practice, especially if the covering matrix has (almost) consecutive ones property. In this paper we are narrowing the gap… CONTINUE READING
