When someone says location, they could mean a variety of definitions. The term “location” is used to mean different things. Therefore, the true definition may be difficult to describe. However, when speaking in geographical terms, a location is an area that was settled and people lived. Usually a location is known exactly where it is.

An absolute location may have an address instead of general directions. When someone describes a general area, this is a relative location. A location must include staying put instead of traveling through an area. The people must stay at the area in order for it to be considered a location. An example of a location may use latitude and longitude degrees to explain the exact point of the location.
