Abstract/Description: This thesis studies the 1-center problem on road networks, an important problem in GIS. Using Euclidean embeddings, and reduction to fast nearest neighbor search, an approximation algorithm is devised for this problem. On real world data sets, extensive experiments are conducted that indicate fast computation of constant factor approximate solutions for query sets much larger than previously computable using exact techniques. A web interface was provided for generic queries on a map interface.
