Modeling Topological Properties of a Raster Region for Spatial Optimization

Two topological properties of a raster region – connectedness and perforation – are examined in the context of spatial optimization. While topological properties of existing regions in raster space are well understood, creating a region of desired topological properties in raster space is still considered as a complex combinatorial problem. This paper attempts to formulate constraints that guarantee to select a connected raster region with a specified number of holes in terms amenable to mixed integer programming models. The major contribution of this paper is to introduce a new intersection of two areas of spatial modeling – discrete topology and spatial optimization – that are generally separate.
