Defensive Power Analysis by Spatial Concept: A Case Study of Meiktila
- As a geographic perspective, there are no two similar places in all over the world. This fact highlight the spatial identity of a place and it can be used as a power depending on the intelligence of the local people. World’s history shows that the places located nearby border area have been subsequently suffered unwanted invades while those located at the centre have been fostered for their defensive or offensive power. In doing so, the role of spatial concept has been recognized days after days. In this study, potential defensive power of a central place is analyzed by means of a new method named as Concept of Potential Coverage (CPC). Meiktila, a district city of Mandalay Region is selected as the case study area and the potential defensive power of that city is analyzed by CPC Method. This paper highlights on the potentiality of locational advantage on defensive power for Myanmar with the consideration of infantry field by using missile.
