Distance is the space in between two different locations on the earth's surface.
3. Distributions
Distribution is the arrangement of objects on the earth's surface. They can be dispersed, random, linear, radial and clustered.

5. Movement

Movement is the change in location of something. For example; people, water, money etc.
6. Spatial change over time

Spatial interaction is the relationship between things and the degree they influence one another.
