Definition:The remoteness of a location, based on the physical road distance to the nearest urban centre and its population size.
Context:

Geographic remoteness is essentially a measure of a physical location's level of access to goods and services. Large population centres tend to have a greater range of goods and services available than small centres. Typically, a population centre is not likely to provide a full range of goods and services until its population reaches around 250,000 people.
