A Location is a place or position where structure elements can be located or behavior can be performed.

The Location concept is used to model the distribution of structural elements such as Business Actors, Application Components, and Devices. This is modeled by means of an Aggregation relationship from location to structural element. A Location can also aggregate a behavior element, to indicate where the behavior is performed.
