When movement is restricted to the chains of a discrete network (for example, roads, pipelines, or aircraft flight corridors), vector-based algorithms, such as Dijkstra's (1959) algorithm and the A* algorithm (Hart, Nilsson, and Raphael 1968) can be used to determine the least-cost path (Huang, Wu, and Zhan 2007).
