# Working with location sites
A Location site defines where you are working and the geographical location(s) of a program. Using the Sites list, you can compile all the locations your programs and projects working in including offices, project sites, and area of interests.
# Why capture locations?
- Sites provide the ability to generate a visualization of our program/project locations on a map.
- It allows teams and managers to monitor performance within a specific location.
- Supports the ability to manage in areas with remote access.
Over time, it allows teams to track the history of interventions showing how your program and projects has changed.
