We consider the problem of locating a circle with respect to existing facilities in the plane such that the sum of weighted distances between the circle and the facilities is minimized, i.e., we approximate a set of given points by a circle regarding the sum of weighted distances. If the radius of the circle is a variable we show that there always exists an optimal circle passing through two of the existing facilities. For the case of a fixed radius we provide characterizations of optimal circles in special cases. Solution procedures are suggested.
