Abstract The metric dimension of a graph is the size of the smallest set of vertices whose distances distinguish all pairs of vertices in the graph. We show that this graph invariant may be calculated by an algorithm whose running time is linear in the input graph size, added to a function of the largest possible number of leaves in a spanning tree of the graph.
