This achievement is straight forward you'll get it with the normal progression of the game with a little exploration.

****UPDATE AS OF NOVEMBER 9 2011****
The newest patch is out and has fixed the location problem. If you where at 72/72 locations with no achievement load your game up and your achievement should pop.

ACT 1 -18 Total locations
ACT 2 -27 Total locations
ACT 3 -12 Total locations
ACT 4 -15 Total locations
When you get to the point at the end of act 3 (chapter 15) where you have the choice to leave and go to the prison make sure you have 57 total locations. If you only have 56 or less go back and search until you find the one(s) you've missed. For me I was stuck at 44 in Act 2 (knowing I needed 45 locations) and could not find my last location. The Act with the double listing of the gasstation so i quit out restarted my system and bam 45 locations. Not sure if the patch adds a location to fix the double gasstation listing for Act 2 but I then had 45 locations and moved on. So before you search everywhere check you current locations found quit out and reload see if it adds another location for you. But I think it only does this once you reach act 2 since the gas station is listed twice.

Ok if you seem to be stuck at 71/72 locations and cannot find your last location here is a list of few places to check.

1. First it might be in the City of Moresby. After reading through most of the comments it seems a lot of gamers have missed this spot so... Load up from chapter 15 or your current save that gives you access to the City of Moresby anything after Act II. Check your map and if the bottom left corner (SW corner) of moresby is green this is probably your last location. There is a boat there and you are brought here from a side quest that is miss-able.

2. In Act I part of the main quest you are sent to the inside of the Hotel where you will get a bunch of locations note you can only get these locations once if you return it's blocked. If you do this quest with other players it is possible to miss one or two locations so make sure you do this solo and check these locations off as you see them.

3. The other place where you could possibly miss a location or two is in the prison ACT IV (if you play solo you will NOT miss any locations). When playing Act IV with other players there is a possibility that you could miss a location if the other players get ahead of you. So to avoid missing any locations here just play solo or stick with the other players.
