This tool produces a point layer where all points for each polygon are placed at the center using mean of all vertices.

Restriction: This tool can only be implemented on a polygon layer.

The Center of Mass tool can be selected by navigating the following path:

  • Tools > Vector Processing > Spatial Analysis > Center of Mass

The first section requires you to select required data layers to run the Center of Mass tool.

  • Select a Polygon Layer - Layer on which you will run this tool.

The second section requires you to select the range of data for the operation to be implemented. There are three options available:

  1. Select By Data Queries
  2. Select By Graphics
  3. All Data

For more information about these options and how to implement them, see Data Selection Methods.

The output is represented as a single point on each of polygons on the selected layer based on mean of all vertices.

You can view the output after storing it. To save the output, you must enter the Output Layer Name and click on Save Data button. The saved output will be added as a new layer in the current map session, where you can apply styling as required. This output layer will also be available in 'My Data' section and can be used in any map session of interest.
