    Default looking for a way of calculating median center

    Hi,

    I was trying to calculate the median center of my data. This concept has been described in Mitchell (2005), but in ArcGIS under the Spatial Statistics Toolbox, I could not find the corresponding tool to calculate. Where can I find it.

    Thanks.

    Peng

    The tool is called "Median Center," and it's in the Spatial Statistics toolbox under the "Measuring Geographic Distributions" toolset.

    You must have just missed it. Happens to the best of us.

    Some spatial statistics literature makes distincion between median centre and point of minimum travel. Vhat is the distincion between them? Thanks.

    I think the tool you're looking for is Central Feature. It finds the feature with the smallest cumulative distance to all the other features.
