IArea.Centroid Property

The center of gravity (centroid).

[Visual Basic .NET]
Public ReadOnly Property Centroid As IPoint
public IPoint Centroid {get;}


Returns the Centroid of the 2 (or 2.5) Dimensional figure.  The Centroid is the center of the weighted area.


The Centroid does not always occur inside the Area of the geometry.  The Centroid is not the same as the center of the geometry or the Envelope binding the geometry (but it may be if and only if that is also the center of the weighted area).
