Average coordinates of POIs in folder

PawelS shared this idea 4 months ago
Declined

Hi

My idea is to show average coordinates as a POI called ,,(Folder) Center (average coordinate)". For example you have a folder of your targets (pubs or summits) and you'd like to know from where would be the nearest to them all.

Hello Pawel,

what is the benefit of such feature? Why should any other user need it and use it?

Hello Menion

The nearest point to your all targets would be the best localization for your accommodation.

The nearest point is something completely different than "average point". So my question remains.

Also, nearest point may be very simply solved by the "Sort by distance" option in the point folder.

I wasn't clear enough: the nearest point on average to all other points

Here is illustration what I mean: http://desktop.arcgis.com/en/arcmap/10.3/tools/business-analyst-toolbox/mean-store-center.htm and it can't be obtained by sorting.

Hello Pawel,

oki, understand what you mean by a "center".

Anyway, I still do not understand why this should be useful to me or any other user. Sorry, this is one of the most important aspects of every new feature: it's a benefit for more/other users. I do not see it here, so the idea declined.
