I have a feature class of polygons within a geodatabase and I'm trying to generate points based on the centroid of the polygon using the Feature to Point tool in ArcGIS 9.3. However, I end up with several points that fall just outside of the polygon. So ... is this the wrong tool to be using for this application? Also, am I making the wrong assumption about this tool generating points from the centroids of polygons?
The online help indicates that you must check the box to be INSIDE so that a point inside the polygon will be used for the output.
