- How is ST_PointOnSurface calculated? 1 answer
I am interested to know how the Point on surface tool works in QGIS 3. I am choosing to use this rather than the Centroids tool which works of the "center of mass" methodology because this creates a point outside the area of the polygon which is not suitable for my needs.
The QGIS documentation does not seem to explain the calculation used but I would like to know so I can test whether it is suitable for my analysis and so I can incorporate an error with my calculations.
