I wish to calculate the centroids of a large number of building polygons in OS MasterMap using MapInfo. MapInfo calculates the centroid using the object's Minimum Bounding Rectangle. Theoretically could a building's shape mean the centroid was outwith the building's footprint?


According to this post the centroid is initially forced to be inside of the polygon.
