I have a shapefile with a bunch of parks represented as polygons and I wanted to build a shapefile with the centers of those polygons represented as a point. Is that possible?
I have found that I am able to create a center point for all of the center points combined using the "Mean Center" function in the Spatial Analyst section of the Toolbox but that gives me s single point that is centrally located to all of the polygons. I am instead trying to create one point in the center of each polygon (I have 15 polygons, so I want 15 different points, one in the center of each). I know now that I can make each polygon its own shapefile and then use the mean center function 15 times, but there must be a more efficient way.
