MB2015_V1_00_Centroid_Inside is the inside centroid point layer for the major released version of the annually released meshblock pattern as at 1 January 2015. The "inside" centroid is a point which always falls inside each Meshblock polygon as this is desirable in some users' cases. The placement of the point is typically in the widest part of the polygon.The algorithms used are proprietary to ESRI and are related to label placement. Note that the "inside" centroid is NOT always the same as the centre of gravity ("true" centroid) of the polygon as in some situations the true centroid may fall outside the meshblock geometry. The dataset contains the EASTING and NORTHING attributes of the centroid point in NZGD2000 New Zealand Transverse Mercator (EPSG:2193) and LATITUDE and LONGITUDE of the centroid point in decimal degrees in WGS1984 (EPSG:4326) projection. This version contains 47,046 Meshblock inside centroid points. Non-digitised meshblocks do not have have an inside centroid.
