Hi,

I'm searching for a tool to efficiently compute centroïds, and I really appreciate the way they are produced using Saga-GIS.
However, I think it would be usefull to have the opportunity to (as an option for the computation) require that the centroid falls within its polygon.

I guess the correction (when required : when the centroid is outside the polygon, or in a hole) would be possible by taking the closest point from the polygon to the initial candidate (the current proposition for centroid)

Thanks for evaluating this feature suggestion
