Can anyone give me a hint where to find a list of the geographical centers of all countries over the world? (In case I don't want to calculate them from other data.)


I found several sources of "country centroids."

And of course there are many sources of country boundaries, which you can convert to centroids and export as lat/long coordinates in any GIS software.


Firstly, there is usually no universally agreed upon geographical centre for a country; it depends on how you measure certain parameters.

Second, this probably isn't the right place to be asking this question.

Having said that, have a look here and here.

  • why would this not be the right place? it violates terms? there are places with more people who know about this specific type of data? etc? – iconoclast Oct 29 '20 at 21:10
