International Meeting Centre of Gravity Tool
Use this tool to find the best place to hold a meeting for it's attendees by inputting various international addresses. The international COG tool will then work out the centre of gravity for the meeting. This will be represented by a marker on the map. This marker may be on land or on the sea. If it is on land, then the nearest address will be shown.

can it calculate out the average radius from the COG to all of the cities enteredÉ Or else the center of a freehand-drawn polygonal area on the map?

elisa, you can do that using this tool : Radius Around a Point on a Map.

LOVE IT and use it all the time to meet clients. Is there a way to add a radius around the central location point?

1)Can we add more addresses to the COG list?
2)Can we use multiple features on a map (e.g. Concentric circles and also the COG on the same map or others simultaneously)
3) Add Multiple placeholders to a map.
I am really sorry, but I know I am asking for a lot especially, when it is a free service you are providing.

Hi Rufus, good idea. We will look in to this.

Can we get the address (or location), when we click on a placeholder?

Hi Jo, there is a UK version here ...Meeting COG For Postcodes but there is no driving route.

This is good! Just wondering if you can create a UK version, including drivetimes?

Hi Rich, thanks for reporting. This should now be fixed.

Tried Florida and New Zealand, got a spot off the E coast of Africa. I would have thought mid-Pacific more likely. Date-line issue?
By Rich on 6th July 2014
Hi, It should now work.

I don't see the map. Is this supposed to be up and running?
By Olivier on 25th February 2014
Fantastic tool. Is there anyway to add more addresses?
