Polygons to Deepest Points

Running programmatically

Creates from each polygon in the input feature class an inside point located farthest from the polygons boundary. Attributes of the original features are transferred to the resulting polygons.




The function uses an interpolation algorithm and the precision of the calculation might not be 100%

Examples (the center of the circle in the images below are the "deepest" points for each polygon):
