Comment on Enedy (Journal of Geography 92:23-27)
Measurements of central tendency are more complex in two-dimensional space than for one-dimensional data. The additional complexity results not only from the second dimension but also from the arrangement of data. These conditions mean that some linear statistics cannot be converted automatically into areal statistics without careful consideration of their properties. It also means that there has been confusion about the definition of the median center.
