Compute Central Location with Different Distance Functions

CentralFeature is a location measure that gives a point in the data with the minimum total distance to every other point in the data. The distance measure depends on the type of data, and some types admit various distance functions.

Consider the 10 largest cities in Florida and find a central location.

Compute the central feature based on GeoDistance.
