      Description

      Vladimir Agafonkin came up with an algorithm for calculating poles of inaccessibility to give good labelling points for odd shaped polygons.

      See https://www.mapbox.com/blog/polygon-center/ for a discussion of algorithm

      It would be nice if we had this functionality available as a function so it could be added to GeoServer SLD files.
