## Name

ST_GeometricMedian — 멀티 포인트의 기하학적 중심값(median)을 반환합니다.

## Synopsis

`geometry ST_GeometricMedian (` geometry geom, float8 tolerance = NULL, int max_iter = 10000, boolean fail_if_not_converged = false`)`;

## 설명

Computes the approximate geometric median of a MultiPoint geometry using the Weiszfeld algorithm. The geometric median is the point minimizing the sum of distances to the input points. It provides a centrality measure that is less sensitive to outlier points than the centroid (center of mass).

The algorithm iterates until the distance change between successive iterations is less than the supplied `tolerance` parameter. If this condition has not been met after `max_iterations` iterations, the function produces an error and exits, unless `fail_if_not_converged` is set to `false` (the default).

If a `tolerance` argument is not provided, the tolerance value is calculated based on the extent of the input geometry.

If present, the input point M values are interpreted as their relative weights.

2.3.0 버전부터 사용할 수 있습니다.

Enhanced: 2.5.0 Added support for M as weight of points.

This function supports 3d and will not drop the z-index.

This function supports M coordinates.
